It depends on what you want to do, uk formula dutre has a few junior classes. In ocr you can navigicte at 16 with written consent, not sure of the offshore min age. Or the circuit guys have a fantastic class started up. Contact pro rig on here. I know sam whittle does it. They are at stuartby with the boat practising with it alot. Good luck. Oh and I had better mention thundercats have junior's before I get lynched! Good luck. Paul

Being bias, my kids race in the UKFFORC series which has under 16 classes for offshore though as Paul says there is T/cats and circuit though I believe all series needs parental consent for under 18s.

The next UKFFORC event is in Eastbourne on July the 17-18 so you could pop along if you can and see what's happening.

Junior Circuit 9 years old 15hp speeds of around 40 mph

GT30 Circuit 14 years old if held a junior license for 2 years speeds around 55mph. At 16 you can enter directly after completing the training and qualifying club races.

WHat publicity and or coverage do these championships get, i mean how many people do follow these championships???

We are trying to form team, but we need sponsors, since we need to travel to and fro the country(Uk) of these events.

I hope you understand me.

Thanks and
