And speaking of rumours....

I was told today that Chris Parsonage might be showing up for the Sunday basic with his boat.

That would be interesting.

I'm led to believe that's part of the plan.

Yep. Now if only we could convince Tony Dowley to bring the Nor-Tech up from France.

I heard at the weekend, that after shipping it to Norway (where Steve Curtis ran 155mph in it doing some local record) he has now sold it

Haven't spoken with Tony in a while but I think you're right.

I had a conversation with Big John from Express a couple of weeks ago. He was in Norway for the record attempt. Steve was on the throttles with Tony at the wheel. Seems they couldn't get any racing fuel so the Nor-Tech's engines were only bumped up to about 1000 hp each.

According to John, the boat ran 157 and the record there is 159. Seems awfully fast to me in an open boat.
