Friday, 29 March, DAMMAM (Saudi Arabia): Adverse weather conditions continue to frustrate and dictate the time schedule at the UIM F1H2O World Championship season-opener in Dammam.
For the second day in a row, the strong winds of over 30km/h and rough seas have disrupted any on-water activity at this week’s Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia, with race officials confirming that today’s Rebellion Official Qualifying is postponed. “It is a very frustrating situation we are facing but our ultimate responsibility is the safety of the drivers. We expect the conditions to calm over the next 24hrs and we are provisionally looking to reschedule qualifying to tomorrow,” said Luis Ribeiro, UIM Race Director.
A drivers briefing will take place at 1030hrs [local] with a revised schedule to be issued later today.
