Congratulations to Matt Alcone and Jerry Gilbreath of Alcone Motorsports for their victory in Superboat and 1st overall! Finishing second was La Gran Argentina piloted by the flamboyant Argentine Daniel Scioli and throttleman Fabio Buzzi the noted Itallian boat designer. In third place were the men from Maine, Art and Mike Girard in their new cat Sloppy Joe's. Nuff Respect piloted by Jim Robinson with Bobby T-Man Moore at the throttles led the race until the 8th lap when they lost an engine due to header problems, yet managed to run 90mph on the three remaining engines to finish 4th.
ZeroDefect did it again with a fine run today and a win in the Super Limited Class. Laith is on a roll and looking good.
SBR did not have total race results at press time. Those should be available here tomorrow.
After the race I had the pleasure of viewing a video of the live television feed to Argentina and it was spectacular. In my opinion, no video coverage compares to the dramatic footage and skillful editing done by the Argentine camera crew!
