Arona (Italy), Sep 9 (IANS/WAM) UAE Boats dominated the fifth round of the UIM Skydive Dubai XCAT World Series as Fazza team started in pole position after a mighty battle out on the water.
Earlier Sunday, Arif Al Zaffain and Mohammed Al Marri were the only team to dip under the two minute 26 second mark - in their final lap during the Emaar Pole Position race, finishing in 2.25,81.
But top spot was far from a foregone conclusion with the lead switching hands between Fazza and their teammates Victory Team (Salem Al Adidi and Talib Al Sayed) on several occasions.
Victory Team started this afternoon's race (dubbed the European Grand Prix) in second position after recording a quickest lap of 2.26,23 with last week's Italian Grand Prix winners, Skydive Dubai (Jay Price and Rashid Al Tayer) in third with 2.26,48.
Meanwhile, claiming the all-important fourth spot was the Italian team, Six, with Matteo Nicolini and Tomaso Polli just edging out the Qatar Team on their fifth lap in 2.29,73.
