Team Abu Dhabi’s Shaun Torrente and Faleh Al Mansoori are primed for a crucial test in China this weekend as they look to tighten their grip on a second successive XCAT World Championship crown.
 


The reigning world champions, who lead the 2019 series after winning the opening round in Italy, face three races in as many days in the Shanghai Grand Prix knowing that the title race could effectively be won or lost before December’s final round in Dubai.
 


The added incentive for Torrente and Al Mansoori in Abu Dhabi 4 is to keep Team Abu Dhabi On course for a unique quadruple world powerboat racing triumph this season.



Torrente was a member of the four-man crew who captured the World Endurance Championships in Poland, as was Rashed Al Qemzi who has already clinched his second UIM F2 World Championship title in three years



Meanwhile defending champion Torrente leads the F1H20 World Championship which climaxes in Sharjah in December



“This has already been a very successful season for us and as a team we have the chance to achieve much more,” said Salem Al Remeithi, General Manager of Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club.



“But it’s important to take things one step at a time, especially here in China with such a packed race weekend and so much at stake.”



Rashed Al Tayer and Majed Al Mansoori in Abu Dhabi 5 will also be looking to make an impact in the Shanghai Grand Prix, with official practice getting underway at 12 noon local time tomorrow.



The single pole position session for the weekend roars to life at 10am on Friday with Race 1 of the Shanghai Grand Prix getting underway at 2.30pm.
