Torrente wins race at Sharjah season finale, Chiappe takes home world title.

Friday, 16 December, SHARJAH, (UAE): Shaun Torrente did everything he possibly could in his bid to win the world title with a superb victory in the UIM F1H2O Grand Prix of Sharjah, but it was the man who followed him across the finishing line, Philippe Chiappe, who is the 2016 UIM F1H2O World Champion, with third place going to Finland’s Sami Selio.

Today’s result gives Victory Team their first Grand Prix win in only their second season in the championship, with Torrente clinching a much-deserved runners-up slot in the driver’s championship and Victory taking third place behind CTIC F1 Shenzhen China and Mad-Croc Baba Racing in the teams championship.
