    VP75 was created by the Twin City Powerboat Association in Minnesota, USA, in 2006 as an entry class taking advantage of older v-bottom boats and 49 cu. in. motors, both of which are plentiful and inexpensive. It quickly became the largest class in our club. Though it went national a few years ago, it is still only raced here in Minnesota. The 75hp Johnson and Evinrude motors have dominated the class. From the APBA website:

    Minimum Age: 18 years old
    Minimum Length: 13'
    Engine: Must be stock production and mass marketing class E. (45-49.9 total cu. in. max piston displacement)
    Speed: 55-58 MPH
    Minimum Weight: 900 lbs. (Boat, Engine, Driver)
    Hull: Molded V-Bottoms
    Engine Block: 45 to 49.9 cubic inches
    Est. Horsepower: 75

    Search vp75 or vp 75 on YouTube and you will find a bunch of videos.
