H2O Racing brings along with the F1H2O, the F4-S, a youth development class that attracts, supports and launches upcoming generation talents aiming for the F1H2O World Championship.
The UIM Aquabike World Championships is one of the fastest, most spectacular and entertaining sports on water that brings together dynamic enthusiasm and the utmost in professionalism.
It is an event that combines speed, skill, artistry and sheer raw power that produces adrenalin-fuelled non-stop action, edge-of-the-seat racing and improbable feats of artistry and acrobatics.
The UIM H2O Nations Cup is a new approach to the spectacular sport of single-seater inshore circuit racing, placing the emphasis on team participation and country success rather than that of individual driver ability and success.
The series launched in Singapore’s magnificent Marina Bay in 2011 and is an affordable way for teams and drivers to compete internationally, giving countries the opportunity to introduce and develop up-and-coming talented young drivers. The boats are owned and managed by H2O Racing at their headquarters in Abu Dhabi and leased-out to teams.
