Welsh one-two in Aalborg season opener

It was a memorable weekend at the P1 Aalborg Grand Prix of the Sea for the Welsh as they dominated the podium after Platinum Products edged out reigning UK champions Pertemps Network in a closely fought finale on the Limfjord.

The first ever overseas visit by the P1 SuperStock UK race series saw tens of thousands of spectators in the Danish city of Aalborg enjoy two days of world class powerboat racing as the four venue 2017 UK calendar got underway.

After an exciting opening day of qualifying and heats, the Platinum Products team of James Norvill and Charlie Parsons-Young, who lead the 2017 US championship as Team Barbados, held a slender lead over current UK and world champions Sam and Daisy Coleman in Pertemps.

Racing got underway with the Plate Final as the four bottom teams from Saturday’s results battled it out for a wildcard spot in the all important Grand Final and it was Pickfords who stormed to victory ahead of South Street, Typhoo and Arthur J Gallagher.

They would line up alongside Platinum, Pertemps, Experience Kissimmee, Milford Waterfront and the rookie Spirit of Inverclyde team in the Grand Final with podium places up for grabs.

Platinum used their pole position to gain a lead on the first lap and despite Pertemps’ attempts to take their pit lap as late as possible held on for the clean sweep and a maximum points tally of 80.

There was drama in behind as Milford Waterfront managed to launch themselves off the start run to take third before falling back to fourth after their pit lap. However, Kissimmee had not gained a big enough advantage before taking their own pit lap and handed third place back to the Welsh team.

Milford’s third place brought them level on points with Neil and Jason Jackson but were forced to settle for fourth as the fastest lap ruling came into play – a disappointing end to what was a fantastic round for Andrew Foster and Charles Morris who only made their debut in the series last season.

It was a similar story in the battle for fifth as Pickfords and Spirit of Inverclyde finished level on points, the former taking fifth spot based on count back.

The fleet of P1 Panthers now head to Scotland where Greenock will welcome back the championship for a second time over the weekend of 24-25 June.

P1 SuperStock UK kicks off an exciting 2017 in Aalborg, Denmark, on 10-11 June.

The P1 Aalborg Grand Prix of the Sea will take the P1 crews to Aalborg over the weekend of the city’s annual Regatta, a maritime festival both on the water and along the waterfront with attractions for all the family.

“Hosting a P1 event provides us with a wonderful opportunity to present Aaalborg as a cultural and vibrant event city, with the powerboat racing taking place in a beautiful setting” says the Mayor, Thomas Kastrup-Larsen.

“We are proud to be the first P1 host city in Denmark and I’m sure the people of Aalborg will welcome an event of this calibre and turn out in strength to watch all the action.”

Ålborg, is an industrial and university city in the North of Jutland, Denmark. It has an urban population of 112,194,[2] making it the fourth most populous city in Denmark. With a population of 210,316 (as of 1 January 2016), the Municipality of Aalborg is the third most populous in the country after Copenhagen and Aarhus.[2] By road Aalborg is 64 kilometres (40 mi) southwest of Frederikshavn, and 118 kilometres (73 mi) north of Aarhus.

The earliest settlements date to around AD 700. Aalborg's position at the narrowest point on the Limfjord made it an important harbour during the Middle Ages, and later a large industrial centre. Architecturally, the city is known for its half-timbered mansions built by its prosperous merchants. Budolfi Church, now a cathedral, dates from the end of the 14th century and Aalborghus Castle, a royal residence, was built in 1550. Today, Aalborg is a city in transition from a working-class industrial area to a knowledge-based community. A major exporter of grain, cement, and spirits, its thriving business interests include Siemens Wind Power, Aalborg Industries, and Aalborg Portland. These companies have become global producers of wind turbine rotors, marine boilers and cement.

With its theatres, symphony orchestra, opera company, performance venues, and museums such as Aalborg Historical Museum and the Aalborg Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg is an important cultural hub. The Aalborg Carnival, held at the end of May, is one of the largest festivals in Scandinavia, attracting some 100,000 people annually. The major university is the University of Aalborg, founded in 1974, which has more than 17,000 students. The University College of Northern Denmark is one of seven new regional organisations while the Royal School of Library and Information Science (RSLIS) provides higher education in library and information science. Trænregimentet, the Danish regiment for army supply and emergency medical personnel, is also in Aalborg. Aalborg University Hospital, the largest in the north of Jutland, was founded in 1881.
