Can't be Patel, he would never do that to Pete from Skater. The Instigator boys just bought new motors for next year.

Kurt? Nah he'd sell Bandit first.

Stuart Hyaim???? He's got the bucks.

Joe Calabro???? Three times champ? Not too sure.

Come on Otto, give it up!!!!

No one considers any form of offshore racing as ametuer. Even SBI or PX class. At those speeds, you better be a pro.

Obviously, I agree. Again the reference to amateur was related to the inability to make a legitimate living and not to experience level or talent. I wish it was different!

In 1987 when I won my first open class race in NPBA I got a check for $1500 which was a huge 1st place purse. My wife looked at the check and asked how we were going to make any money in offshore racing. Otto

To everyone when I say amatuer I am in no way stating that they are any less then the others. They are not racing for the year end prize money and is not as controled by the sancationing body as far as engine's drives etc...
I should have phrased it a little different. I raced P2 for a year. I considered myself an amatuer and a rookie.
