2018 UIM F1H2o and XCAT World Champion Shaun Torrente ran a Photo Competition from his social media page and had an impressively large amount of entries to choose from.
Torrente announced that the winner was Paul Bosnich (above photo) and he commented on the selection:
From the time I was a boy before every race we would dry fire the engine, I stand behind it and get ready to go..
To this day I have the same ritual.
This beautiful image reminded me of that, in addition to the whole team working to get the boat on the water!
It was the unanimous winner in our house!
The Floridian based racer also gave ‘two honorable mentions’, he said of Kay-dub Myers Brewer’s shot (below):
The images you submitted were all adorable, but the one below “spoke to me”!
(What my daughter said)!
Of Robert Trolian’s entry (below) Torrente commented:
Our picture of your brothers and sisters all together so long ago is one of the reasons this sport is so special.
Through all the trials and tribulations of life the sport has kept you guys together and spending quality time doing something you love.
Thank you to everyone what started as a giveaway to a fan turned into something that gave way more back to me.
