A black helicopter said there has been a few meetings about it

I think a few people on this forum don't fully understand the Black Helicopter theory.

Still, it won't be the first time someone grasps hold of the wrong end of the stick, with all their might.

Whatever, it's very interesting that FPT have decided to continue to get involved in powerboat racing again after their successes in the RB08 and at Cowes last year. They obviously think there is some mileage here for their Marine Engine division which can only be good for our sport providing other manufacturer’s follow and now Martini have joined forces this could be a very powerful combination. I know Suzuki is showing great interest in the Round Ireland Race as well as Cummins so maybe, just maybe, interest is beginning to stir and others will come on board.

Well I guess it will depend how fair the rules appear to be from the various manufacturers point of view Mike, won't it.
