The Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF) has now gained official approval from the sport’s governing body, the UIM, to host the final round of the ABRA Unlimited Hydroplane World Championship, which will now be known as the Oryx Cup — UIM World Championship. The second race of its kind to take place outside the US will run from November 19 to 21 in Doha. It will be organised jointly by the QMSF, under the presidency of Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al Thani, and the American Boat Racing Association (ABRA). Three titles will be up for grabs at what promises to be a thrilling race weekend in Qatar.
