UIM World Championship F1 H2O Races on 27th-28th of July 2013 in Kiev region, Ukraine

UIM World Championship F1 H2O Races on 27th-28th of July 2013 in Kiev region, Ukraine


On 27th - 28th of July 2013 in Kiev region will take place International UIM World Championship F1 H2O Races.

During two days of Formula 1 Powerboat Racings will be held F1 H2O Championship and Ukraine President Cup 2013. The place of the races is Kiev Reservoir in Vyshhorod near Kiev.

Formula 1 Powerboat racing is the most spectacular watersport in the world. It has been described as driving the F1 race car at full speed over a ploughed field. Formula 1 Powerboats accelerate faster than even the most state-of-the-art F1 cars - they are capable of going from standstill to 160 kilometres per hour in only 4 seconds.

Formula 1 Powerboat is up to 24 lightweight, 16-foot carbon fiber catamaran hurtle around a racing circuit at speeds topping 225 kph (130mph). All F1 boats are powered by highly tuned V6 outboard engines each pumping out 425 horsepower at 10 000 rpm. They boast an awesome power to weight ratio - weighing in at around 500 kilos with a 425 hp fully-tuned engine strapped on the transom. The F1 boats have no brakes or gearboxes.

During each F1 World Championship venue there are two Grand Prix Races – one race on each day of the venue. Each race lasts for 30 minutes of racing time + 2 laps with up to 24 boats hurtle around the race circuit at thundering speed of 225kph (130mph).

Every race circuit is different in size but are generally about 2000 meters in distance. Each circuit has at least one long straightaway and several tight turns mostly left with one or two right turns. The turns produce a G-force of up to 4,5 on the driver which means his weight is multiplied 4,5 times as he makes a tight U-turn at over 100 mph ( F1 car drivers endure only 2.5).

Inaugurated in 1981 this international competition is similar to F1 for cars and similar rules apply. Across the world teams of different nationalities compete in the Grand Prix which is regulated by the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM).
