The APIOS Racing Team continues a successful run in racing competitions. This time it is the grand finale of the Alpe Adria Jet Ski Tour where Tihomir Kotarski took gold in the first race of the Runabout GP3 class and took 1st place in the overall standings, behind the German Philip Salobir and Pole Patryk Kolenda.
“I practically joined the Alpe Adria Tour last year, but I have already fulfilled my wish. I wanted to win the race in Vir and celebrate the class title on the island. Now I have succeeded in that”, said the member of the APIOS Racing Team, Tihomir Kotarski, who is also one of the two most famous Vir weekenders who performed on the Alpe Adria Tour.
After races in Fažana, Koprivnica, Pöchlarn, Austria and Jedovnice, Czech Republic, the dynamic finals on the island of Vir brought together the best European jet ski pilots for the fifth year in a row, who once again staged a high-octane sea spectacle.
