Coleman Racing Extend Championship Lead with One Event to Go!!
In their debut season racing together the sibling pairing of Coleman Racing from Saundesrfoot are making quite an impact in the world of Offshore Powerboat Racing. Here’s what the team had to say following their event this weekend.
“I had mixed feelings going into the penultimate round in Cardiff. Having ran well in the flat of Greenock we knew we’d be faced with similar so this didn’t worry us. It was more the heat format and over regulation of the racing due to the tight confines of the bay.
The pressure was on to maintain our Championship lead at home but we’ve been in this situation before…Here last year a collision inevitably cost us the Championship.”
“The 6 week season break didn’t help as the boat was tied up having repairs, we were unable train and test so were less than confident going into fast lap qualifying with no other boats on the water we were unable to gauge our performance.
With points being awarded for qualy we were pleasantly surprised to be 2nd. We won all three of our heats to tie on points with Quantum Racing. A count back to qualy times meant we missed out on pole for the Super Final and Quantum were able to hold us to the outside of the first turns.
In the 7 lap race we pushed and pushed as hard as we could as the Quantum boys drove a brilliant defensive race giving us a good drenching on several occasions! Hands down that is the most exciting race we have ever done!
Despite narrowly missing out on the top step of the podium we are buzzing with our results and head into the final round next weekend with a 39 point lead. Huge thanks to all our friends, family and sponsors who came to support us and the P1 organisers and Cardiff council for laying on another awesome event!!”
