2012 Classic Powerboat Rally

I am pleased to say we have finalised arrangements for this year's rally and have published the entry form at http://www.powerboatrally.com/ so sign up soon to secure your place.

This does now mean I have got to finish installing my new engine soon in order to allow plenty of time for testing.

Paul
