Richard Carr returns to powerboating with Steve Curtis

Hi all,

I hope everything is well.

I have some exciting news (well at least I think it is!) I will be returning to the sport later this year to take part in the Round Ireland Venture World Cup alongside Steve Curtis.

Richard Carr set to return to powerboat racing alongside Steve Curtis | Richard Carr Racing

It promises to be an excellent event and I hope to see some of you in Ireland later this year.

Best,

Richard

Good effort!
Any more information about your boat and what power she will have?

On the Venture site the pic was listed as a stock image ? I have read since that it is a tin boat.

...only that the shot I posted was of a tin boat. Not sure what was meant by stock photo though on the site. Curious - will have to check it out!
