H2H hovercraft racing introduced
The H2H Races stands for Head 2 Head hovercraft racing and is a new series developed by Hovercraft Team Friuli. It was the first time an event was organised at international level with elimination type races. The event was designed around a Head to head race concept with a double elimination system. This meant that races would be able to continue until they had been eliminated twice.Until now, all hovercraft race events had been traditional racing formats with crafts racing in formula classes. By having knock out races, a new race starts every 5 minutes, it guarantees excitement for the public.
