KIWI CHASING US1


Barry 2019-03-29

Kiwi offshore racer Wayne Valder is returning to the USA to have another crack at taking out the US1 offshore title. 

Having had mixed results in the past few seasons, with some wins, but also his share of mechanical and boat issues, Wayne is confident his preparation is as good as it gets for the 2019 season.

He has teamed up with US racer Grant Bruggemann again this year, to run Pro Floors, a 42 MTI  running a pair of 750 hp engines in the highly competitive Superboat class. Grant was seriously burnt at the end of January this year, but has made a steady recovery and is determined to be race ready for the start of the season in May.

 “Our boat is currently under repair after it’s rollover at Clearwater last year, but Grant’s Signature Racing Shop has it well on target for the opening round at Cocoa Beach”, says Wayne.

This will be an exciting time for the Kiwi team, especially for Wayne who is celebrating his 50th birthday on the 17th May at Cocoa Beach.

 If you are in the US during the season and want to go along and support the Kiwi team, the following is the race schedule.

Round 1 – Cocoa Beach 18th and 19th May 
Round 2 -  is Lake of the Ozarks on 1st June
Round 3 -  Sarasota 6th and 7th July
Round 4 -  St Clair, Michigan 27th and 28th July
Round 5 – Michigan City 3rd and 4th August
Round 6 – Clearwater 28th and 29th September
Key West – 6th to 10th November to finish up the year.
