No matter who "utters" the word checkmate, it is ultimately the fans and the real racers who lose. This soap opera is a tournament of clowns, if one boat wins the other is cheating, shouldn't even the thought of that be taken care of by the OSS techs? After all the are known for there Eliot Ness untouchability. And to quote one of there officials "penalties will be swift and hard". As I see it, if you go to watch a boxing match and there is only one fighter in the ring, he is not the loser in any sense of the word, the guy who didnt show is. All the excuses in the world of marketablity, and fan base do not change my opinion. A) OL is afraid of Fountain and B) They are traitors to American Boat racing. I'll even add a C) If Reggie is cheating, catch him, prove it and stop him, I would think more of OL then I do now, Oh and the B.S. about only racing with 2 boats? isn't that how they won the nationals and worlds last year?
Peace Out, Louie

[QUOTE=Scott B;2114945]As they said, they dont want to spend the season racing against ONE boat.. There's no point in that, hell it's boring after a while.. QUOTE]

Why do you think Donzi doesn't race anymore?? For that reason exactly.

Damn shame...... Destin was very promising for OSS... Now this..... Can't ya'll just get along and go racing......


BTW, it would be nice to see UIM hold a race here in the states and make it a true world competition. It would be the olympics of boat racing. Someone refresh my memory as to why we here in the US call our championships the "worlds" or why we have the "world series"...

animalhouse,
You can't be serious about it that it has anything to do with money with your team.
They bring two coaches, support semi, sport cars (one could pay for what I spend in two seasons) , motorcycles, 5-10 employees/ friends. One pilot and private plane for multiple trips to accomadate different peoples schedules and some customers.
Don't worry my hats off if I could afford to play like that I would but don't make this a financial issue. Those two have more money than I will ever see and they deserve it.
They decided to race Europe and the OSS when I raced with them last year and they already started boat 2 for that reason.
But you know what It doesn't matter anymore maybe that can win the OSS worlds by themselves.

Four years ago, American Power Boat Association Offshore revamped its rules to make the sport more competitive and to provide close, “deck to deck” racing so the races were more exciting for fans.

The name Allweiss sure is easier to say these days!

BH,
I have to say you are right about that.
F2 almost 30 boats in Sarasota and even when we upgraded to SVL I think a lot of great boats.
Brett
Who knows what you do.
I was just talking to a guy that pretty much hit the nail on the head. Skater and Fountain raised the bar so high in SV that everyone is either quitting or running P2. The other manufacuers are at least 5mph slower with the current specs.

Whatever it is, it looks like it's only 10 minutes long. Typical offshore coverage.

Real open ocean racing is not a put down of any other type of racing going on today....it is simply a return to the roots of the sport.

For those who would ike to try it, this may be your vehicle to a whole new set of challenges.
