Three in a row!

Congratulations to Mark and Jason Walker (The Gringos) in winning their 3rd OCR National Championship in a row - they now have to win another 4 to beat Nick Barsch's record of 6 in a row (Ian Blacker stopped his run of wins by only a few points and then he came back to win again the following year!).

This is only the teams fourth year, so they won in their second season and haven't looked back since - We are pleased to be able to say that their BananaShark built Phantom 19 is in incredibly good condition for a four year old raceboat despite what they have done to it!
