We are looking forward to another action packed season kicking off with the opening round in Downtown Wanganui. Although we have raced there before, this is the first time we are to run a full blown NZ F1 round on the river…10+ F1 boats on this narrow river should be quite the show for the TV coverage promised at this round.
Rotoiti will also be hosting the 50th running of the AE Baker Cup and expect to see possibly 1 or 2 Grand Prix Hydroplanes making the trip from Australia to compete for this prestigious Australasian trophy.
We are also excited about Lake Kaniere, Hokitika being added to the calendar this season (Easter weekend), making 2 of the 5 rounds close to home. Following is Cromwell on ANZAC weekend which is also the NZPBA Nationals, and DOUBLE POINTS for the NZ F1 Championship! We also hope to have both boats on the water this season, so anyone keen to try their hand at pit crewing for an F1 powerboat team are most welcome. Julian Stilwell
