2014 UIM XCAT World Series – Season Review

Simply put, the XCAT boats are multi-hulls made of advanced carbon technology comprising of two outboard engines with upto 6,000cc of horse power and the minimum length allowed is 7.6 metres and a maximum of 10 metres. There is also a weight allowance with each boat enabled to be 1,755 kgs along with the stipulation that 110 kgs will be added per metre for boats longer than 7.5 mts. These boats are capable of touching speeds of 120mph with their V6 engines.

The reasons for this huge popularity are many, and prominent among these is the fact that XCAT racing is the most challenging, it has the largest international contingent, the biggest number of international teams competing and drivers in the world of powerboat racing from far-off Scandinavia to the USA and Australia.
In addition, the WPPA — Promoters of the series — ensure that they take in some of the most glamorous locations and venues on the globe, giving viewers a unique and entertaining experience during the season.

This looks SO exciting – seems to be some folks who do not want this to be seen in the USA – like when Rupert M. bought my fav. network “SPEEDVISION” and stopped showing races like this to be 23 hour a day NASCAR – sad –
WHY? Because speed boat drivers like me have a new idea to run outboards on liquid Hydrogen and Oxygen to exhaust pure water AND – well this seems to be made secret because 6,000cc could give power peaks of 6,000hp – shhhh Arab sponsors DO NOT want to hear about this as they wreck the global economy dumping cheap crude oil!
