I went in my brothers 2 seater press/demo boat a few years ago and the feeling of acceleration and G force on cornering is fantastic. If you ever get the chance of a ride go for it.

Sounds good in principle, but if the poor little F1 motor had to pull Chaos around as well as the driver, there'd be little or no 'acceleration' to speak of!...as for cornering 'G's, a structural failure would be almost unavoidable!

Obviously it would be OK with me on board.
