The heat is on for another powerboat race in Singapore. It has been 15 years since the last one held at Marina Bay.
This coming race will be very different. The race boats are entry level for the common man in the street who wants to race. These boats are know as T750s, about 14 feet long fitted with stock Tohatsu 50hp Outboards and capable of speeds up to 55 mph. They are single seat, mono hulls using foot throttles and fueled with 20 litre plastic petrol tanks.
