I'm in.. I will run the Avanti, but if anyone interested, and have some motors to put in the old Formula, the Formula may be "borrowed".
The 272 has Merc. 350's with 300HP Gill headers, each but, really needs a good refreshing or just new motors. I been thinking about it anyway and schange to counter rotating set. I will pay fot the hardware but I need some help getting it ready. (if anyone interested)..

There have been some e-mails with the question confusion on the entry fee.....It is $1,000 if we recieve it before the June 1st....it then goes to $2,500 after that date. A little incentive for the procrastinators.

Starting slots are based on entry form and fee date rec'd.

Old racers get together is being handled by Brownie. It will be on Friday night (June 20th) after the Bimini race is over.

He spoke to me today and has a great plan going....not to be missed by anyone who would like to meet the real pioneers of this sport. Same locale as Gilly's wake.

Don't want to get the list going again, but a lot of famous racing names are coming.

More info to follow as we get closer.

Thanks Larry. I will call you on Monday.
I would really like to do the race with the Ole' Formula, but the way it is.. it's ok for the weekends,, no way for a 50+ mile run on open seas.
And thanks again for the MTI ride.

Okay....this should be the start of a new week......When everybody hits the site from their work place......let's start getting a count on who is stepping up!!

Pantera said they were in....what are you bringing Jo and Pepe?


We have some old classics and a lot of inquiry from the poker run guys......let's decide guys..... and say if you are coming....when your buddies see you are definitely in, they will want to come too.

Here is a little something to spark your interest....enjoy.
