Chris Davies

Chris DaviesI first met Guido back in 1992 at the UIM F.1 Grand Prix of France wich was held  in Chalon –sur- Saone and I could see all his successes as a driver.When some people look at F. 1 powerboat racing they often try and compare it with F. 1 motor racing. In reality they bare very little resemblance, although you can often see similarities in the people involved in both sports.During my career as a photographer, I have been fortunate enough to shoot in both and wh..

Gianfranco Casnati

Gianfranco CasnatiSometimes words cannot fully express our feelings, because emotion can’t always be explained. Each one lives then in his own way, like that race at Milan Idroscalo in 1992, when I saw the catamaran, with Guido Cappellini inside, flying like a dead leaf blown by the wind. A few moments before, I had just shouted: “Come on, go win!”. I felt so bad, but I suddenly ran to the paddock where Guido had been carried on a stretcher and I saw him still and su..

Raffaele Chiulli

Raffaele ChiulliAs Presidente of UIM, I strongly wanted Guido to be included in the “Hall of Fame” of world powerboat racing, because I believe that his successes  and his sport results, with ten titles won in the highest Inshore series, represent excellence in this sport. Excellence that then Cappellini was able to extend beyond his career as a driver, establishing himself as a boatbuilder, as a Team manager and a coach. He has put his great experience and know-how at..

Diego Basso

Diego BassoWhat about Guido… 10 times  UIM World Champion F.1, 3 IUM World Championship F.1 as Team manager of the Abu Dhabi Team…and he is already working for the fourth title, but not only: he is the fatest driver in the world: his record (256,02 km/h), obtained in 2006 is unbeated.I remember, as Castrol Italia manager, when I met him , in 1993, the year of his first world title,: a young man always smiling, a few words, frank, of substance, and above all, of great c..

Loris Capirossi

Loris CapirossiI have known Guido for over twenty years, and it is fun, because we are similar. We have the same passions:  speed, sea, motor sports and we have shared many adventures.  He’s a great friend: we  often see and call eachother. I admire  him very much, because he is a fighter and he never throws himself back, He was so like a driver, and he is like that in life. He has the rare ability to remain calm in difficult situation: like when, years ago, we wer..

Renato Molinari

Renato MolinariI knew Guido when he was a child who came to learn the trade in our boatyard. His father and mine were close friends, as much as we are  and it is been like this for both of us for all our lives. Guido is undoubtedly the best powerboating driver I’ve ever met, and he is a great Team Manager too. Nowaday, he wins  World championship, because he is able to manage the whole organization and  has a clear team strategy: he worked hard to become a good builder ..

Giampaolo Montavoci

Giampaolo MontavociGuido Cappellini left the F.1 Powerboating circuit while he was the  World Champion: this is not common, at all! We became boat mates when he  decided to drive an offshore hull, and I have the chance to know him better.A lot of people said to  me he was not an easy person, and they were right!I am not an easy person too, and I was scared it should be difficult to establish and maintain a relation with him, but I must admit Guido was a discovery for m..

Paolo Ciabatti

Paolo CiabattiI first met Guido by pure coincidence in Moscow at the end of August 1997. I was there for business and Guido and his team were in Russia for a race, staying in the same hotel as mine, so I could not resist and introduced myself as a motor sport fan who knew Guido only by his reputation (at that time he had already won four consecutive world titles in F1): he was very friendly with me and we had a few drinks together, speaking about our common passion for racin..

Vincenzo Iaconianni

Vincenzo IaconianniI first meet Guido in 1977, while performing  a go-kart race, only later on we realized our future would be in the powerboating world. Although we both ran nto smaller categories, and in F.1, I’ve always been thinking of Guido as an extraordinary driver, as a matter of fact he managed to win 10 world titles, during  the “golden age” of powerboating, when his competitors were such champions as John Hill, the two Seebold, senior and junior, Jonatha..
