A Pembrokeshire boat racer has given former NFL superstar Tom Brady something to celebrate - after winning in Venice.

Team Brady celebrated a triumphant victory at the E1 Venice GP, leading the series in back-to-back victories.

Seven-timer Superbowl champ Tom Brady, the team owner, was seen exuberating joy with his pilots Sam Coleman from Saundersfoot and Emma Kimiläinen amid the victory.

Commending an indomitable team effort, Mr Brady said: "It was an amazing team effort, Sam and Emma were incredible.

"I’m just so proud of the team and everything they're doing, we got off to a great start a few months ago in Jeddah, and we’ve just got to keep it going from here.

"This is something really special."

Sam Coleman, shared: "It's been a weekend of blood, sweat and tears!

"The racing has been so competitive – it has been a real rollercoaster.

"My parents and wife made the trip out here to watch the race, I’m proud we could deliver for them and for Tom Brady too."

Co-pilot Emma Kimiläinen, one of the GP's standout pilots, voiced her delight and relief following the race.

She said: "That was just mega.

"To win with Tom Brady watching on just felt incredible. There was so much happening during the race, but I've had the speed all weekend, so I just went out there and did my own thing.

"It’s Mother’s Day today and my daughter is my star.

"It’s really special to show her that you can work hard and chase your dreams and to compete with these incredible people, is just awesome."

Under the vibrant Venetian sunshine, the team basked in their victory, sharing their collective pride at their achievement.

Co-team principal, Ben King said: "It’s an unbelievable feeling winning here in Venice. Of course, there were high expectations after securing the win in Jeddah, but we used that pressure to deliver."

"Now we look ahead and put our focus on the next race in Puerto Banus."

Joe Sturdy, co-team principal echoed King's sentiments.

He said: "We made the right strategy calls, and we were able to maximise the performance of the RaceBird throughout the weekend.

"Finally, it felt incredible to make Tom proud.

"We’ve worked so hard as a team, and it really paid off this weekend."

The UIM E1 World Championship, the first of its kind featuring all-electric race boats, sees nine teams hurtle over ocean waves at more than 50 knots (57 mph). The race series continues its global circuit with the next race scheduled in Puerto Banus, Marbella on June 1-2.

The iconic coastal cities of Monaco, Puerto Banus, and Hong Kong are a few among the selected race locations.
