Resolution IT’s Powerboat Team ‘Resolution Offshore’ have taken first place for Class 3 in the Stanley Gibbons Investment Powerboat Series Championship. The Class 3 Championship title was awarded after a win at the ten race series final last weekend.
After a season full of trials and tribulations, with boats retiring throughout ‘Resolution Offshore’ kept their cool for the duration to eventually take the title. Despite a couple of issues resulting in retirement from races including; a throttle linkage snapping, gearbox problem and issues after hitting a passing passenger ferry’s wake injuring the navigator, the team fought their way to maintain a good lead throughout the season.
Even though the number of entrants had dwindled from the start of the season, ‘Resolution Offshore’ kept the excitement of the Championship alive in the penultimate event when the throttle linkage break dropped them to second place after being two minutes ahead, putting the title at risk. Come the final day, Resolution Offshore were on top form finishing first in both races 9 & 10 to take the title.
The team would like to also thank all of the sponsors who supported the team throughout the season including Le Mont Saint Garage, Offshore Power, Oracle Finance and Smith Signs.
