    Default Merc 60 already being raced in the UK

    Could someone please refresh my memory and tell me why the 60 has not come to the states yet ?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure it was the UK, but it was Europe (I'm pretty sure your pictures are Germany).

    The reason is ... APBA just wrote the rules this year ... kinda like the D Stock Mk58/Merc 500 thing ... you can't race until you have the rules and you don't make them up mid year (remember, APBA's racing year is November 1 thru October 31).
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    I guess the person to ask is the OPC chairman ... contact info is in the front of Propellor every month

    Default Formula Mercury/ SL 60

    I just read that UIM roles that Formula Mercury must be namned
    SL 60 and the World Championship is next month in Sweden.

    From www.nolimit.se homepage.
    Sundsvall, new Venue for Formula Mercury/ SL60 World Championship & Formula 2000
    Sundsvall is the town replacing Karlshamn for the World Championship race in Formula Mercury / SL60. It has been a long fight to find the right Town, possible to race at same date July 19. Now it is settled and beleive me, it will also be good for the sport itself to be established also in middle of Sweden, at the Capital of Norrland.

    Seems like ONE of the hurdles for the US is a boat builder. Has that one been cleared yet?

    Again, I'd say the person in the know would be the OPC chair
