The win seals back-to-back victories in the UIM E1 World Championship, the world’s first all-electric raceboat series, for the quarterback’s team as it triumphed across a weekend of breathtaking racing on the iconic waters of Venice.

Brady, who has been in the city to support his team throughout the race weekend, celebrated with his pilots, Sam Coleman and Emma Kimiläinen in the Venetian sunshine following the win.  

The seven-time Superbowl champion, who continues his habit of winning, Tom Brady said: “It was an amazing team effort, Sam and Emma were incredible. I’m just so proud of the team and everything they're doing, we got off to a great start a few months ago in Jeddah, and we’ve just got to keep it going from here. This is something really special.”

Emma Kimiläinen, one of the GP's standout pilots who brought home the win, said: “That was just mega. To win with Tom Brady watching on just felt incredible. There was so much happening during the race, but I’ve had the speed all weekend, so I just went out there and did my own thing. It’s Mother’s Day today and my daughter is my star. It’s really special to show her that you can work hard and chase your dreams and to compete with these incredible people, is just awesome.”

Sam Coleman added: “It's been a weekend of blood, sweat and tears! The racing has been so competitive – it has been a real rollercoaster. My parents and wife made the trip out here to watch the race, I’m proud we could deliver for them and for Tom Brady too.”

Co-Team Principal, Ben King said, “It’s an unbelievable feeling winning here in Venice. Of course, there were high expectations after securing the win in Jeddah, but we used that pressure to deliver, and it was amazing to do so with Tom here this weekend. There were definitely a lot of challenges, but the whole team did an incredible job. Now we look ahead and put our focus on the next race in Puerto Banus.”

Co-Team Principal, Joe Sturdy concluded, “We made the right strategy calls, and we were able to maximise the performance of the RaceBird throughout the weekend. I’m proud of the team for remaining positive after a tricky qualifying, and for also making a great comeback despite the penalties. Finally, it felt incredible to make Tom proud. We’ve worked so hard as a team, and it really paid off this weekend.”

The debut electric racing championship, which sees nine teams battle it out on the water reaching speeds in excess of 50 knots (92kph / 57 mph), will race in iconic coastal cities across the world including Monaco, Puerto Banus and Hong Kong.

The Championship continues in Puerto Banus, Marbella on 1-2 June.
