The famous exotic car maker took to the Tasman Sea for the first time in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
Using their engineering skill and the very accomplished leadership of captain Giovanni Soldini they were able to capture fourth place in the very competitive race. The high seas had many yachts broken well before the finish line was in sight however the international crew stayed strong in one of the most grueling events on the international sailing calendar. The Italian VOR 70 covered the 628-mile distance between Australia and Tasmania at an impressive 2 days, 22 hours, 54 minutes, 33 seconds.
Line honors went to the American 100’ Comanche in a time of 2 days, 8 hours, 58 minutes, 30 seconds. She was followed into Hobart by the Australian yacht Ragamuffin 100 (2 days, 19 hours, 47 minutes, 30 seconds) and the American craft Rambler 88 (2 days, 19 hours, 51 minutes, 42seconds).
