PROFILE

ERIK STARK is back with the team he made his debut with in 2012 and one of the sports rising stars, enjoying some success in his relatively short but exciting F1H2O career.

The 28-year-old from Sweden is a four time F2 World Champion and made the transition into F1H2O with seamless ease making his debut in 2012 then full time from 2014 taking his first podium in China. Two more podiums followed in 2015 but his season was interrupted by a crash and subsequent hand injury. But he returned and rounded out his year taking his first pole position in Sharjah, finishing fourth and sixth overall in the standings, his best championship finish.

He started his racing career aged 12 in the Swedish S-250 class and won, becoming the F4-S Nordic Champion in 2006 and was the Swedish T-400 title holder before heading to F2.
