Re: Jetsprint

I'm watching this on SPEED right now....it's boats going around a roadrace style course that is basically like a man-made river cut thru the ground. One at a time, beat the clock style racing.

These guys are cool!

If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

Re: Jetsprint

That is some of the most dangerous looking stuff I've ever seen. I cannot believe the acceleration and turning capabilities those sprintboats possess.

Re: Jetsprint

I've seen that a few times only because they have it on before the GP races lately. It almost looks impossible. I've seen F1 boats turn like that, but never a jet drive boat.

They were talking last week about one that flipped...yikes!

Boat racing is intriguing...but scary too. My Dad lives on the Columbia where they race Unlimited Hydros every year, so I've been to a few of those. I've seen many flips and driver deaths.

Check out boat drags sometime if you have a strong heart.

Re: Jetsprint

Boat racers are even more then any other racer. *But I definitely admire them, takes great skill to pilot one of those machines
