P1 Superstocks back in Action

The weekend of 30th May saw the start of this season’s P1 Superstocks powerboat racing off the Yorkshire coast.

As last year, Boatshed Yorkshire is sponsoring the local New Wave Team, based out of Hull. The team comprises Dave Taft as Driver and (a change for this year), Lee Norvall as Navigator. Dave was named as Rookie of the Year last year and hopes to add to that this year.

The races are contested by P1 Panthers - 70MPH powerboats with 250 hp engines around a roughly 2nm course, for 20-30 minutes.

Exclusively from ScarboroughNews TV, here’s an interview with Dave and Lee, and a tour round the boat.


Next race, Gosport this coming weekend, 11th-12th July – if you’re on the south coast pop along and watch!
