X-Cats – Our Recent Wins and A Look Back!
It’s been a great season so far! As a lot of you may well know, it’s not always easy to race a boat through ferocious waters and with precision.
It takes a lot of skills and a fair amount of guts, which is why we’re really pleased with all of our drivers.
We’ve had a good set of wins recently, and it’s proven to be a pretty successful season, so we’re going to be taking a look at some of our top performers, and also looking into some of our recent histories too, in a celebration of past and current success.
Our Recent Wins
Recently, there’s been some really hard-working people in our group who do deserve a mention of some kind. For example, the team of Abu Dhabi 4 comprised of Shaun Torrente and Faleh Almansoori are currently top of the leaderboard for the 2018 UIM XCAT World Championship, with a fantastic 213 total points to their name, so well done!
These two guys may not have had the best start, but they quickly shot up to the top of the leaderboard. As they netted a third place in the race taking place in Shanghai, it was clear to us all that they weren’t going to settle for anything less than the best. Both of them are cool and collected pilots who always remain calm under pressure.
So, Who is the X-Cat Group?
Moving away from the recent successes of some of our most excellent pilots for just a second, let’s look for a minute at who we are and how we came to be.
The X-Cat group is part of UIM, a regulatory body set up in 1922 for the government of all power boating activities. We’re really proud to be connected to such a well-recognized and long lasting group, which has helped to launch the careers of some of the most famous drivers. The X-Cat Groups Facebook Profile is here.
As for us in particular, we’re a group who has a variety of talented drivers. Whether it’s the exceptionally skilled Abu Dhabi 4 team, who are currently at the top, to other fantastic teams like Team Australia and the Raheeb Team. We’re really proud of all the teams we work with, as we know that they’re all exceptional drivers that give it their all no matter what the race may throw at them.
Overall, the season so far has been one of the best in a long time, and we’re really excited to see where it goes from here. We know that all our drivers give it their best shot, and we’re so proud of Shaun and Faleh for being at the top of the board right now.
Boat racing doesn’t quite get the same kind of coverage that some of the more significant sports get, which we think is rubbish! There’s no doubt that boat racing is just as exciting and offers many twists, turns and challenges for you to consider. We know that we’re often on the edge of our seats when the action starts!
