The 2017 Norwegian International Boat Show will open its doors next Wednesday to the general public.
For the Powerboat Racing fan, the Lillestrøm based indoor exhibition, should be a dream come true.
Nearly 800 square meters of exhibiting space has been allotted to ‘Powerboat World’, a show case of Norwegian raceboats.
The Norges Motorsportforbund (NMF), will be displaying their, ‘Class of 2016′.
UIM 3C World Champion, Jan Trygve Braaten’s Twister cat will take pride of place alongside Inge Lund’s Ocke Mannerfelt designed and built UIM Class 3A World Speed Record holder.
The Norwegian Governing body will also have boats from UIM classes, GT15, GT30, V60 and P750 in Lillestrøm.
The ‘Powerboat World’ space will also feature Norway’s favourite racer and singer’s Marit Strømøy Racing Team, Preben Sørensen’s latest Predator hull and a Victory Team catamaran.
Before the Show opens to the public, a press conference is set for next Tuesday (21st March -19:00).
I have been told that there will be some exciting racing announcements for 2017, I look forward to being there and reporting on them here next week.
