Congratulations to Andrew Smith (Wayne’s son) who made his racing debut at UHPBC driving Pony Power. Another Dargle family member on the water & the first of many trophies:)
Oxygen Thief is heading Stateside. Chris and Alan have come to an agreement with Bloomfield Racing and Oxygen Thief will be heading to the USA for 2 years in April for Chris to drive at Burley Idaho in June, Long Beach in August and Parker Arizona in November to help establish the 6ltr cell boat class and promote safety. It will be sad to see Oxygen Thief go but she has raced her heart our across Australia for the past 5 years but its a wonderful opportunity for Chris and the team.
Miss Tina Breeze GP60 is being prepared to have her new engine put in and made ready for a few major races that are coming up in April. More news soon.

Slide show of all four rounds that Briney competed in.
Briney has been again given the opportunity of driving for Team Sweden in the 2015 Eurofin Cup which this year has 6 rounds, confirmed (France, Portugal, China, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah). This is more opportunity to keep an Australian racing overseas on the world stage and after much discussion we are going to go for it. The first round was in Qatar on the 13th and 14th March, which Briney was fastest in practice and qualified on pole but the race was cancelled due to the water conditions. We need help attracting sponsors that would partner Briney in 2015 and beyond. Club Marine Magazine has a five page article about Briney in this months February anniversary issue which will help spread the word. As well as competing overseas Briney will be racing her F4 in her 2 boat BRP Racing team in the AFPGP series and other major meetings in Australia promoting the new to Australia, F4 class. There must be a company or companies that would want to promote their business both here and overseas and partner with a mature, photogenic, personable, talented, very determined young lady from Australia. Please help spread the word! Thank you
