One of my most successful racers; much of it down to the driving and preparation of Neil Holmes and the navigation of Jim Cox. In 1989 she took the 4 litre World, European, National and UKOBA Championships and notched up 15 Class wins. In 1990, by substituting 2.4 litre EFI power heads on her Mercury outboards she also took the Class 2 World Championship and set the World Class record at 115.13 mph. This must be a unique achievement. She had covered more than 4000 miles of racing and went on to cover many more racing in the Middle East.
