Sheikh Hassan announced that the team will attempt to break propeller speed records in Spirt of Qatar.

How about a 'Shootout' record?

Good Stuff!

Looking forward to seeing Sheikh Hassan and the Spirit of Qatar race against the Miss Geico Team and hopefully some other Teams as well. It's long over due in the Extreme/Turbine Class.

Default Turbine extreme class

It sounds like good news-I wish them luck.the only problem with putting T-55's in the boat is that it's going to force any remaining turbine team to do so as well or there's going to be 2 turbine classes with only 1 boat running in them.anyway-it sounds good but I see a lot of crying and problems ahead for the turbine "class"

Is Steve Curtis going to Throttle it? He doesn't let off the fuel sticks very often He will be your best competition yet. I grew up with him (while he was living here), His determination to win is Unmatched.
