Default Make Money Racing APBA One Design Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Make Money Racing

There is no need to scroll down for the small print because there isn't any... this is for real, and it is cash. It's all part of the 2003 Reindl Powerboats One Design Series leasing program for the 2003 Great Lakes Silver Cup Series. One Design racers have a chance to win a $25,000 first place prize check made possible by local sponsors American Express Financial Group, H2Operformance.com, Propellers Online.com, Premier Performance Interiors, POC Inc., WEBN radio, and a sponsor to be named at the Cincinnati Offshore Grand Prix June 14-15, 2003. Add that to the larger prize purse made possible at every race by GLSCS title sponsor Formula Powerboats, and the winning racer could walk away with over $33,000 cash. The cost of the lease is a reduced $3500 per race ($24,500 on the current 7 race schedule – only $12,250 per person for the entire season). “These are all cash awards, no contingency funds – you can go purchase a new car, put it in the bank, do whatever you want with it – somebody could end up making $8000 racing this series,” said Chris Reindl of the funds. Imagine becoming a professional offshore powerboat racer and coming out financially ahead at the end of the season. Reindl Powerboats manufactures the exotic, sexy and unforgettable Ocke Mannerfelt designed “Bat boat.” Each boat is available for lease to individuals, amateur and pro, who want to race in a professional racing venue such as the American Powerboat Association.

So what's the catch? There really isn't one, (this is about as small as the print will get). Requirements include; leasing a Reindl One Design Series boat, providing a driver and/or throttleman team of up to four people, and being the best of the best. Oh yeah, one more thing, just because you have your diploma doesn't mean school is over... Reindl also includes for each new One Design racer an intense, full day race school where you will not only learn how to handle the “bat boat,” but where you will also learn valuable safety measures and racing rules. Reindl Powerboats takes care of the rest for you, it is that simple. RPB will trailer the boat to each race site, crew included. They also maintain every leased boat, ensuring each is in top racing form. All of the boats run identical, hence the name One Design, so its driver against driver and throttleman against throttleman.

Get ready for a fantastic 2003 racing season, especially when you participate in the Great Lakes Silver Cup Series. Check out the Great Lakes Silver Cup Series schedule at: www.silvercupseries.com.

If you want to make money racing or just want to find out more information about the Reindl Powerboats leasing program, sponsorship opportunities and purchase information please contact Chris Reindl at (513) 706-3199, or [email protected] and check out the website at: www.reindlpowerboats.com.

its down to $3500 per race???? Is that per person (7000 total) or for the boat so 350 total if so that is pretty f-ing cheap to race.

$3500 per race for the GLSCS Series and $4500 per race for the Pro Series.

Basically it boils down to $1750 per person per race.

$2500 prize purse per GLSCS Race.

Additional $25,000 1st place prize check for the winner of the GLSCS Series - all cash.

Allan,

You sure are right about it not being a practice run, where else can you race boats and come out ahead at the end of the day?

Mr. Offshore

Great Program, hopefully somebody will take advantage of it.

For all those that need a place to start, this is it you wont ruin your family boat yet be able to compete in a national level class.
Once you race once you will be addicted to the rush, it is a great starting point.

Pete,

Not only a great way to get started, but a great way to test yourself in identical equipment against some of the best racers in the world.

Look at all the teams like Team Virgin (former One Design National and World Champions - led to F2 World and National Champs & 2nd place at Worlds in Super Cat), Fisher Racing (current One Design National Champion and currently runs the
F2-22 Donzi), Jim Arvis and Mountain Dew (too many titles to list here), Audacity Racing (F2-21 Donzi), Twisted Styx (One of the top F2 teams), Harwich Concrete Block (another top F2 Team), Patriot Offshore (F1 Team), Boomer Hukari and Erick Treadwell (Ran F2 in the worlds and will be running F2 this year), Fountain Direct.com (Former F1 team will be racing this year in a new boat this year), Granville of Warlock, Scott Utah (F2 racer), and many more I am sure I am missing.

TLee

TLee,
It is also a great way for those intrested in being part of the crew as well, it opens a variety of doors for those willing to work hard and be part of a team.
