F2 class period 2019 the last powerboat World Championship is underway in the capital Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Today we run free practice and qualifying sessions.

The morning free practice lap times improved in the exercise progresses. The engine worked well, propellers were tested and verailtiin. A lot of fast laps were, although 18 other competitor being on the track at the same time, intact turns of driving is often a challenge.

The first time with the afternoon Q1:in, first 20 ajettettiin minutes to all the competitors at the same time. Good laps and at the end of the time I was in the results 6:th. So, the next Q2 continued in the competition after the short break. The following 15 minutes were drove with 15 competitor group. Also, this nicely towards the short-listed Q3, the resulting 8:the shining. Q3:I left in the round its own third, in reverse order taking.
