    Background: CERNOBBIO, LAKE COMO, ITALY

    Eddie Cheever, the promising young Formula One car driver from the United States, won the annual Villa D'Este powerboat race fro racing drivers at Cernobbio, Lake Como, Italy on September 5. The race is an opportunity for top Formula One drivers to compete with each other in off-shore motorboats. Cheever was awarded the Villa D'Este trophy by Joanna Villeneuve who died on the racing circuit this year. Her husband won the Lake Como event last year. Second to Cheever was Frenchman Alain Prost, regarded as a favourite to win the Italian Formula One Grand Prix at Monza shortly. Raoul Boesel, the South American driver in his first season of Formula One racing, came in third. The average speed of winner Cheever was 87.25 kilometres per hour.
