We have a race local to us in Plymouth (SW England) and the start is a little noisy to say the least - the engines are V12 Lamborghinis, and I believe the boats are good for around 160mph with the right props. The class is called UIM Class 1, and they race in the UK, Dubai and Europe, the other popular class right now is P1, which is for open boats and smaller engines and budgets!
Randy Scism Throttled for Chris Parsonage this past year. The boats name is "Negotiator". Not sure who was in it at that time but what a ride. WOW!

An inspiring video, thanks Sharkey! Love the audio.

..international event indeed... we should probly organize our own back yard first. I'm guess the decision makers in that group just shake their heads when they look over the pond at us.

If I recall Augie, didn't some of them cross the pond to race in Atlantic City for the World Championships?

I wonder what it would take to get them back here for a week of racing for a true International event?
