Offshore POWERBOAT Racing | SUPER BOAT Miss Geico Rolls Over | Sarasota Grand Prix 2019

SARASOTA GRAND PRIX 2019: Super Boats MISS GEICO and VICTORY crash and roll over at the Class One Powerboat Offshore Racing.

Class One Division is comprised of the biggest and fastest race boats in the world. All boats in the new division weigh 12,000 pounds and are up to 50 feet long, with identical twin turbo race engines sealed and governed by Mercury Racing to ensure fairness. Most are made of carbon, Kevlar and S-glass for high performance, and are equipped with F-16 jet canopies. Up to 1,200 horsepower and max speed of more than 160 mph. Such monster power needs a crew of 2 people – a driver who controls the boat’s steering and a throttleman responsible for operating the engines. Amazing, right? I can only imagine the adrenaline rush in the cockpit.
The focus was once again on the reigning 2018 and 11 times overall world champion MISS GEICO with driver James Sheppard and throttleman Steve Curtis. However TEAM VICTORY from Dubai driver Salem Al Adidi and throttleman Eisa Al Ali took the lead ahead of MISS GEICO and kept it until the end when, in a bizarre turn of events, both MISS GEICO and VICTORY boats rolled over within seconds of each other at the last turn during the final lap, awarding the Australian Team 222 OFFSHORE featuring driver Darren Nicholson and throttleman Giovanni Capitella (who had been in a third place position) the winner of the race. Luckily, nobody got injured.
Also participating in the Class One race were Team SCUDERIA CAZZANI Turbo, with driver Ed Smith and throttleman Serafino Cazzani, and LUCAS OIL Satcom Direct, with driver Jay Johnson and throttleman Nigel Hook.
As the Class One race was being conducted, two Vee Extreme boats were also in the process of racing: KNUCKLEHEAD INSTIGATOR, featuring driver Edward Smith and throttleman Anthony Smith, and HURRICANE OF AWESOMENESS, with driver Brit Lily and throttleman Kevin Smith. INSTIGATOR had been leading the race when the Class One accident occurred.

Offshore POWERBOAT Racing | Class ONE | VICTORY Team | Miss GEICO | 2019 Fort Myers Beach

MISS GEICO disappointed, VICTORY Team Dubai edged out the Aussies team 222 OFFSHORE in a tight contest to win the race of the most powerful SUPERBOATS in the world in Class ONE.

Roar Offshore Racing returned to Fort Myers after 15 years to provide a solid ending to the six-race American Power Boat Association Offshore Championship Series.

The race in Class One features six teams, the most for the season, which ran 12 laps. Two Vee Extreme teams ran 10 laps in the same race. The Victory Team fielded two 41-foot catamarans powered by Mercury Racing 1100 Comp engines for the first time this year, and they vied for top honors with the Australian team 222 OFFSHORE. Salem Al Adidi and Eisa Al Ali piloted the team’s primary boat Victory 3 to win the National Championship.

Running its own 41-foot Victory-built cat with 1,100-hp Mercury Racing engines, the 222 OFFSHORE team of driver Darren Nicholson and throttleman Giovanni Carpitella managed to get ahead of VICTORY 33 and chased VICTORY 3, where it made up ground on the outer section of the course but kept losing what it gained when it tackled the nearshore straightway. Despite several hard charges by 222 OFFSHORE that left it less than a boat length behind, VICTORY 3 team never gave up the lead and took the checkered flag just a few seconds ahead of the Aussies.

MISS GEICO raced for the first time after the crash in Sarasota in July but was clearly not ready to compete and trailed almost a full lap.

The INSTIGATOR by Knucklehead Racing team of owner/driver Ed Smith and throttleman Anthony Smith came into Fort Myers Beach with four Extreme-class wins. The TUG IT/LSB team, piloted by the driver Brit Lilly and throttleman Kevin Smith, came to the season finale with one Vee Extreme-class win. The two-big V-bottoms put on a show for the fans, with the Instigator team finishing ahead of Tug It for the win and the national title.
