Nail-biting first round for Pickfords Powerboat

An exciting weekend of racing for the overseas opener of this year’s P1 SuperStock Championship! Nine powerboats battled it out along the shores of Aalborg, Denmark in the first of four rounds in the 2017 season.

Helmed for the first time by experienced race siblings Glynn and Lee Norvall, the Pickfords powerboat had a hard fight to keep pace with the weekend’s highest scoring teams.

Scraping through the Saturday qualifier, Team Pickfords managed two 3rd-place finishes underneath glorious sunshine on day one.

The low-scoring qualifier left the Norvalls scrambling for a place in the Sunday Grand Final. Thankfully the brothers stormed ahead in the Plate, coming first and earning their spot in the concluding races.

Stiff competition left the boys in fifth place overall, sneaking into the top half of the table in front of Team Inverclyde on equal points.

The P1 fleet now head back to British shores ahead of Round 2 in Greenock over the 24 – 25 June weekend. Can team Pickfords notch up the points and secure a place in the top 3? Watch this space to find out.
