I went to the launch last Tuesday at Brooklands. Great to finally meet afew people & put names to faces. Talk by the author was great & finally get close up to BABS was a bonus as she was supposed to have left by then.

From my long experience with sheds, I can't help feeling that the most significant achievement there was to keep the felt from blowing off the roof once they got over about 50 mph....

Don't think Adrian Newey was on the shed design team somehow.

Thanks for sharing, I’m a bit shocked that they have used what looks to be a stock hull & drive configuration, as they could have created something quite radical, on the other hand I guess that they want to get their foot in the door for any potential changes in F1. Not that I know owt about powerboat racing lol
