World Class One Offshore Race In Plymouth




I was lucky enough recently to drive the Chris Parsonage Racing King Of Shaves Class One Offshore Powerboat for a piece and Yesterday I was invited to watch the British leg of the championship in Plymouth. Chris (throttle) and James (pilot) were running really well until a freak bit of wake made them flip and capsize at 130mph. Thankfully they both emerged unscathed but the boat looks like a write off. Oh well, It'll only cost about a million pounds to replace. Here's Chris having a beer and thanking Neptune that he's not at the bottom in Davy Jones's locker.
