Never ever use "want to race" and "money matters" in the same sentence. They just don't go together........

Just like in amateur auto racing... it takes cubic inches and CUBIC DOLLARS... if you want to race.

Thumbs up ..

The best way to get started in offshore racing is to lease a one design boat from Chris Reindl for one or all of the races. It saves you the headache and hassle of owning and maintaining the boat and the boats are a blast to race. Give Chris a call at 513.706.3199 or call Josh at 216.233.8474. There is also some great info about the reindl one design class on www.H2Operformance.com

have you thought about the One Design class? i started about a year or so ago and it is one of the best ways to safely get into racing in a controled environment. the boats are fast and very stable. (rougher the water the better ) these things are an absolute blast to drive. Chris Reindl handles all the boats/registration/transportation/etc.... you can contact him at

cell- 513-706-3199

what part of the country are you in?

If you live in NY you might want to run with OPA. It's a grass roots series that will keep you close to home and the costs down. I know Chris has been wanting to run a bat boat at OPA races for some time now.

OPA 2004 Schedule:
Brick,NJ - June 26,27
Atlantic City,NJ - July 17,18
Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ - Aug. 12,13
L.I. / CONN. Area - Aug. 28,29
Cambridge, MD - Sept. 25,26
Delaware River Area - Oct. 9,10
Key West with SBI - Nov 14-21

See www.thejerseyboyz.com for more details. Make sure to join the mailing list so you get all the updates.
