The Maltese legend of Aaron Ciantar and Chaudron Powerboats continued to show its greatness this weekend on the first leg of the 2014 UIM ClassOne World Powerboat Championship widely regarded as the pinnacle of international offshore powerboat racing.

 

Team Chaudron (Malta) with Aaron Ciantar retaining his traditional driver’s role and the French Corsica man Dominique Martini featuring as throttle-man won Class One V1 at the Ibiza weekend following a 3rd placing yesterday and a 1st place today. The Team also established the best lap timing of the weekend.

 

This weekend’s “Mediterranean Grand Prix 2014” hosted in Ibiza Spain is the first of three meetings making up the 2014 Worlds, organised by H2O Racing under the auspices of the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM). The 2014 Calendar now continues with the second challenge scheduled for the 17th and 19th October in Terracina Italy with Abu Dhabi hosting the U.A.E. Grand Prix between the 29th and 30th November definitely pledging a grand finale to a spectacular Championship.

 

Team Chaudron boat is the 13-metre Chaudron Canopy 41 which had its last international victory in November 2011 at the 31st Key West World Championship in the United States – the ex-Ukrainian Spirit. The twin 800hp inboard engines’ boat – a World Champion – now flies the Malta flag.
