Britain to host round of the World Formula 2 championship

Latest

First time event allocated to UK in over ten years

The National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham is to host the fourth round of the 2012 UIM World Formula 2 Powerboat Championship on September 15-16, the first time in over a decade a round of the series has been held in Britain.

With speeds potentially reaching in excess of 200km/h, this action-packed class of inland circuit racing is fast becoming one of the most high-profile, professional forms of motorsport due to it being a ‘stock engine class’.

The rule keeps the financial running costs to a minimum and ensures success comes to the most talented and knowledgeable drivers.

Some 24 drivers are expected to compete over the race weekend in September, with Britain fielding a strong fleet.
