Parsonage back in Negotiator after crash

Chris Parsonage will return to front-line action in Negotiator at the Egyptian Grand Prix in Porto Marina on Saturday, 25 October, for only his second start of the season after crashing out of the first race in Qatar back in March.

But, with his regular driver, 2005 World Champion Bard Eker, unavailable, Parsonage has drafted in the services of the experienced American throttleman, Billy Moore, to take the sticks in Egypt with team boss Parsonage switching to driving duties - his first time behind the wheel for two years.

The return of Negotiator means that four out of the ten boats lining up in Porto Marina will be running V8 power-plants; Negotiator and Qatar 95 with Sterlings and Spirit of Spain and Jotun with the Mercury-Class 1. And although Parsonage and his team’s world title aspirations ended in Doha, the likelihood is that they will be in the mix in the fight for the Middle East Championship and could well play a role in the outcome of the World Championship, if they can take points away from any of the title contenders.
