Boats not walls!!

Anyway I am racing in Portugal www.thundercatracing.co.uk never been in one so it could be quite fun - luckily it isn't in the surf although it does appeal - just not for learning!

Well I don't know how your boat runs and dont know much about how ours will run against the others........
So lets race on the water instead of in a forum!
Ill probably see you in the pits at some point and come and introduce myself.....
Good luck!
Maxim
