Breitling Racing Team Strikes out of the Super Eight in Rovinj, Croatia

Rovinj, Croatia. April 13th 2014:

On start up for Super 8, the Breitling Racing Team had a technical problem with the communication system on the MXS. With minutes to go the team were resolving the problem, but unfortunately we had a Prop-Strike. The running prop touched the ground and the damage sustained means it will have to be replaced before the next round in Malaysia.

Nigel Lamb is very disappointed after such a promising run in the Top 12. He felt very comfortable in the track and was dealing well with the difficult westerly winds that have caught out many of the other competitors.

Nigel will finish 8th overall and still take a World Championship point forward.
The team is confident that everything can be sorted before the third round in Asia.
