Saturday, 3 June, PORTO CESAREO (Italy): Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq left it late before hitting the front to take victory in Moto 1 at the UIM-ABP Aquabike Grand Prix of Italy.
The defending Runabout GP1 World Champion trailed pole sitter James Bushell and Lars Akerblom from the start and needed seven laps before passing Akerblom to move in to second place and then set his sights on the leader.
His opportunity came when the lead duo hit a gaggle of backmarkers and Bushell struggled to cut his way through, with Abdulrazzaq making the telling pass on lap 13 and going on to take the chequered flag and win by over 15 seconds.
Akerblom lost ground but held on to take third place with Jeremy Perez moving up from being in ninth place at the end of lap one to take fourth ahead of Johan Johanson and Markus schick.
