Sports medicine physician Dr. Vincenzo Tota whom Audi relies on in motorsport contested his very own race on Monday before the DTM event at Zandvoort. In a 700-hp powerboat, together with three teammates, he set a record in traveling around the southern tip of Italy in the 9-meter class. The quartet needed 32 hours, 46 minutes and 15 seconds, including a refueling stop in Roccella Ionica, for the distance from Monte Carlo to Venice. “The four of us took turns at the helm. Each shift lasted about two hours,” reported the traumatologist and surgeon. “Still, there was no way to get any sleep because those who weren’t steering had to take care of navigating the boat. An unforgettable experience. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!”
