10.03.10 Powerboat P1 World Championship in Yalta
The 2010 Powerboat P1 World Championship will launch in Yalta(May 7-9), replacing Croatia as the first event of the upcoming season.

London-based rights holder, Powerboat P1 Management Ltd, have been forced to make a late change to the schedule after local promoter AM Info Media failed to meet a deadline to deliver the required level of funding to stage the event. AM Info Media had been awarded a three year agreement last year by Powerboat P1 to stage the Croatia Grand Prix of the Sea in Split.

Powerboat P1 Chief Operating Officer, Robert Wicks, said: УAM Info Media had good intentions but unfortunately have missed the deadline. A great deal of effort had gone into the planning for this event, but in the end we were left with no alternative but to remove Croatia from the calendar. The opportunity to open the season in the Ukraine on 7 May is one that we are very much looking forward to given the countryТs impressive powerboating heritage and passion for Powerboat P1.

With more than 20 teams confirmed, the 2010 P1 World Championship promises to be one of the most exciting in Powerboat P1Тs history.
 
27.08.08 Yalta Rally 2008
Time of the event: September 12-14, 2008.
Place of the event: city of Yalta, highways near Ay-Petri Mountain and Alushta town.
Conception: Yalta PRIME rally is a European Rally Cup Event. Ukraine's best rally and foreign teams are to challenge themselves on mountain serpentine narrow meandering roads.

One of the most spectacular and demanding events, Yalta Rally made an eagerly-awaited debut on the European Rally Cups and has quickly proved to be popular, with a compact series of well-organized, high-speed asphalt stages through the Crimea mountains and plains around the cities of Yalta and Alushta.

The opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the Parc Ferme take place in the quay of the luxury resort city of Yalta. The event's stages are mostly located in the hilly countryside.
The rally is famous for its narrow asphalt mountain roads.

The high-altitude stages make for spectacular viewing with a mixture of mountain peaks and flat valleys. As the engines struggle to breathe in the thin air and suffer a drop in power of about 20 percents.

Rally drivers must thread the thin line between the towering cliffs on one side and the gut-wrenching drops on the other. This event is run on roads which never seem to stop surprising. It's definitely a rally for the asphalt specialists!

This can provide a real challenge for the drivers as they need to balance the desire to push with the need to avoid the numerous small stones and rocks that litter the roadside. Cornering technique comes into its own on the dramatic, mountainous places of the Crimea.

To succeed in Yalta, you need a sublime combination of commitment, fingertip feel and lightning reactions. Because the ability to drive at speed without wrecking your car on the rocky roads is one of the keys to success here.

About 200 000 inhabitants and guests of Yalta will be able to observe the breathtaking events. Millions of television viewers owing to live broadcast will have the opportunity to watch the rally start and finish. Representatives of the leading mass media of Ukraine Russia, as well as foreign journalists are invited to the competition.
