As the world focuses in on the impending monumental three way struggle for the 2014 UIM F1 H2O World Championship trophy, other drivers, who have had major success in Sharjah but are not in the championship hunt, have their own ideas of “spoiling the party” on Friday afternoon.
Meanwhile, drivers such as two-time World Champion Sami Seliö with the Mad-Croc Baba Racing Team just missing the points cut on the outside looking in, has a bit of revenge on his mind.
The driver from Helsinki blew away a shot at his third title a year ago leading in points coming in the event, only to make a mistake in qualifying with an accident and all but ending his dreams of a hat-trick of championships at the same time.
The 2007 and 2009 winner in Sharjah also has more pole positions than anyone in the races history with four and is looking for more on Thursday afternoon.
– I really like this place and I feel we have solved a few shortcomings we’ve had this year thus far and are ready to fight for pole on Thursday and then the outright victory on Friday.
– Just because we don’t have a chance for the outright title doesn’t mean I won’t be trying hard for my third win here and make a statement heading in 2015.
Many stories along with much drama as this dramatic followup to the 2014 championship all plays out on the Khaled Lagoon and the 15th Anniversary year of the Grand Prix of Sharjah on the world’s most difficult stage on water the UIM F1 H2O World Championship for powerboating.
