Hopefully the event will grow...that's the real deal. The clock doesn't lie.

Problem is its called a "race" so no insurance.

I love the blending of old school looks with just enough modern cues to make it look new and exciting! Obviously the steps are working perfect, now I have a new favorite "next" boat! Maybe a pair of 600hp diesels for Island hopping!
I bet a pair of 480hp Yanmars and ASD-8's would be in the 78-80mph range...also check out the 480hp Cummins NXT package. I think the 600's will be to much weight and vibration..unless its the souped up version of the 480hp..

Obviously that's where it needed to be, it's just that you normally don't see the first step that far forward. Boat runs great, and after more dial-in it should see success in P1.

I agree, the Pantera guys work hard and deserve it.

That Pantera sure is sweet looking; can't wait to see how it runs.
I seem to remember a slow old straight hull Tiger winning this class in the 08 run... one sec. let me walk across the room and look at the trophy and plaque..... Yep it won avg speed of a whopping 63 mph...

It was a Formula and This is what happened to it.

A P1 Yanmar/Arneson Hustler did 90mph on Coniston Water at record week a couple of years ago - what is the speed limit now?????

Is that why the bows are painted orange?

The class limit in Supersport is 90 MPH this year. Last year it was 85 MPH.
