Default Video: Teague/AMSOIL GN77 Parker 300 Enduro

Hello Everyone,

While not exactly "offshore racing," we competed in the 300 mile Parker Enduro last weekend on the Colorado River between California and Arizona. We captured a class win and a 7th overall. We were racing a 20.5' Grand National Inboard Endurance V-Drive with one of our TCM 1200 Carb engines.

Its a great race with lots of different styles of equipment and a 24' size limit. I wanted to share this video with you guys, since I think any performance boater can appreciate the thrill of running an extreme piece of equipment. Enjoy the footage and feel free to ask questions!

For reference, we ran about 100 MPH down the straights with about a 110 MPH top speed for the day. The boat could run 130 with the correct prop setup.

John Teague

Most people have no idea how tough that race is on both the drivers and the equipment. I think that video does a pretty good job of showing just how rough it can get. And BTW, my hat's off to you for doing to without driving gloves!

Nice Video!

Congrat's and thanks for posting it for us to see. Like it was said before the camera work shows the enormous physical demand on the racer and the stresses put on the boat and equipment. I also liked listening to the engine sounds.

It is a blast but you sure feel like you got your ass kicked for a few days afterwards. Makes me miss the canopy and 5 points!!
