The tension is mounting as the Sunseeker Racing Team prepare for the European Endurance Championships in the Cowes-Torquay race tomorrow.

Over the next four days we will see the best of the best compete in the grand finale of the powerboat racing season. The Sunseeker XSR 2000 will take on the best endurance boats from around the world in home waters. Four races over four days, present the team with a real chance to secure the European Endurance Championship.

After their win in Poole two weeks ago (see picture insert), it is reported that preparations for this weekend have been going smoothly and hopes are running high for Sunseeker’s primary race crew of Peter Dredge and Ian Sanderson, who are both free of injury and the XSR 2000, in pre-event testing has shown its highest performance figures ever. The team say with a little luck and a little assistance from the British weather, the team will battle to “return the Sunseeker name truly to its racing heritage; more importantly its roots. Poole in Dorset, is the home of Sunseeker International, now the world’s most famous marine brand and one of the largest manufacturer’s in the world of luxury motoryachts and performance powerboats”.

The action begins tomorrow and if you are going to the event, keep a look out for the Sunseeker Team, who will be joined by our very own Will Stirling, Feature Writer of Motor Boat and Yachting.
