Honeyparty.com prepares for P1 Italian Grand Prix

British team, Honeyparty.com, has been working hard to get ready for the first race of the Powerboat P1 World Championship in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, from 9-11 May. Throttleman Richard Carr and driver Paul Sinclair have been testing the specially designed vee-hull Skater 399 over a series of weekends to perfect the new set up, which has been altered to meet P1's racing regulations. Before bringing the boat to the UK earlier this year, the team had been competing in, and won, the American Offshore Super Series Vee Extreme class World and National Championships.

'To ensure that the boat is running at optimal performance and to assess any potential problem areas we have been testing in the Bournemouth Bay area using the Brass Monkey circuit, which runs from Boscombe Pier to Bournemouth Pier,' explains Team Manager Mark Pascoe. 'Using the same course each time allows us to closely monitor and test the set up of the engines, propellers and polish our technique, guaranteeing both boat and crew have the best possible advantage.'

'The testing sessions have been a great chance for Richard and me to get back in the boat and hone our skills in a variety of sea conditions,' comments Paul Sinclair, driver of Honeyparty.com. 'Seeing how we have progressed has been a good confidence boost after the spin-out at Key West in Florida.'

Supporting the pair in their P1 entry are Team Manager and second driver Mark Pascoe, who has many years experience managing race teams as well as endless powerboat race titles under his belt; Crew Chief, Trevor Leigh, who has previously worked with race teams Tekne Lamborghini, Victory Team and Honda UK; and Assistant Mechanic Danny Armon. He, like the other team members has a wealth of experience having worked at Vulture Ventures, Cougar, Pascoe International and raced in the Honda series.

'I am extremely pleased with the way the boat is running and am confident in the team's abilities,' says Team Owner and throttleman, Richard Carr. 'Having such an experienced support team has been invaluable throughout the testing and I'm in no doubt that they will continue to aid the team's successes during the P1 World Championship.'

The team's engines are now being prepared for the return journey to Tommy Hofstetter's workshop in the United States for the final stages of the team's preparations before the start of the Powerboat P1 World Championship.
