This Might Be The Wildest Boat Race On Earth | Red Bull Dinghy Derby 2016

► CLICK to watch Formula 1 Racing in the snow!
All over the world, the humble little dinghy boat is the safe and simple introduction to boating for millions of people. Not in the town of Renmark, on the banks of South Australia's Murray River, however. There, in the otherwise sleepy town of just 8,000 souls, they like to strap souped-up outboard engines to their little dinghies and then race them at speeds of up to 80kph in a race that since 1981 has grown a deserved reputation as one of the fastest and wildest events on water, the Riverland Dinghy Derby.

Experience the world of Red Bull Motorsports like you have never seen it before. With the best motorsport videos on the web and original series, prepare for your “stoke factor” to be at an all time high.
