Sharjah: The Sharjah F1H20 Team have announced the extension of driver Rusty Wyatt’s contract for multiple years.

Rusty expressed his immense happiness to continue with the Sharjah Team and is proud to be wearing their colors and representing them on various occasions in the future.

He emphasized that the team feels like his second family since he joined and hopes to achieve great success together in the upcoming races.

Rusty highlighted that the Sharjah Team will be manufacturing their own F1H2O boats.

He also stated that the best is yet to come with the goal of achieving top positions and competing strongly in every race. Ahmed Al Hosani, General Manager of Sharjah International Marine Sports Club, and Scott Gillman, Team Manager, are very excited to have Rusty with the team for more years.

Sharjah has also signed an agreement to host a round of the UIM F1H2O World Championship for three more years.

The agreement was signed between the Sharjah delegation and H2O Racing during the F1H2O Regione Sardegna Grand Prix of Italy.

“We are delighted to confirm Sharjah as a prestigious partner of the UIM F1H2O World Championship, hosting the traditional final round of the Championship for years to come,” said Nicolo di San Germano, H2O Founder.

“We are very happy to be here with our partner in Sardegna,” said Khalid Al Midfa. “We are looking forward to further development and progress together as partners in the F1H2O World Championship.”

“Of course, Sharjah has a team, Abu Dhabi has a team, and Dubai has the Victory Team; three teams from the UAE almost represent one-third of all the teams in F1H2O.”

“We are very happy to collaborate and to look at new ways to develop our business, our market, and our destination Sharjah through media exposure. Looking forward to having you and your smile in Sharjah.”

Meanwhile, this year’s UIM F1H2O World Championship is heating and is becoming one of the most exciting for several years with a handful of drivers in with a shout of claiming the Drivers’ Championship and as many teams still in contention to win the UIM F1H2O Teams’ World Championship.

The Sharjah Team and Team Vietnam are currently locked together on 94 points and have a 14-point cushion over Stromoy Racing with the Victory Team a further eight adrift in fourth. Team Sweden (now Vietnam) dominated the series last season and the once all-conquering Team Abu Dhabi has made a slow start and holds seventh in the points’ standings behind the China CTIC Team and the Red Devil-SMC F1 Team.

No one team have been dominant this season with the Sharjah Team’s rookie Wyatt snatching a stunning win on the final lap from Stark and Jonas Andersson in Indonesia, the Victory Team’s Erik Stark controlling the pace in Vietnam and Wyatt coming out on top again at the recent Regione Sardegna Grand Prix of Italy in Olbia.

Both Andersson of Team Vietnam and Peter Morin of the China CTIC Team have delivered consistent performances in each of the races, while Stromoy Racing’s Bartak Marszalek and Marit Stromoy have improved markedly with Marit now really getting to grips with the new Mercury V8 four-stroke engine in her DAC. What this season has shown is that a championship that was once dominated by Team Abu Dhabi (Teams’ champions in 2012 and 2017-2022) is now wide open with drivers and boat performance more evenly matched than ever before.
