Last week Huski Racing carried out two days of testing in preparation for the 2022 offshore racing season. The test sessions, for which the team used their 50ft hull took place on the Indian River, off Jensen Beach in Florida. It was their first test since winning the APBA World Championship in Key West two months ago.
Day one of the program included initial setup work, with the second one seeing high speed test runs with a focus on the new drive shafts.
The team are now all set to unveil a brand-new race boat, featuring their new livery at the Miami International Boat Show next month. This new 47ft Victory hull will be the team’s latest Class 1 entry, set to run alongside the 50ft Huski-Alegra Motorsports hull, which won the 2021 APBA World Championship.
Through the course of the test sessions, we completed a shake-down of new drive shafts on the boat after experiencing a failure in Key West back in November. We wanted to ensure everything was in decent shape after last season and going into this one.
We are excited to unveil our new Huski Class 1 boat at the Miami International Boat Show. This is a great sign of what’s to come for Class 1 as enthusiasm and interest grows across the sport, especially with several international teams looking to join. We are anticipating a strong fleet of Class 1 boats at the first race in Cocoa Beach, and we’re looking forward to releasing our full race calendar very soon.
