To say that P1 hasn't thought out the balance of Safety and performance is ridiculous. They didn't overpower the boats and there were plenty of safety personnel on the racecourse. This is a strong model for enhanced safety programs and open boat racing.
Powerboat racing is dangerous. Period It takes a special type to put it on the line in a race boat. While I didn't know these two racers I suspect most of you would have really got on well with them had you met them personally. They love fast boats and so do you.

So ditch the arguments and leave your condolences and offer support for the fellow powerboat racer fighting for his life.

Well stated! These guys deserve respect and admiration for putting their lives on the line for the sport they love!

P-1 has not thought through the safety of these outboard powered garbage cans. Many people predicted these things were going to kill racers eventually. Too many people taking advantage of too many racers leading to too many deaths. It's disgraceful and so is this constant refrain of "these guys died doing what they loved, show some respect and shut up". Whatever. Sickening.

Any updates on Dan Whapple? I am assuming that no news is probably good news. I hope that he makes a speedy and full recovery.

Be safe out there!
