Powerboat OGP - Siracusa, Sicily Preview

For the third consecutive year Syracuse is in the calendar of the Powerboat Endurance calendar, and this today represents one of the most important fixtures of the season.  Syracuse or Siracusa in Italian is one of the most picturesque harbours of the Med, with the classic medieval age Fort on the entrance welcoming you inside one of the largest natural harbours in the World.  
This year Syracuse is the second stop of the season, and this will be a novelty which has in its previous been the closing round of the World championship calendar.  The leaders in both classes; 2B1 Furnibo #33 Evolution, and Jolly Drive Racing Team #06 in Super Sport will have to watch there back as the competitors will make sure to use the trap of a calmer inside, with that of a more turbulent waters outside area part of the track.  For this season Powerboat OGP will also deliver for the first time three round races in a Grand Prix, and Syracuse for this will offer more racing to the fans, and to the racers themselves. The races will be held one each day from Friday, with the Power Pole moved to earlier hours in the afternoon.
