The Scandinavian Formula 2 Open Powerboat Series is so far the most spectacular concept that powerboating can offer. The growth of this series is a result of continuous efforts of all organisers, teams, sponsors and national federations. They have all supported our Formula 2 concept which now is the most prestigious Powerboat Series to win in Europe. The race sites are always located in center of the race cities and the organisers will present an event that exept boatracing also includes even other entertaining.
Race format can be compared to the American Champ Boat series. All races are run due to the Scandinavian rule system adapted by the Union Internationale Motonautique, Circuit Rules. These powerboat races begin from a standing start along the “pit dock” in the same manner that made Le Mans such a famous event. Each event will present the best racingshow ever seen to large amount of spectators. Participating drivers are coming from most of the World.
Powerboat racing is unlike any other form of motorsport competition. The driver and his/her equipment are matched not only against the field of competitors but also against the ever changing and always unpredictable elements of water and weather. The drivers reach the turn bouy in over 110 mph (175 kph) and in a split second they accelerate out to next one. Drivers can experience up to 4G´s of centifugal forces as they maneuver around the turn bouy. If you watch the races live or on television doesn´t matter. I´m convinced you will be fascinated by the fight.
Powerboat racing is strategy, reading the water, feathering or charging the throttle, outperforming all other drivers and boats under constantly changing conditions. Each lap presents new wave patterns and subtle wind shifts. The track is never constant. Teamwork is the key. The driver, crew chief, crew and equipment must work together. All outside concerns must be put aside on race day. There is little margin for error. Powerboat racing demands total attention.
Scandinavian Formula 2 Open is the ultimate Series to win in powerboat racing next to Formula one.
