Torrente Aims to Reclaim Lead in UIM F1H2O World Championship in China

Shaun Torrente, the defending UIM F1H2O World Champion with Team Abu Dhabi, is determined to get back on track for a fourth world title at the Grand Prix of Zhengzhou in China this weekend

Torrente, who won the race in China in 2018 and 2019 on his way to his first two world crowns, is looking to erase memories of his first-round disappointment in Indonesia.

Despite winning the opening Grand Prix of the season, Torrente was penalized for a jump start, handing a first-career victory to Polish driver Bartek Marszalek. However, Torrente is optimistic and confident about his chances in China, stating that his team is usually quick at new venues, as they were in Indonesia.

The defending champion has high expectations for three-time UIM F2 champion Rashed Al-Qemzi, who takes over in the Abu Dhabi 2 speedboat from his cousin, veteran Emirati driver Thani Al-Qemzi, who is unavailable for the trip to China. Torrente believes that Rashed is a talented and fast driver, who has been the team’s spare driver for the past few seasons and has raced F2 and endurance together with them.
