Drew Langdon, the winner of the Hong Kong Asia Powerboat Championship, will not be taking part in Macau, over the weekend of May 3-5.
Langdon badly hurt his shoulder in a testing accident last weekend and that has restricted his arm movement.
He told me after a check-up in hospital this afternoon:
There are plenty of One Arm Bandits in Macau and I’m not sure they need another one!
Langdon from Devon, was the class of the field in Hong Kong last November and surprised many – as he is predominately known best as a big boat offshore racer:
I need to get fit for June now, I’ll be racing my Outerlimits hull at the Fortitudo Property Poole Bay 100 and the competition is already looking very tough.
John raced Offshore UIM Class 3 in the 1980’s & 1990’s.
He served as the Cowes Torquay Cowes Event Director for 4 years, including running the 50 th Anniversary Event in 2010.
He has recently organised 4 British Offshore races under UKOPRA sanction.
He is the Editor of Powerboat Racing World.
