Default Where is Pantera in F1?

First of all, I am not bashing, I'm just curious. I love Pantera boats and they have a great reputaion for big water performance.

Are there any Pantera boats running in the F1 class? It seems like Warlock has a very strong presence in F1, along with Velocity, Activator, Kryptonite, etc. But I haven't seen any Panteras.

Why?

Pantera has run occasionally in f-1 in the APBA and I believe the
owners of the company ran one in SBI last year. A Pantera was
running APBA in P-4 last year. Maybe a little to heavy to get
the speed required for f-1. Someone out there can give more accurate details I'm sure.

I think there is a 35'(F2-71) that runs F2 in the SBI called Survior and 1 28' (P5-14) that run in a divisional, one called Carraba's Team Bluthe.

It looks like they were racing F1 often last year from their website.

Looks like they are still racing the SBI circuit. Too bad there's no TV coverage;

Jo from Pantera ran both APBA/SBI last year with the all black F1..but has since sold it..

Believe he's building an F2 now...

The P5 Carrabbas is a great running boat..

Damn bodyshot, you have all the answers I'm looking for! It looked like Pantera had run SBI at the opener this year. At least according to the SBI website. That would be one sweet ass boat to buy!

He's building an F2 for himself (throttles) and a certain board member (driver) to race next season.

Hey black Hawk,


We are working on our new 35 Survivor "twin stepped" to campaign next season.We will race the boat in Factory 2 class primarily with APBA and a few SBI.


We ran a F1 28 at the start of this season here in Miami SBI with the Dodge Viper motor but sold the boat right after the race .


I really enjoyed racing F1 last year and will most likely do it again in the near future.


Regards, JO - Panteraboats

Hey Jo,

Thanks for chiming in. I love watching the F1 class and I new you guys had raced in it a few times last year and did pretty well.

How come you sold the boat? And how did it run with that V-10?

Thanks,

Scott
