    That's where the money is GOING ... vs where it is coming from.

    No one in the west is brave enough to sponsor any big sporting event with what might be their last dollar before the socialists take it ... or they are just so greedy that they don't risk unorthodox advertising straight forward plain vanilla only please
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Maybe Lucas Oil is the right sponsor to bring back UIM F-1 racing to the USA..

    Default I hope you are right about the F-1 boats..................

    and other types of outboard racing also. It looks as though NBRA is ahead of the game (APBA) with the work they have done with Lucas and the Wheatland facility and also the ethanol sponsorship. The Ethanol sponsorship publicity should playwell in the midwest corn country.

    Do you have any other pictures that show the area any better Lars, specifically the width of the facility where turns would be located? Dimensions are fine, but when you can actually see something it makes it much clearer in relation to other landmarks just how much room might be available.

    I do NOT think you can run big outbords in a circle at Lucas Oil Boat Racing Arena..but maybe smaller classes.

    Well..I am going back to Lucas Oil Boat Racing Arena July 29 for the big Drag boat race..
    and can take a closer look at the possibilty to run Champ/Prop/ UIM F-1 boats there.

    We raced F1-V8 at the Holme Pierre Point row boat boat stadium outside Nottingham, England without any problem..
    Well..a 2 liter Merc boat flipped and landed in the dirt..



    The picture is from that race

    Roggiero Looks for “Baba” Boat Victory in Kiev!

    KIEV, Ukraine – Wednesday, July 27, 2011 –

    Long time boat racing star turned master boat builder Massimo Roggiero has turned his little boat shop in Busto Arsizio, Italy into a giant killer on the UIM F1 H2O World Championship tour in just six short years.

    Massimo's hulls have won two of the last four World Championships with Sami Selio of Finland at the controls of his Mad Croc Team BABA in both 2007 and again in 2010 and hopes to win this weekend as well as the tour stops this weekend for the Grand Prix of Ukraine in the town of Vyshgorod just north of Kiev on the 28th and 29th of July.

    “We have been unlucky so far this season as we chase our first victory this season,” said Roggiero, the winner of three Grand Prix victories. “We led in Doha with Sami from pole position until he broke late in the event and again in the race in Portimao when Marit Stromoy had pole until she crashed out of the race on a re-start with driver Shaun Torrente of Team Sweden ending her dreams of a first Grand Prix victory.”

    Thus far in 2011 the Qatar Team led by Jay Price's pair of victories in Doha and Portimao and his teammate Alex Carella winning two weeks ago in Kazan, Tatarstan at the Grand Prix of Russia has given the DAC hull three straight wins thus far.

    “Last race for the first time we had more boats than any other manufacturer,” stated Massimo. “We are always doing our best to make sure each racing client gets the personal service he or she deserves when they purchase a boat from BABA. Having been a driver I know what it takes to have a pleasurable experience at a race weekend and I try to carry that over to my clients.”

    Drivers from 12 different nations have arrived at the Kiev Sea for this weekend's 239th Grand Prix in the UIM F1 H2O World Championship's history that dates back to 1981.

    Tomorrow's schedule has teams preparing their boats to go through official inspection with Friday highlighted with practice and official qualifying that takes place at 1800 local, 1500 GMT.

    Saturday the 29th will host the official Grand Prix and the fourth stop on the 2011 UIM F1 H2O World Championship tour again at 1800 local and 1500 GMT.

    All the “live” qualifying and Grand Prix action can be viewed by going to the official website www.f1h2o.com
