Jimmy Shane and the Graham Trucking hydroplane team raced to victory in the Oryx Cup World Championship final on Doha Bay, Qatar, Tuesday afternoon.

The final capped three days of racing in Qatar, with Jon Zimmerman in the Jones Racing boat taking second place and Steve David in Oh Boy! Oberto lapping both Mark Evans (FormulaBoats.com) and Ryan Mallow (Miss Fox Plumbing) to place third, despite running a penalty lap.

David was penalized a lap before the start for making a premature move to take the inside line.

"I couldn't ask for anything more," said Shane, who didn't have a full-time H1 ride until 18 months ago. "I will be a father for the first time in 3 ½ months' time, and to win here in Qatar two times in less than two months is a superb start to the year for me."

Kip Brown in the Spirit of Qatar was forced out of the race before the start with engine problems. "I think we salted up the engine," he said.
