“WAR ON WATER” COMES TO PENRITH - http://www.formulapowerboats.com.au

World class talent at a national level returns to the Sydney International Regatta Centre, near Penrith, for the first time in two years, as the Formula Powerboats Grand Prix series prepares to deliver its Grand Finale round over the weekend of August 28 and 29. With over 50 teams expected to be in attendance, this will be the largest fleet of competitors ever to come together for a Formula Powerbo...at Event.

This final round has drawn boats from all over Australia, from as far north as Townsville to down south from Melbourne, they all will be in Penrith to secure the National Championship.

Cranebrook local and Formula 1 champion in 2008, Shane Vella, stands poised to continue his unbroken run of podium finishes however eyes will be on Damien McKenzie after his astonishing 2010 season. Piloting his 5 metre long craft at speeds reaching 250 kmh, McKenzie has led the series from Round 1 at Taree and is determined to finish the year in the same form.

The Formula 2 category has seen Port Macquarie’s Michael Page virtually unstoppable, cleansweeping most rounds including the event at his home town recently. The battle for second comes down to Tim Bollins and Matt Smith with a question mark over Smith and Page racing at Penrith due to a collision and damage to their boats at Port Macquarie.

The Formula 3 boats, effectively the development category at this level, will also offer a tight finish with young Corey Davoll biting at the heels of the veteran Geoff Bollins.

Support for the weekend will come in the form of the Formula Futures, the category for junior racers and intended to be the entry level to Formula Powerboat racing plus the Sports Monos,

The Futures are ranged across the age group of 8 to 16 and Bailey Cave has demonstrated this year what it takes to be handpicked for the next step while the Sports Monos are potentially the most exciting Vee shaped hull racing category in the country, with the speed of the boats seemingly moments away from disaster. Hawkesbury based pilot, 20 year Tim Fenwick found this out the hard way when he was swamped and knocked cold by a wall of water from another competitor at the last round.

With plenty of off track displays and promotions, an affordable adults price for pit entry and the promise of championship deciding racing, there’s good reason why the Formula Powerboats motto of “War On The Water” will deliver for the Grand Finale round over the last weekend of August.
