Saturday, 24 August: H2O Racing has announced that the city of Xiamen in Fujian Province in south eastern China will host round 4 of the 2019 UIM F1H2O World Championship on 18-20 October, replacing the event scheduled to be held in Xiangyang in September.


The news sees the championship returning to Xiamen for the first time since 1997 for the 25th Grand Prix to be held in China as the sport marks its 14th consecutive year of racing in the People’s Republic.


Heading to Xiamen and into the second half of an already captivating season the battle for the drivers’ world title is evenly balanced following two enthralling Grand Prix in Portugal and France, with Team Abu Dhabi’s defending world champion Shaun Torrente and Team Amaravati’s Jonas Andersson each with a win apiece and a podium and separated by just three points, 35-32, Abu Dhabi’s Thani Al Qemzi in third place on 27 points.
