Rumour of new Rules & Classes for P1

Apparently, after last weekends fiasco, P1 is looking at various changes for next season.

The rumour is that another 2 classes will be introduced, on the basis that Ribs & outboards are to be banned from supersport.

One class would be for ribs & the other would be between supersport & the new rib class apparently.

Anyone got any views on the subject?

In my opinion its about time P1 looked at the rules, its silly when the results are decided in a room either hours or days after the race. Results should be decided on the water in my opinion.

How about one class for the Italians, and another for the rest of the world?

I have been looking at P1 for a while now, in conjunction with a client, but have to say the current rules are a major concern and probably enough to put our plans on hold for the time being.

Some things are really good about P1 - but rules / classes need looking at. Somehow the purity of racing just seems a bit too diluted for me.

You need something like V24 then.

Well a great start would be to apply the existing rules in a consistent manner and treat them as rules and not just guidelines.

Watching from a distance its really sad to see a certain team which have contributed to the popularity of the racing class, being 'hung out to dry' by the organisers. Certainly not the sort of actions which are likely to encourage other teams into the class.

If you want to see more about how P1 use the rules and the problems look at the Buzzi Bullet 2 V P1 thread.
Shame when there is more time with problems with the rules than time on the water.

Would love to race the class if it was open design - but I can hardly race someone elses design!

I think a class built around the power supply / drive system would be a good thing for the sport....

Don't think I would be too popular turning up with 3C mono and 300+ Volvo horsepower!

Just think it's a shame that there is no longer a bigger class than 3C as we have lost 4 litre etc.

Probably have about the same power as the Italian 2 litre boats.
