The new look race boat is looking more punchy than ever with its statement aluminous green/yellow lacquer – but with an updated more modern logo and more edgy colours. Not that you would have ever missed them before, but the makeover certainly will have an impact out on the water this season. “We actually went with the red, chrome and blue this year to wave the American flag,” said Gary Stray, Geicos Crew Chief. “We are representing the U.S. and proud to be doing so.”
Aside the glamour there have been some ergonomic changes within the cockpit for Steve created by Gary. He has crafted a new bespoke trim handle and throttle lever which should make Steve’s job a little easier out on the water! Assisting Steve again this season will be driver James Shepherd making this an all English crew which will no doubt please fans watching live from across the water. Let’s hope the boys impress the American crowds once again this season.
With only two days to go until the official start of the APBA race season at Cocoa Beach this weekend; May 17th – 19th, it’s either time to pack your bags and make your way to the race site or watch everything live on Facebook at www.facebook.com/powerboatp1wc Racing starts at 10am Eastern Time.
Good luck to everyone out there and have a fantastic race season!
Team Steve Curtis.
