27th July 2015 - Moonshine Classic Hydroplane.

Athol and Gary Parker used to have a Hydroplane called “Moonshine” and they used to do the south island circuit back in the late 70’s early 80’s, it was one of the first cab-over Hydros in the country.

Gary also ran ICI Autocolour and finished the Griffiths cup as runnerup at Karapiro.

Would anybody have any images of Moonshine and would anyone know the whereabouts of the boat nowadays?

The Zenith Technia Team were unable to repair the damage to the boat after Richard Sommerville Flipped it on Friday

Quite a few results are close with the officials having to work things out so results cant go up just yet sorry.


Cliff Jordan in "Summer Wine" should have done Enough to win the Modified Hydroplane Title with a 1st and 2nd placing. Cliff who is in his 70's drove really well to take out the Championship.

Big Winds on the main Lake this morning so they have moved everything to the smaller Arm where it isn't quite so rough.

I'm not expecting all classes to get in both races and the GP's may not run yet. I will do the Results we have Tonight after racing or after prize giving..

This event the end of the 2015 Championship series for the Grand Prix Hydroplane class has witnessed fierce competition between the North and South Island teams it has come down to only 194 points separating two teams Christchurch’s Raymond Hart driving “The Boss” leading on 2719 points from Wanganui’s “Rural Fuels 57” young driver Jack Lupton on 2525 points.

Hart who Last year at the Lake Dunstan event blew his Grand Prix Hydroplane over in a spectacular crash that Took rescue teams six minutes to pull him out of his F16 cockpit safety cell. Hart walked away from The high speed crash saved by his air system that these boats all wear. Hart has thrown out a challenge to the “B” team as he has lab led the strong four boat team from Waverley in Wanganui, along with Jack Lupton his older brother Ken driving “Lucas Oils” and father Warwick driving “Annihilator Race Boats” and Cousin David Alexander “The Steeler”. It will be like the “Rabbit been hunted down by the dogs” says Lupton Snr as they wrap up their Season with two heats in the NZ Grand Prix Hydroplane Championship on the Saturday and the King Of the Nationals Sunday, double points on these races leaves the 2015 Championship title still up for grabs.

Another exciting finish is promised in the Formula One Tunnels after four rounds which spanned Over four different venues, Wanganui, Lake Karapiro Cambridge, Lake Rotoiti Nelson Lakes, Lake Kaniere, Hokitika has now come down to the final at Lake Dunstan Cromwell.

1st Raymond Hart "The Boss"
2nd Ken Lupton "Lucas Oils"
3rd David Alexander "Steeler"
David won heat one but lost a prop in the second heat. A spin for Raymond in heat one without the wing on the boat left him down on points but a convincing win in heat two with the wing saw him take the championship.


South Island ProCom

The "Zenith Tecnica" boat is quite a well built carbon boat and has a great cell.
Wins to Lone Wolf, The Chase and Rayglass(2?). Design Windows was consisant in placing as well which made picking the best boat of the 4 Races too close to call.

15th March 2015 - Goldcup Regatta

Race Site has never looked better after the Club members had a working bee today. as you can see we have been working on the grassed area for boat parking now its good all the way along the Strip. Tony Arthur's already to go too, he's just wondering why he is the only boat here already. The Club has decided to start racing early in the morning so if your boat is there on Friday it will be scrutineered then to speed things up.

There were about 7 or so Ski Boats at the Ramp making the most of the good conditions on the river. Weather forecast for the weekend is looking pretty good at this stage as well.

With 25 drivers entered for the North Island Clubmans we will run 3 heats to determine the fastest 10 boats for the Championship. Some of the boats have double drivers in the event they both make the top ten one will have to pull out and the 11th fastest boat will be in the finals. With ten very evenly matched boats the North Island Clubmans Championship should be very close run thing.

2nd March 2015 - Rotoiti Regatta

Raymond Hart "The Boss"

Graeme Robertson a Nelson Photographer has some great shots of the racing on his Blog Webpage and will be uploading more shots Later on.

NZF1 Points Tour Points after Round 3 at Rotoiti. Very close at the Top of the Table just 2points separate Luke Sharp and Julian Stilwell and any of the top 5 would still have a great chance of winning the Tour.


1st March 2015 - Rotoiti Regatta 7.30pm
Pictures will have to wait until late monday night sorry.

South Island Modified Hydroplane.
1st Daniel Hall "Foreno Tapware"
2nd Tony Arthur "Thunderbird"
3rd Cliff Jordan "Summerwine"

Summerwine had a DNF in heat 1 which sealed his 3rd place finish overall. A new engine in the boat wasn't running as well as it should have. Foreno Tapware easily won the two heats to take the title from a much improved Thunderbird which looked good showing plenty of speed.

South Island Pro Stock.
1st Mike Ryan "Provocative"
2nd Richard Smith "Balistic"
3rd Nigel McCaa "Victory"
Great racing Balistic and Provocative each had a win but a third in heat two to Balistic saw Mike Ryan take the win. The Victory Boat runs a Dodge engine makes quite a nice sound and was the first time racing in NZ for this boat. It run very quick on the Sunday with Tony McCaa Driving.

South Island GP.
No Official Results racing went on to long and with the ferry to catch i missed the prize giving and the results. There were a few DNF and DNS so it might have been The Boss that picked it up.

King of the Lake
1st Jack Lupton "GP57"
2nd Ken Lupton "Lucas Oils"
3rd Jason Hagerty "Miss Aberdeen"
Beach start race that saw Jeff Price "Lone Wolf" fly off in the distance leaving the 3 Hydros behind but one by one they all rounded up and passed the F1 Boat

 

Rotoiti Pirates versus the Manawatu Club Teams Race

This was a lot of fun the Manawatu Team were out gunned and got Hammered by the Rotoiti Pirates. Both heats were brilliant with the boats on grid two abreast start much the same as Stockcars but without the biff. Slowest at the front and fastest at the rear Heat one it was Ross Leger in Legend who won the next 5 places were all hard fought over and very very tight, Manawatu boats Little Chief(fill in for our broken Lookout) and Pincoya brought up the rear. Heat two was run immediately after a Clubmans race, Pincoya made a mess of his engine in that race and couldnt start so Rotoiti had the advantage already. Georgia Crowle in Flipper was soon in the lead and driving quite well to hold off most of the field and Andy Morris and Craig Merion ran beside her making it very hard for Bayden Sprozen and Ross Leger to pass resulting in a bit of a white wash for the Rotoiti Club. The return Match in Manawatu will be even more interesting with a 6 on 6 Teams Race. Clubmans had a lot of different starts on the weekend Start Boats, Clock Starts, Beach Starts and Handicap starts, made for a great watch and quite a few of the crowd came up afterwards to find out more about it. The Commentator loved it and was very good at letting the crowd know what was going on throughout the Day.

 

Formula One Tour.
Most of the racing was top notch and very clean. Julian Stilwell seemed to come out on top overall for the weekend picking up a few wins Malcolm Jamieson ran into Luke Sharp in Race 2 on Saturday resulting some damage to his boat and a DNF. Luke finished a lap or two down in that race. The Tour may send in the results if not they will be on there facebook page.


1st March 2015 - Rotoiti Regatta 2.00pm

AE Baker.
1st Jack Lupton "GP57"
2nd Ken Lupton "Lucas Oils"
3rd Raymond Hart "The Boss"

Only the 3 boats contested the title and they finished in the same order in both heats. Ken tried very hard to pass Jack in the last two laps of Heat one but broke a blower belt coming into the final turn. Heat two was just follow the leader.

Still a few races to get through and ill try and do an update on the ferry tonight with the results.

Great day for it down here and another bumper crowd watching.


28th February 2015 - Rotoiti Regatta 6.00pm

Miss Aberdeen was flying in the hydroplane races.


Mike Ryan was in Provocative and had a close battle in with Richard Smith in the Pro Stock Title with both picking up wins. Ben Ryan was driving Guns n Roses and had the Front Deck blow off on the back strait, the boat was driven back in to the trailer.


Jeff Price took out first heat of the Arthur McCaa Title.


The GP's just did test runs all day only 3 GP's as David Alexander has a back injury and didn't come down and ARB is still being repaired. there titles are run tomorrow when Ken Lupton will be here to race. Sam Hughes did some damage to his boat in testing when the bottom of the left Sponson cane away and he sunk. Quite a few broken boats some like Pincoya have been patched up and should be going again tomorrow. Unfinished Business and Guns n Roses are out.

Weather was perfect all day and a really big crowd out to watch and enjoy the close racing.

Formula One ran two heats today race one was lead by Derek Mcadam until a last lap pass by Malcolm Jamieson pushed him back to second. race two Julian Stilwell look the win leading all the way over Derek Mcadam points should be quite close in the SI Title.


28th February 2015 - Rotoiti Regatta 8.30am

Plenty of Race boats here today and its going to be a nice day by the looks of things.
Looking forward to seeing a good field of Inboard V8's on the water.

21st February 2015 - Manukau/Auckland Regatta 4.00pm.
The Junior North Island Title was very close. Mason Dunlop took both wins but it was all plain sailing with all the drivers pushing hard and making mistakes along the way. Alix MacBeth probably did enough to earn second Outright with Cody Greenling 3rd all unofficial at this stage.


Christine Hanning in "Bring it On" drove brilliantly to take out both Heats of the North Island F3 title beating Shawn Smith home in second place. Luke Sharp, Bayden Sprozen, Ross Leger and Andrew MacBeth will all be fighting for the third spot with the points and placing's between these boats very even.

All the Racing was very close all day with the water and weather pretty good although a bit overcast at times. The club got through the whole programme quite quickly.

The Bathtub Brigade had a good time doing there own thing on the water 7 tubs showed up and only the one spillage on the water.


21st February 2015 - Manukau/Auckland Regatta 10.45am.

Looks like a great day at Manukau/Auckland Speedboat Club. Racing underway about 11am hopefully. I will post some news after the racing.


The Weller's are ready to race with all the Juniors being weighed during scrutineering most boats were in the over 200kg class and nobody was underweight at all. There are 5 boats running for the Junior Title should be some close racing.
