The Team Manager
Guido Cappellini has been leading the Abu Dhabi Powerboat Team since 2015. He has just won 6 world championship in the UIM F. 1 and F. 2.
Guido’s career as a team manager has already started, when in 2015 he received an invitation from the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi, HH. Dr. Sheick Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to become the manager of the Inshore teams of the Abu Dhabi Team – which take part at the world championships F.1 and F.2 – succeeding Mr Scott Gillman.
From that day, he moved with his family to the United Arab Emirates and reorganized the Abu Dhabi Team, taking care of the Inshore teams of F. 1 (in the meantime named World Championship FH2O) and of F.2. He brought with him the Dac team: Attilio Donzelli, Giacomino Curti, his cousin Denis and revolutionized the management of the team, exalting the talents of the already established drivers and making young riders grow, including some new drivers from the United Arab Emirates.
Regarding the conquered world titles, his road map is impressive, similar to when he was the driver: the Abu Dhabi Team won three Team World Championships F. 1 (2015, 1016 and 2018), a world driver’s title F 2 in 2017 with Rashed al Qemzi and two world driver’s title F.1: in 2017 with Alex Carella and in 2018 with Shaun Torrente.
In 2019 July, the Abu Dhabi Team conquered the World crown in Endurance Shaun Torrente, Rashed Al Qemzi, Rashed Al Tayer and Tullio Abbate jr, became World Champions in Augustow (Poland).
A total of 7 world crowns in just 4 years and half!
In the 2018 world championship, the Abu Dhabi team has also set a record, bringing three drivers to the first three places in the world: the world champion Shaun Torrente (USA) and to the honored places Erik Stark (SWE) and Thani Al Qemzi (UAE).
Stratospheric result which cannot be repeated because the new 2019 regulation provides the possibility of deploying just two drivers per team.
As a previous Team Manager, Guido had had an experience with the Russian team New Star, with whom he won the 24 hours of Rouen in 2015, success that was repeated the following year with the Abu Dhabi Team.
The success in the most classic Endurance race was repeated in 2019: on May, 1 in Rouen there was the victory of Abu Dhabi Team, with the drivers Shaun Torrente, Rashed Al Qemzi , Rashed Al Tayer and Tullio Abbate jr., who ended the 24 Hours with 836 laps completed! In the 3rd place arrived the other crew of the Abu Dhabi Team, thanks to the drivers Majed Al Mansoor, Mohamed Al Mehairbi Rashed Al Remeithi and Faled Al Mansoori. On the Necko Lake (Augustow, Poland), , in July, he drivers of Abu Dhabi Team #35 conquered the UIM Endurance World Title. In second place, the other Abu Dhabi Team #36.
