Steve Curtis and James Sheppard will be racing Miss GEICO in the first round of the 2019 US APBA Offshore Championship next weekend at Cocoa Beach.
The US APBA Offshore Championship will be jointly organised by the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) and Powerboat P1 and will consist of a 6 venue series this year.
Curtis and Sheppard will be racing in the ‘re-booted’ Class One category, all boats in this class will weigh 11,500 pounds and the race engines will be sealed and governed by Mercury Racing to insure fairness.
The 47-foot-long Miss GEICO Victory catamaran is made of carbon, Kevlar and S-glass for high performance.
The boat sports a pair of brand new and recently released Mercury sealed 1100 horsepower engines and can reach top speeds of over 160 mph.
