I'm kidding. You're the best. I would do business with you on a handshake any day of the week. Keep it up buddy! Your quickly gaining notice with some big eyes in the marine industry.

I love you.

We watched the "accident" repeatedly at Skaterfest........ with some pretty savvy racing minds. The JP boat chopped (cut off) Jaws, then ran through Reverie's rooster tail 20' off her stern, before finally spearing Wood's boat. The JP boat never began to turn, never backed off, never took any evasive action. It was almost as if both guys were rooting around on the floor looking for a lost cel phone, or dialing around on an FM radio looking for a better music station. In short the other teams realized they were at a turn and the JP crew didn't.................This has to be the worst single piece of driving I've ever seen....and I've seen them all.

They should be beached until it's proven that they have developed some semblance of skills....Given that Campbell has been racing for over a decade.....the odds of those skills arriving anytime in the future are pretty slim. My advice to other racers...stay at least 50 yards away from these guys...at all cost and for God's sake don't break down in front of them.... Maybe JP can't see over the dash......................

Take it from someone who knows first hand T2X is right on the money. The scary thing is knowing what Campbell is willing to do and has already done to other Superboats in order to win!

JP's boat came out of no where on the inside before the crash in the turn. Clearly the throttlman screwed the pooch by not backing off, but how do you justify the ridiculously steep (inside) angle of approach into the corner? That is the fault of the driver, not the man on the sticks. It takes two to tango in separately controlled race boat.

Hey you guys I have a novel idea.... Instead of trying to get the thing for free, why not help Jeff out a bit and buy a copy. I tell ya you guys this footage is the best yet. He has been listening to the critisisms from people and has really made some great changes in his editing.

Jon
