After the success of their race weekend last November in Hong Kong, the Asia Powerboat Association (APA) are gearing up for their next event.
In May the host venue will be Macau, formerly a colony of Portugal and is now a Special Administrative Region of China.
APA Racer Recruitment Coordinator Sarah Donohue (above) explained to me:
We want to be the fastest growing marine motorsport series in Asia and the APA are dedicated to growing and developing powerboat racing at all levels.
Our first round will be held in Macau on 3-5 May, where a competitor can simply sign-up and race.
The APA will provide a fully fuelled, ready to race boat.
The organisers will be providing Tohatsu powered John Guille designed single-seater production T750 Shakespeare hulls for the event that will be held over three days, with six races over the weekend lasting around 15 minutes each.
The race course is close to land, tight and fast, making it highly competitive for the racer and a great spectacle for the crowd.
The event champion and runners up will receive a trophy, a medal and a prize.
All racers are invited to a welcome dinner, an awards dinner and lunch will also be provided during the event.
If you fancy a crack at racing in Asia this May, email firstname.lastname@example.org for their information pack and prices.
