"We are extremely happy to be back in San Nazzaro - said Lavinia Sanzovo Cavallero Sr. Vice President of H2O Racing - We all remember the huge crowd of enthusiastic supporters of Powerboat on the banks of the Po River last year and it was therefore natural for us not only to come back here but to double F1H2O presence in this location so meanful for Powerboat world.
