Powerboating – High Octane Recovery

High Octane Recovery – Offshore Powerboat Racing

In 2012, Mission Motorsport ran the 2010 winning boat ‘Premier Cru’ in the P1 Superstock Championship, the fastest growing marine motorsport series in the world. It’s also one of the most competitive forms of motorsport, with international recognition and coverage on Sky Sports.

Racing on water is completely different to racing on asphalt. The thrill is different too. The course is constantly changing beneath you which makes for spectacularly close and unpredictable racing.  Our first power boaters are already qualified, coached by our friend, mentor and series champion John Wilson, and 8 times World Champion Neil Holmes.

Powerboat experiences in the Superstock race boat, ZapKats and RIBs were provided for personnel affected by military operations.  Courses for Royal Yachting Association qualifications in powerboat handling, engine maintenance and navigation at up to Instructor level are already being delivered for servicemen and veterans.  We also ran family experience events, seeing the social side as important to our blokes and girls too.
