More results here. http://www.powerboating.be/content/view/570/197/

Seems strange though that there is no mention anywhere of the Nor-Tech SuperSport boat stuffing and disintegrating.

Sadly, not much of a result for the new Pantera either.

Wow I have not heard about this too....
After the accident seems a bad run for the Nor-Tech boat...
But the boat did not start for both the Super Sport races. so this should have happened on Firday. or on the Saturday trials

I read an interview with the driver and the nose dipped and exploded. Like hitting a wall in 85 Mph. Sounds like a bad design or layup.

I dont think one can argue the design as much.
The Nor-tech was doing well as of Malta race 3. But on round 4 on Shelley Jory website she says that they moved some weight inorder to get some better performance of the boat. On round 4 the boat spun and we saw how that ended. Now as someone is saying the boat stuffed and disintegrated....
Over a certain speed a boat is designed with a certain balance, and may be they played a bit too much with this....

This one?

I don't know how the boat was laid up but this isn't the first time that boats that are highly regarded in the States have come apart in UK and European waters.

Yes I remember the race in Malta in 2008, all Skaters in Evolution where coming to pieces, while the EURO Metamarine, Chaudron, Positglione Al&Al and Outerlimits fared quite well.
Cigarette was also delaminating in the rought sea Tunisia race a month later, but had no problems in Malta.

The story in the Dailyecho is a bit sad seeing such a good performing team demoted with the recent incidents...
I hope a fast healthy recovery for both physical and mental strenghts....
