🏁🏁 March Long Weekend 2019 🏁🏁

Australia’s Fastest F1’s are in Town March 9 & 10
Leary vs Coles, Bailey vs Davoll and Smith.
YES, you read it right, Five F1’s battling it out on the Derwent.

Palmer vs Palmer, Jago vs Robinson and Patterson all running Blown Alcohol V8 engines and looking to put down some seriously fast lap times.

When it comes to the highly sort after Riverland Trophy, will it be the might of the BAD boats or will it be the agility of the F1’s that takes home the prize.

To top it all off we have a massive field of 25hp boats chasing the title of the Australian 25hp Championship. 
Combine this with the regular racing classes of State boats and you have an event that you don’t want to miss!

Get yourself trackside, Granton 9th & 10th March.
Racing begins at 10.30am
Entry $25pp for either day or $35pp for the two days

This weekend sees the running of the Granton Spectacular.
This year we have assembled 5x BAD (Blown Alchohol Displacement) pumping out around 2000hp each, and 5x F1 Tunnel boats pushing around 400hp each riding on a cushion of air.
All 10 boats are well capable of north of 225km/h while sucking in liters of Methanol (Alcohol) at a stupid rate with torque figures that will have mother earth twisting on her axis.

Add to that its the Australian 25hp class title and a full field of support races including Jnrs.
