But are there still two "unlimited" classes? Or will Bud, CRC, Cintron and CMS now be racing heads up with Geico, Aqua Mania, and JBS? I sure hope so because that would be some awesome racing.

The piston boats now have the "option" to choose the class and race a long course with the Unlimited boats (geico,warbird,aqua,jbs) or they can stay in the "piston extreme" and race each other on a short course. (Less laps , thanks RB)

The actual course will be the same but the boat will go a longer distance / more laps.

Team Geico will use there T-55's to set speed records when team owner gives the go !!
Looking forward to an great season.
Good to hear. Best of luck to you guys, I know the Mystic has not been an easy project.

Thank you,
However it has been no big deal at all.
My guys are very good, and this one will be ready to race in a total of 8 weeks in the shop.
We will have it up and running for the big NEW Geico TV commercial that they will be filming on the 8th of Jan.
Happy Holidays

May we have a visual please ....
