Cheaper Starter Class?

Hi Adam,

Forgive me if I am wrong on this.

But wasn't Zap Cat Racing started as the base entry level class for power boat racing or is it nothing to do with the RYA or BIBOA ?

From the races I have spectated at, looks extreamely exciting & challenging.

Dose all racing have to be governed by RYA/BIBO?

Apart from owning a boat what other requirements needed to partake in this type of event.


It would be helpful if one of the racers or organisations could provide info/links to subject please, you must have started somewhere.

Many thanks.

AY:-

No it wasn't - it was started by Euan Mcgrath as a good idea!

No it doesn't although the RYA have the rights to everything with National Championship in it, and insurance would be very difficult without them plus they issue licences etc....

If it is a basic race a day licence will do, to enter a championship you will need a license for the season - mine is for Inernational class III up to 4 litre and Formula 2 RIB and costs 300! (The navigator will need one as well!) For National racing the boat will need a measurement certificate as well as all the safety gear.

Have a look at our site - we have section just for this sort of information.

If you or anyone else needs help or advice as to how to start PM me and I will give you my number for some (almost) impartial advice!
