Formula Returns to Offshore Racing

People often forget that Don Aronow's first "Cigarette" was actually a Formula 233 deep-V (see photo at left). While Don had moved on to grow and sell several high performance companies, the Formula tradition has continued on with his original vision. Over the years, the Porter family has kept the Formula legend alive by continuing to strive for performance perfection, something that Don would be proud of today.

With that in mind, it was good to hear that Ted Porter, vice president of Formula Powerboats, has announced the formation of a new team to compete on the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) Series presented by GEICO. This new team, named “Formulaboats.com”, will use the 382 Formula Fas3tech, which has several national and world titles on its resume. Tabbed to be in the cockpit are Scott O’Connor of Bradenton, FL and Trent Weyant of Palm Coast, FL. both from TnT Racing. Scott and Trent bring several national and world titles to the team as well as achieving the first ever Triple Crown, obtained by winning the Florida, National, and World Championship in the same season.

While Formulas are seen all over at poker runs, and are widely acclaimed for their comfort, safety, quality and ability to handle rough water, they will have some work to do to to make it to the top of the podium in OPA.
