    I asked Laura Pertusini who the kid is next to Renato Molinari and here is her answer.

    Good to see the Italians are still running a powerboat school, government funded I bet.
    That's why they produce great champions, Scotti, Molinari,Cappolini etc,
    Probably do the same thing in race cars.

    I think this Molinari/Nordica sponsored boat is driven by Kicco Vidoli. Maybe 1985..or later..(The 6 inch mis-section V8)

    It was not you "this time" Jackie..!!
    Iv'e known Steve for over 40 years and he is as keen a racer as you are Lassie, i'm sure he didn't wander far off the main topic---you probably pissed him off by being a tad pedantic.
    Change it's not my nuts heading for the crusher----one must be thankful for small mercies.
    There was only ever 3 number one boat racers and neither you or me is one of 'em--------Seebold----Sirois----Molinari----in no particular order-----just a pity Sirois went offshore about the time of the factory duels, though he did get a few months in with both Renato and Billy.
    Renato never did reach the same dizzy heights in Offshore, though he did come second in a heat in Trieste in a boat of his own design and build. Maybe you can elucidate on his venture into "Offshore" Lassie.???
