Victory Team is all set for the Regione Sardegna Grand Prix of Italy, the third round of the F1H2O World Powerboat Championship, which will be held on the stunning island of Sardegna in the city of Olbia. Victory Team aims to maintain its lead in the third round of the championship with Swedish racer Erik Stark of Victory 4 and his teammate, our hero Ahmad Al Fahim for Victory 3, who is also hoping to top this weekend's race. The event features the participation of nine international teams, including UAE teams such as Victory, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.

As for today's schedule, the team will be doing the official registration, technical scrutineering of the boats, and driver’s briefing before the start of the official practices 1 and 2. Victory Team is all set to test the boats in Mediterranean waters to determine their readiness before the qualifying rounds, which are scheduled for tomorrow morning. In the afternoon, they will also compete in Sprint Race 1 and 2.

Ahmad Al Fahim of Victory Team, who officially joined the competition last 2023 season, is seeking a win in the Regione Sardegna Grand Prix of Italy on his sixth participation in the race. He understands the challenge and pressure this weekend, along with the nine teams represented by 18 boats on a small race track of around 1500 meters, all racing to get the top spot. Ahmad is motivated to do his best after all the learning and experience he gained from past races, along with the training with the technical team that has prepared him for the races this weekend.

Al Fahim praises the continuous support and encouragement from the Board of Directors of the Dubai International Marine Club, the Victory Department, and the technical and administrative staff of the team. He wishes success to everyone, especially his teammate Erik Stark of Victory 4, who is at the forefront of the competition after occupying the lead in the recent race.
