Powerboat Racing

Rumors swirl that 2020 0–700 European Championship might be awarded to the deadly course at Traben…

Drivers across Europe are clearly not happy since the course has a deadly history and has claimed the lives of some of the biggest names in the sport across Europe as its victims. Discussion on Facebook this morning notes that it’s not official and urges drivers to stay calm until the official dates are released. Nonetheless, it caused a stir on social media as drivers speculate whether or not this might happen.
