But would it work in the UK?
Not so sure it will even work in the U.S.
Oss Features New Racer's Program In Biloxi
OSS announces program to help new racers get started
Do you have the burning desire to race offshore powerboats? Well here's your chance. The Offshore Super Series is now offering a program titled "Racing with the Pros". This is a hands on experience that is being offered to serious high performance boaters that want to make the transition to racing but may not know how to go about it. This program is not for people that just want to go for a ride in a race boat but have no intention of racing. This program is an introduction to racing to potential racers.
Here's what is being offered.
You will be assigned to a team for a single race event. Only one person, per race, per team.
Arrive in Biloxi or any calm water race site no later than Thursday of race weekend.
On Friday you will register as an OSS Racer and complete all forms.
On Friday you will go through the dunker training...twice.
On Friday you will attend the drivers meeting at 5pm with your team.
On Saturday during practice you will be able to steer or throttle if you are in a Vee Lite. If you are in an 850 Supercharged boat, you might be sitting in the back seat, depending upon your present skill and prior boat ownership experience.
Depending on how your practice laps go, you might be invited to race in the Saturday afternoon Pro/Am race with your new team mates.
On Sunday you can help your team get ready to race and then cheer them on to a win.
The cost of this experience is worked out between you and your new team owner. Typically it would be about $500 plus your cost of travel.
If this is something of interest to you and you'd like to learn how to make the transition into racing, give OSS a call and we'll make it happen.
I thought that having more patience was a result of my getting older. Turns out that I just don't give a sh*t.
