24th of December 2008, Peru, World Festival 2008 - FE & FW Junior ,Youth & Masters World Championship

Hot news

00:11 | News from UK -Richard Jones (GBR32), Ian Jones (no other than the Chairman himself - GBR183) and yours truly Xavier Ferlet (GBR451) are off to Peru on Xmas day for the Youth & Masters Formula Worlds.

A quick glance at the entry list reveals it’s no short of talent so there should be plenty of hot racing action out there.

In the Youths, Pablo Barrichina (ESP16) and Maciek Rutkowski (POL23) will be eager to show that the speed they demonstrated at this year’s international events (Poland & Portugal) was no fluke. There are also a few celebrities: Connor Baxter (US333 - Formula Experience), Zane Shweizer (USA52) - who is related to the inventor of the original Windsurfer I think.
We shouldn’t forget the French! Pierre Mortefon (FRA14) is also on the list along with quite a few compatriots. I’ve seen Pierre at the international events and he is well trained by coach Stephane Kraus.
In the Masters, Anders Loken (NOR12) is also on list. My experience from Estonia last year is that Norwegians can be devastatingly fast so he should be treated with respect too!

Yours Truly is currently in Cadiz for Formula training with friend Fernando (ESP71). This is really good preparation for the Worlds. Hopefully, that will pay off to give the other lads some stiff competition!

We’ll keep you posted with preparation for the event and hot racing action: Go GBR riders - Go!
