Qatar 96 throttleman and Class 1’s eight times World Champion and most prolific race winner, Steve Curtis, added another ‘world’ title to his impressive CV on Sunday, after winning the third and final race of the 28th Annual American SBIP-APBA Offshore World Championship in Key West, Florida.

The US-1 Reliable Carriers crew of Curtis and American Tom Abrams were tied in first place with Talk-N-Trash after finishing third in the first race and winning the second, earlier in the week and took the title in the Superboat 750 class with a win in yesterday’s decider. 'It was huge, a big win for us,' said Curtis. 'Tom and I have been coming here for years and have always had a monkey on our back, so it was great to finally get the championship.

'It was a really good race with Talk-N-Trash. They were chasing hard, but everything went perfectly for us and they weren't going to catch us.'

Curtis now turns his attentions to the final two races of the Class 1 World Powerboat Championship in Dubai on the 6 and 13 December.
