Jory and Ciantar make power boat history

In a weekend of history-making, #44 Ikocasa created a slice of P1 history themselves to become the first all-female team to win a race in the Powerboat P1 World Championship.

The crew of Shelley Jory and Audrien Ciantar had crossed the line in second position, but were handed the race victory after a one-minute time penalty was placed upon the #43 Seagull Chaudron for over-speeding.

An elated Jory said: "It is a wonderful feeling to make history as the first all-girl team to win a race. I don't think any women have ever got to this high level in motorsports, either in Formula One or IndyCar, so it has been an amazing day. It is a dream come true."

Driver Joe Sgro and throttleman Mike Fiore were forced to draw upon their countless years of powerboating experience to see off the brave challenge of the Belgian #33 Furnibo, who had threatened a major shock midway through the 10-lap race.


A broken sensor prevented the #53 Metamarine Pignolo 53 from starting the race while previous championship leaders #88 SNAV OSG were forced to retire during the first lap when the belt powering the superchargers snapped.
