We would like to congratulate the teams that competed in the 25th Annual ST. Clair River Classic this weekend in Michigan, especially the MTIs, which fared exceptionally well in the Super Cat class. NZ-11 ProFloors Racing, an MTI, came in first place, after enjoying a strong winning season after winning first place at the season-opening Cocoa Beach race and coming in second-place at the Lake of the Ozarks and Sarasota. Coming in third place was yet another MTI, Broadco, who is back in 2019 for their reunion tour. 

Aside from some delays caused by freighter traffic and weather, the 25th annual St. Clair River Classic was a roaring success, as a couple of dozen offshore race boats delivered the goods Sunday on the St. Clair River in Michigan. It was the fifth OPA race of the season, and the fourth collaboration with Powerboat P1 in its APBA Offshore Championship Series.

In the Super Cat class, NZ-11 Pro Floors Racing racked up another win for the season, repeating its first-place showing after taking the checkered flag at the season-opening Cocoa Beach race, and second-place finishes at the Lake of the Ozarks and Sarasota. The New Zealand team (with owner/driver Wayne Valder and throttleman Grant Bruggemann) are currently leading the class in high points. WHM Racing, Broadco and Performance Boat Center/Jimmy John’s finished in second, third and fourth place. Competitor M-CON rolled over about halfway through the Super Cat skirmish; team members Tyler Miller and Tyson Garvin escaped the 40′ Skater safely.

1st – NZ-11 ProFloors Racing
2nd – 5 WHM
