KEY WEST: The two Victory Team boats ran a commendable race to snatch podium spots at the end of Race One at the 38th Annual Key West World Championships held in Key West, Florida.

Not off to the best of starts, the two Victory Team boats chased down outright leader Wake Effects from the start to finally claim the next two spots in their first-ever foray into the North American powerboat racing scene.

Participating in the Superboat Unlimited category, Salem Al Adidi teamed up with John Tomlinson to bring in Victory 33 in second place even as Eisa Al Ali and multiple world champion Steve Curtis in Victory 3 came in third to complete the podium standings.

The race course consisted of a challenging 45 miles lap running through Key West Harbour and at times even touching high speeds of more than 225 kph due to the smooth water on the outside.

But with a slow start to worry about, Victory 33 and Victory 3 gradually started inching and gaining ground on leader Wake Effects. But the Americans had too much of a power advantage as they finished at least 20 seconds clear of the chasing Victory Team pair of boats.
