TEAM AMSOIL BEATS ITS OWN ENDURANCE RECORD FROM MIAMI TO BIMINI AND BACK AND WINS ANOTHER 1ST PLACE IN SUNNY ISLES
The AMSOIL Offshore Racing Team set the Official Endurance Record sanctioned by OSS in 2008 in the Cat Lite Class from Miami, Florida to Bimini, Bahamas and back. This year, the team returned with a mission of defending and beating its own record in the 106 mile long race. On Friday, June 12th, Team AMSOIL #77 did just that by running the endurance event in 59 minutes and 40 seconds, which was a little over 5 minutes faster than last year’s record. The official average speed of the Team was recorded at 106.8174 MPH.
To further show the endurance and reliability afforded by using AMSOIL lubricants, Team AMSOIL participated in Saturday’s Thunderboat Rally from Sunny Isles Beach to Key Largo and back. The Team received a lot of recognition from other participants and fans as a front runner in the long range event.
The boat was entered in the Sunny Isles Offshore Challenge on Sunday. Team AMSOIL won the Cat Lite class easily in the wind blown Atlantic Ocean waters in front of fans on Beach and in the row of mega hotels along the front straightaway. The start-finish line was located at the famous Trump International Beach Resort Hotel.
During the 3 day event, over 350 race miles were logged on the Team AMSOIL Skater with no problems of any kind.
Joining Team AMSOIL for the weekend as an honorary team member was the current Miss Florida USA, Anastagia Pierre. We are grateful for Anastagia’s support of the AMSOIL Offshore Racing Team and for the sport of offshore racing.
Team AMSOIL captured virtually every title possible in the Cat Lite Class during the 2008 racing season. The Team is the current OPA Cat Lite High Points Champion, OSS National and High Points Cat Lite Champion, and SBI Super Cat World Champion. Team AMSOIL is also the holder of the OSS World Endurance record for Miami to Bimini and back, and captured the POPRA World Kilo Record in its class with an official average speed of 131.981mph.
