This looks kinda interesting.
Guaranteed 10 yr homologation, decent bottom line price tag.
Anyone know anything - I'm almost tempted to book in for one of their "track days".

Maybe I can enlighten some of you, we found our first "victim" to try the new SL90 yestereday, although Alan races a Ferrari F355B as a pastime, he absolutely loved the boat,; so much so, that he now intends to buy one.
Lagoona Park has been chosen as a venue as it is nearer to the south coast/West of England than any other circuit currently being used.
We have many people showing an interest in participating, so we wish to continue this trend; the RYA are actively invloved with this venture as it gives an invaluable insight to the sport and hopefully will create a whole new batch of drivers.

Don't panic....The RYA are on-side, and want to improve the well-being of the sport.

There is no weight limit, - if you can get into the cockpit, - you fit!
Seriously though, virtually all circuit boats were made with cockpits so small that they were unhealthy, I designed my cockpits to be "one size fits all", with plenty of width; I also dropped the floor by 6" to allow for taller drivers.
Weight is not a problem, as the hull has lots of lift.
You are all welcome to have a look/test.

One size fits all? Either matts going to need some extra padding around his hips to stay in the seat or I am going to need a MASSIVE shoe horn!

Although getting out again might be tricky - are you much of a gymnast?
