Bl**dy hell. 70mph in three seconds and they don't slow down for the bends or they lose steerage from the water jet. The course is a 10ft wide ditch, three feet deep, with lots of bends. The force going round these corners can be as high as 5g which is why you need to wear a neck brace and five point harness. They burn 15 litres of pure methanol a minute.
Horse lost 15 pounds during the race as he became the UK's first survivor of a jetsprint crash when his boat decided to go offroading at 70mph. When interviewed by the press, he said, ''Well it certainly ain't no cruising boat and I'd like to know what its angle of vanishing stability is''.
