Well our 2008 race season starts this weekend in Riggins Idaho. This years racing for the US curcut has been cut short due to sponsors having finacial difficulties. On the other hand this year the United States will host the 2008 Worlds Championships. Racers are expected to come as far away as New Zealand. We will also have are friends from the north Canada, and our friends from the south Mexico. Hopfully it will be a good turnout. Last year when the Wordls were held in Canada the was a total 45 teams that made the trip up north. One of the US entries is going to running a 1400 HP jet turbine. The boat will be in the Unlimited class of racing. The top speed so far was 124MPH. I'm sure that after the team does a little more tweaking of the turbine and fine tuning of everything we should see some impressive speeds from this team. Hear is a couple of pictures from what is being called the MONSTER.

Here is some onboard footage from last year in their gas powered boat! The driver was Ryan Ringer. This onboard footage was shot during racing from last year on the Rouge River in Grant's Pass Oregon during the Memorial Day Weekend called BOATNIK.
