Racing set up..

Hi, just a shot in the dark but is there any racing set-up's going about for sale atm?, like a f2 2ltr or the 1.3 class?, even a mono hull?..cat or the like..? just something to get me into racing!, i'd love to be on the water for April!..but i'm a one man band sadly..so really has to be something that just needs a pilot!...any info would be great, many thanks Danny.
