Powerboat GPS - 2010 Season

Following the news that Powerboat P1 Management Ltd cancelled the 2010 Season, we finally have some more information about this after the 12th April meeting between the parties in Villa Malpensa, Milan, Italy. The bad news is that Powerboat P1 Management will not promote this years season. The good one is that the UIM takes over as promoter of this superb competition and races will be business as usual. So far we have a full calendar in order with three Grand Prix of the Seas fully confirmed, and an other two just waiting full confirmation. If all these will be confirmed that means a total of ten races, as each Grand Prix delivers two events, the longer Endurance and the shorter Sprint, and five Powerpoles. That is the same as the very good 2009 season. In this new calendar here is also showing the return of the Malta Grand Prix which after six consecutive seasons looked like to be cancelled from the previous calendar. Now this is set up again, although other news sources are saying this to be in September, which makes a bit of sense considering the below provisional calendar looks more expensive with various up and down trips on the European continent.
