I will join Spirit of Norway!

The good news this week is that I will join the Spirit of Norway team. This season I will do the throttles, teaming up with Australian Tom Barry-Cotter in BRG racing's #2 boat.

Pål Virik Nilsen

Bjorn Rune Gjelsten will continue his successful partnership with Steve Curtis.

I am really looking forward to this challenge and getting the season started. The focus now is to prepare as good as possible before setting off to Athens and the first round of the Class-1 World Powerboat Championship.

I am also looking forward to meet the Barry-Cotter family from Australia who will play a major role in our team this year.
