Das neue Jahr startet mit einem Knall in Sachen „Sponsorenwechsel“. Matteo Iachino, PWA Slalom Welmeister 2016 und Vize-Weltmeister der vergangenen Saison, verstärkt mit sofortiger Wirkung das Slalom Team von Severne Sails.
Matteo Iachino: „I’m really happy to be joining the Severne team. It’s never easy to leave the old way for the new. But after I had the chance to try the new sails I felt convinced with their performance and see them being the next winning step forward. Having talked with Ben Severne for the first time I could feel he really wants to build the fastest sails and he really wants to work hard towards this goal. Having a whole team fully focused on developing something different to win is probably the best feeling you could have when you’re racing at a World Cup level. I’ve already been working with Gonzalo Costa Hoevel a lot during the board testing for starboard and I’m happy to start working with him on the sails as well. All of these factors together pushed me toward the decision of joining this team for the upcoming races. I’m confident we will have a special season ahead! “
Ben Severne: “It’s a privilege to have Matteo riding our sails. There’s lots of inspiration to build faster engines to power his future results. Really excited to have him involved.”
Wir freuen uns den Italiener mit dem MACH1 zu sehen und wünschen „Happy New Year“.
