ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Monday, June 28, 2010 – St Petersburg, Russia welcomes back their local power boating racing hero Stanislav Kourtsenovsky. The popular 39 year old pilot is a native of St Petersburg and his grandparents live, just a stones throw from the River Neva race circuit.
Stanislav started his F1 career in 2000 racing in Team Kalnciems and has over the last decade enjoyed mixed results, his best being in 2008 as partner to Guido Cappellini in the colours of Tamoil.
Stan made a brief appearance in Finland during 2009 but a promised sponsorship never materialised and he failed to make the line-up in his home event. However, 2010 will see Kourtsenovsky on the grid in St Petersburg and he hopes to compete in the rest of the 2010 season.
