Who is racing?

As the season is approaching - just wondering who is actually going to be racing?

For a starters Matt and I will be racing the C-18 cat, with optimax XS 200. Don't know what name the boat will be under this year.

Looking forward to the Nationals and Worlds in Italy.

Adam

We will be racing R66 in the Formula 200 and Rib Championships, I understand the other BananaShark will be raced by Andy Tremalow in the same classes?

This is part of the Formula 200 class - really anything with upto 200hp outboard.

There will still be seperate sub-sections to the class such as 3C (old 2 litre), F1 RIBs (was F2 last year) and a class for others such as the old XR2 powered OCR boats and Phantoms, Marshans etc. This last section has so far been called 'production'.

Thus there will be overall line honours for Formula 200 - which could be from any of the above sub sections. This is what the public will see - hopefully one race with a lot of boats.

However there will still be points awarded to the seperate sub-sections for championships.

Hope this all makes sense!

There should be some news from the newly formed steering committee soon as to the final rules etc.

Adam

Also - we are hoping it will give production boats the chance to race at National venues such as Torquay!

More details to follow re. licences and boat paperwork etc.
