There must be something about the date 02-02-2022 that inspires offshore racing series organisers to publish their calendars. So, having seen what’s happening across the pond in the sunshine state the British based United Kingdom Offshore Powerboat Racing Association published their World ‘Offshore’ Powerboat Championships for 2022.
Amongst those racers keen to see what’s happening was Miles Jennings who once again will be racing on both sides of the pond.
I’m looking forward to collecting a lot of Air Miles this year. I’m starting off the season by racing around the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England with Drew Langdon in Silverline Bullet at the opening round of the UKOPRA series. Then two weeks later I’m in Cocoa Beach, Florida with P1 Offshore and Zabo Racing.
Jennings went onto say.
We had a pre-season meeting with a lot of the UK racers earlier this week and I’m really excited to see that we are going to have the largest amount of UKOPRA Class 1 competitors ever seen. It’s going to look like the great days of UK offshore racing from back in the 1990’s.
