In a press release issued by Super Boat International (SBI), the organization confirmed that its coverage of the 36th Annual Key West Offshore World Championships from this past November will air as three one-hour television episodes on NBC Sports.
Offshore racing fans can catch the three-part series chronicling the 2016 SBI Key West Offshore World Championships, which will air on NBC Sports channels across the country, according to the following schedule:
Episode 1: 3/19/17 @ 6 PM ET
Episode 2: 3/25/17 @ 5 PM ET
Episode 3: 4/2/17 @ 5:30 PM ET
After the largely successful television feature aired on NBC Sports the last two years, the network has high hopes for this year’s three episode format. As previously reported by Speedonthewater, “With the expanded programming, fans will get to see more race action, and the in-depth coverage will allow them to get a behind-the-scenes look at the boats and teams that make offshore racing so exciting.” The production team also relied on on-board footage from several of the race teams including Team Teague Custom Marine, powered by a pair of Teague-built SuperCat engines. The Team’s patented camera angels and techniques pleased the production crew and we are hoping that much of the footage will be integrated into the show.
“We ran hard, didn’t damage anything and the motors ran perfect”, Bob Teague, Throttleman, recounted about the week in Key West. It was a very solid week of racing for Teague Custom Marine in the ultra-competitive Super Boat class, who placed 4th overall for the week. Flawless Teague Power and a first class crew!
We are excited to see the outcome of the series, and if it is anything like some of the promos and teasers that have been released, it is sure to be a professional and exciting production.
