racing

after having boats for fun i am thinking of starting to race them. getting rid of my sharp 19 and putting my engine xr2 250 on a phantom 18 that i have just got. what sort of saftey stuff will i need ? and does the boat need to be up to some sort of spec like seats fuel tank stuff like that . i did get told to leave my brains at home if i sterted to race but to be honest i thought i would need them as i think its not just about going flat out and not thinking it takes skill and thinking doesnt it

At Barrow you can race anything you want within reason. You will race in the super clubman class against boats much faster and probably a few thats slower than your P18.Basically it's handicap racing where you do a couple of timed laps to get your start place and then you get a staggered start and race against the clock.


have a look on http://www.wmbrc-racing.net/
