F1H2O Nations Cup

About H2O Nations Cup


What is H2O Nations Cup?

International Ordinary Races sanctioned by the National Authorities of the Countries where the race will be organised. The overall winning Nation will be determined by the sum of the 3 best results out of the 4 scored within 2 races by the 2 boat teams representing the Country.


What is the origin of such format?

We got the idea when watching a round of A1 car racing event. The format is applicable to powerboating where we can gather the best drivers from all over the world through their NA and have them competing with identical boats and engines.


Who are the Stakeholders?

- All National Authorities that decide to organise one or more events in their own Countries.

- IDEA Marketing Sa, Promoter of F1 H2O in the UIM (since 1984 we are active with F1 powerboat). Our Company has created a team dedicated to the development of the NC H2o.

- All National Authorities who register a Team to our events. Idea Marketing shall deal exclusively with the NA, no individual registration will be accepted, all drivers must be entered by their NA. Each team shall consist of :

  • - 2 drivers + 1 optional reserve driver
  • - 1 Team Manager
  • - 1 or 2 Radiomen
  • - 2 helpers per boat
