Thuraya

Any body know what happened to that awesome race boat Thuraya, last seen in about 2005/2006 racing in P1?

Had those awesome 2000hp petrol engines that made you whole body hum from about 500feet.

The pilot was Adriano Panatta, a tennis player from the 70s.

Does it still run? Do they still race it? Thundercats followed P1 around Europe I have seen this boat race in Malta, Portugal, Travelmunde to name a few places. Was always a firm fav with the crowd.

Thuraya are already several years that rests on the truck out of the yard.
I do not think there Panatta run again.
Maybe it's for sale.
