Jim Dyke is a veteran of many years. He race in APBA years ago and has since been a hired gun for some of the UIM teams. Nice job. Similare to Randy Scizm (sp).

My cousin Edwardo Polli races for one of the teams.

Thank you for the info Ron.. I just found a few websites with info too.. He looks to be a cool guy...


I see this boat class is mostly out of the country racing correct? or not?..

Does he race any boats here in the US?.

Thanks again guys.

Default Here is the craft that Jim throttles for.

All the races are in foriegn countries. One of the most signifcant factors they don't run here is travel and $$$$

They used to have all their races on Speed vision along with the UIM F-1s.
