Carpitella Set To Partner Bohinc In Turkey

Giovanni Carpitella, the current Class 3, 6-litre world speed record holder and one of the world’s top powerboaters, is set to join Hannes Bohinc in SNAV OSG for rounds three and four of the P1 World Championship in Istanbul next month.

With team principal and throttleman, Giancarlo Cangiano, expected to stay behind in Naples for the birth of his first child, Carpitella will race alongside Bohinc as the team looks to build on its Grand Prix win in Malta.

“We have not competed together before but Carpitella is a top powerboater and I am looking forward to racing with him,” confirms Bohinc, 2005 P1 World Champion. “We tested together in Malta and it was a good experience. Giovanni races up to 40 times a year in boats of all sizes. Nothing phases him and he reads the sea well.”
