Platoon wins TP52 World Championship:
Scarlino, Italy (May 20, 2017) – Harm Müller-Spreer’s Platoon crew got the better of the five-time title holders Quantum Racing during an exciting winner takes all final day showdown to win the Rolex TP52 World Championship title for the first time.
Platoon’s seemingly unerring consistency across the challenging, hard-to-read conditions proved telling. Though they did not win a race, only once in eight contests did Platoon finish out of the top three, counting five second places. Third in 2008, losing out on the final day in Puerto Portals to finish third, this time the Platoon crew stayed super focused and closed out their first world title together.
