Carbonell’s SBI looks to partner with Japanese race

John Carbonell, the President of Super Boat International (SBI) organised the Key West World Championship for 38 years.

This year however, Race World Offshore (RWO) organised the event after Carbonell’s contract to run races in Key West expired after last year.

Undaunted, SBI have today announced plans which include a partnership with the Japan Power Boat Association (JPBA) in 2021.

Raceboat designer Lorne Campbell analyses the double flip

Lorne Campbell has specialised in the design of high-speed powerboats since 1970 and his lines have been used to produce some of the most successful offshore racing catamarans.

He has been employed on occasion to analyse what has happened in high speed craft incidents and accidents, both racing and non-racing.

His job is to look at the physical evidence, try to work out the truth and to give an opinion as to which side, if any, is closest to it.

I asked Lorne to share his views on the dramatic double flip of Team Allen Lawn Care and LPC at Key West.
