It looks like there’s going to be some extra work for Killian Bushe and Juan K on Ericcson Racing Team’s Volvo 70s. Apparently, ERT filed for redress after Juan’s keel design was ruled illegal, but the Jury let the decision and rule interpretation stand. We asked Ericcson what kind of impact this would have for the team’s schedule, considering it’s only a few months until the race start. “This is business as usual,” said Managing Director Richard Brisius. “It’s not a big drama for us.”Brisius also commented on his expectations for the next event: “We think that the speed differences in the next Volvo are going to be very small, especially when compared to the last race. There are some great designers working for the teams. We are very happy to be working with Juan – he is very innovative and incredibly enthusiastic.”He wouldn’t tell us just how much extra work this means for the team.
