John Moore on 27th April 2019

Team Marine Diffusion won both of the VOOMQUEST Enemed UIM V2 World Powerboat Championship races held in Saint Paul’s Bay, Malta today.

6 teams woke up bright and early this morning to continue their preparation including a drivers’s briefing, giving spectators a unique opportunity to admire the hard-work and dedication of everyone involved.

The Pole Position for Race 1 was cancelled due to unfavourable water, although the first race saw a lot of excitement.

Team Cutting Edge experienced technical issues before the start which prevented them from starting.

Half way through the race, Team El Diablo stopped at a halt, whilst Team Interceptor Remax spun and flipped the boat at one of the turns.
