*** 2018 Atlanta Spring Nats Race Recap & Results ***

Recommended Posts

Hey Gang,


Well folks, that’s a wrap! Thank you to all the racers, volunteers, AMB members, and sponsors who helped to make the event an overwhelming success. We kicked off racing Saturday morning and pushed hard all day knowing that the forecast for Sunday was less than desirable. With everyone’s cooperation and dedication we were able to click off a record breaking (for the AMB) 105 heats in one day! That put us just over ½ way into round 3. We started racing at 8AM sharp this morning and concluded round 3 just before 10AM. At the end of round 3 we polled the racers and they overwhelmingly voted against testing mother nature and the race was called at the end of the 3rd round. It was the right decision… The bottom dropped out just as we finished tearing down the pond and never let up.


And the winners are (drumroll please)…

Very cool, thanks for doing this.

 

Amazing how wet stuff gets at mill speeds, also the abuse (load/unload) we boaters show our stuff! :)

Something I noticed is that the boat is carrying the right sponson. Not sure if it's motor/prop torque or the fin but that right sponson almost never touched the water while running at speed. Somehow, I doubt that's a problem ;)
