Man that looked like fun. Some serious chine walking going on. Swimming and bumping seems like a regular part of those races. Kind of reminds me of F2 racing in '98-'00 when there was 15 or twenty boats in a class. I'm jealous that looks like good racing to me.

WOW! That is some good racing! I haven't seen anything close to that since the 2002 F1 racing. Too bad F1 fell apart and one-design racing didn't take off like that over here.

I did a search and this thread popped up from 2002. People basically making fun of it. Funny how times change!

onesickpantera, what do you think the co pilot does? Is he acting like a co pilot like in the movie TopGun looking out for incoming. Some serious bump and grinding going on.

Thats like dirt bike racing, get the hole shot and hold your line and you win. I bet you could pick one of those boats up. How simple can you get? A motor you can basically pin for days, no tabs, just seat of the pants racing. I love the trips and stuffs, and the ejections, what a riot....and pounding that was.....
