    "Bo and I made a plan to fly to Auronzo, Italy just to watch the OE World Championship. The ON World Championship was at the same time.
    Paul Kalb was not happy to see me there and Roger Jenkins was upset with Paul Kalb to, so Roger Jenkins was racing the Volvo Penta/Konig at this race.
    This was the first time the Volvo was doing really good and Roger Jenkins was leading the race when something went wrong.
    Well, my brain started to spin: Me – Volvo – Sweden – Problem with Paul Kalb – OMC kicking out Billy Huzell who really was behind my success in racing
    The drivers Paul Kalb picked was way behind in the race and I was smiling.
    Remember that OMC was using laughing gas to go faster, but that did not help.
    This was also the first time I did see Renato Molinari play dirty, well not really Renato but his second boat driven by Zoppi I think his name was. He sank Cees VD Velden on purpose by running in to his boat just in front of us at the far end of the race course. Molinari ended up winning both OE and ON at that race, but not really in a proper way. (ON)
    Paul Kalb had a bad bad weekend, and after the Race he apologized. Now he wanted Bo and Lars to race Amsterdam and Rotterdam with one of the OMC factory OE boats"
    Lars, You need to back down on your criticism of Paul Kalb. Paul had many friends & did a lot for APBA racing starting outin small stock outboards helping many get started in racing.Paul was very 2 stroke smart & even was Edgar Rose’s R&D guy when OMC developed their new snowmobile engines. He also was after Miller’s mentor as well as others. You & others may have had your issues with him in Brugge, but let those issues already stated just lie

    OMC's massive win in Bristol-Embassy GP 1977.
    Renato Molinari was on fire in his is new Evinrude V6 CCC and his in line 3 CC in this race. Renato was not only the overall winner in the OZ class #2 Molinari/Saffa/Evinrude V6 2.448 liter cross-flow.
    He was also the winner in the OE class #165 Molinari/Evinrude CC.
    Yes I was there racing OE and finished sixth in my Molinari/Volvo Penta/Konig
    Well..it was OMC engines in the top four overall positions .

    When did they start using methanol in the 3cyl?
    Did they ever try in any v6?

    I was part of testing out methanol at the OMC factory in Brugge/Bruges 1975 for the first real OMC OE class race engine.
    Turn out pretty bad and I could have lost my life in a really bad crash at the factory.
    For a few reasons I am only posting a link to what happen..
