ThunderCat Racing returns to Newquay
12:00pm Sunday 16th September 2012 in News
The thrills and spills of ThunderCat Racing return to Watergate Bay on September 15 and 16..
The event is rounds seven and eight of the RYA National Championship, with two man teams from across the globe battling through the surf for that all important title.
Born in South Africa over 20 years ago, ThunderCat Racing is billed as the ultimate in inflatable boat racing.
The series is made up of two classes, with new comers encouraged to join the ‘Stock’ out of the box class where minor modifications are permitted.
Equally competitive is the ‘Pro-stock’ class where competitors can increase engine capacity to push speeds in excess of 60mph!
Competition in both classes is extremely tight, keep an eye out for these front runners over the weekend.
With only a few points between the top runners, Team Ahmad Tea and Team Wales are battling for their championship in Stock Class and Microlink PC and Peters & May Racing in ProStock.
Team Peters and May are definately a team to watch after recently brinning home a silver medal from the World Championship held in Norway last month.
Fiona Pascoe, head of ThunderCat Racing UK was extremely pleased with the success of the previous event held earlier in the year and is looking forward to coming back.
She said: “The reception we received from Watergate Bay has been absolutely fantastic … it’s about getting bigger and better, we are also looking forward to coming back to Cornwall to Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth on the October 5-7."
