Team Abu Dhabi Out to Create History on Home Shores
Team Abu Dhabi stands on the verge of creating history in a sport that it entered for the first time as a host venue in 2009.
The team that runs out of the Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC) will take a 16-point lead in the 2015 UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship into the final two races of the season at this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (November 4-6).
Team Abu Dhabi has entered two boats in the final two races, but victory for the Team Abu Dhabi 6 crew of John Tomlinson and Gary Ballough in the opening sprint on Thursday afternoon would be sufficient to clinch the title, regardless of the outcome of the second race on Friday.Tomlinson and Ballough claimed a pair of stunning victories at the Salerno races in Italy in the summer in their American-built MTi catamaran and arrive at the ADIMSC with a 40-point championship tally.
