AMSOIL Offshore Achieves 3rd Place in Heated Competition at 2015 SBI Key West World Championships
The 35th Annual Key West Offshore World Championships was the stage for the greatest race yet in the Superboat Class. Nine Superboats were preregistered, including a brand new 388 Skater being raced for the first time by the new Performance Boat Center team and a completely in-house effort by Maritimo from Australia. All the new faces and equipment brought with them much intrigue and drama, but as any Key West veteran knows, it is experience and not hype that counts.
AMSOIL Offshore Battles Challenging Course at Port Huron for Overall Win
Team AMSOIL Offshore traveled back to Michigan for the third weekend in a row for their last Great Lakes stop at Port Huron, Michigan. The historical shipping and trade city is located at the southern base of Lake Huron and the mouth of the Saint Clair River, which is also the border between Michigan and Canada. The race is a very unique international effort that involves officials and events in both the United States and Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. In terms of exposure in the past, the Port Huron venue was overshadowed by the crowd and boat count of the Saint Clair race two weeks prior. However, the event has been gaining momentum, and with a boat count over 40 and huge local spectator turnout on both the American and Canadian shores, the venue was a great success for great racing!
