When in 2009 the Knokke based 2B1 Racing Team started their debut in offshore powerboat racing both Frank Hemelaer and Pierre Colpin had a great season ending 3rd overall in the Evo class. Despite major engine failure and some other setbacks last season they repeated this great performance with some impressive rounds to say the least.
In 2011 Pierre doesn’t make it a secret: the Belgian 2B1 Racing team, sponsored by amongst others Furnibo and ING is going for nothing less than the World Championship title. Powerboating.be held a podcast with Pierre talking about their Mercury powered Fountain Lightning powerboat, changes in their crew, the testruns and the 2011 competitors.
