British veterans, Richard Carr and Paul Sinclair, join P1 with new Skater 399
RaceteamSkater UK pilots Richard Carr and Paul Sinclair are to race a brand new Skater 399 powered by Chief engines and Arneson surface drives, in the 2007 Powerboat P1 World Championship.
The boat, currently under construction in carbon/Kevlar epoxy composite at the Skater HQ in Douglas, Michigan, is the first all-British entry in Evolution, a class traditionally dominated by the top Italian teams. The new challengers for the P1 title are one of the most experienced racing teams in international powerboating with countless years of offshore racing know-how from Class III to Class I. Team sponsors and boat livery are still to be announced.
