The Anglo Austrian team of Hannes Bohinc, Miles Jennings and Ed Williams-Hawk has taken a set-back after their dramatic victory in the eight and ninth rounds of the World P1 championship in Gallipoli.

Driving Wettpunkt.com, their winning results elevated the trio to the top of the championship table in the Evolution class for the first time after trailing the Italian Buzzi monohull Sony, which failed to start in round nine after breaking down earlier. Sony now lies fourth on the overall championship standings but the jubilation of the Wettpunkt.com team was short-lived after it was discovered its crew had broken the 90mph maximum speed rule.

Hannes Bohinc immediately protested against the decision which has still to be resolved.

British hopes were also dashed in the SuperSport class when problems with engine mountings aboard Buzzi Bullet cost Andrew Langdon dearly. Retirement in the first and loss of performance in the second race relegated Buzzi Bullet to the back of the fleet costing Langdon his leading place in the SuperSport championship.
