Sail-World.com : P1 SuperStock Championship - Huddleston breaks Plymouth sound barrier
P1 SuperStock Championship - Huddleston breaks Plymouth sound barrier


'300 race at Plymouth'    Powerboat P1

At the P1 SuperStock Championship Dave Huddleston took his first 300 class win yesterday on a glorious Plymouth Sound after two years of DNF's but it was Ian Moule who won the SuperPole earlier in the day as the punishing flat conditions left many skiers stranded.

After the race Dave commented 'There were lots of casualties in that race, but I got a good start and didn’t make any mistakes, I am really looking forward to tomorrow.' Dave admitted having to back out of the race to the first pin with four skis abreast 'I thought I would rather finish than risk it on that first corner.'

Ian Moule had a very successful afternoon after winning the SuperPole he went on to finish second overall in race 1, he commented 'Qualifying was flat out all the way, I have a brand new ski and older wiser muscles which are used to this punishment after years of ski-ing, water skiing and other crazy sports. I really enjoyed that. I got a good start in qualifying, got into the lead and managed to keep it.'

Regular 300 class contender Tim Batte had a fuel hose problem losing him time in the SuperPole race he commented 'The fuel hose came off on the first lap and then did it again, I don’t like it flat, I prefer it when its a bit rougher. I am definitely losing speed somewhere – these flat conditions are all about who has the fastest ski, its like racing on a lake.'

Adrian Wilson wins the 250 class -  Powerboat P1  


In the 250 Class Adrian Wilson won both the SuperPole and Race 1 ahead of Matt Shipley 'Adrian was just slightly quicker than me off the start, and although I was chasing him hard Adrian was tight on every corner and didn’t leave a whisker of a gap anywhere.'

John Heath wins the 200 class after crashing out in the SuperPole -  Powerboat P1  


In the 200 Class John Heath took a nasty tumble in the SuperPole race after having a coming together with a buoy. 'I crashed my ski in the SuperPole race which ripped off one of the stabilisers (sponsons) and caused my chest to crash into the handlebars, I lost the qualifying session to Steve even though he came off and went for a swim. Despite having a sore chest, and a ski not handling well John went on to win the afternoons race for the 200 class! After the race he said 'I still won the race so I am please with that.'

Rookie racer and new comer to AquaX Jo Harvey (West Midlands) was making his debut race appearance in Plymouth yesterday finishing a credible seventh in the SuperPole and fifth overall in his first ever race. 'I feel pretty good after the race, everyone has been really helpful and friendly, offering tips, I felt a bit achy after the SupePole race but I felt a bit more confident. Once I get a few races under my belt I think we could do quite well. I am already looking forward to tomorrow.'

Russell Marmon won the race and the SuperPole overall on his unrestricted Kawasaki Ultra 300 and heads up the leader board for the overall Plymouth Cup trophy of the weekend.

Todays race will be a 40 minute race at 12.00 on a tighter shorter course.
