Team REDS Wins 2nd Place at the 2013 Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix
Sarasota, FL – Aquanew’s Watt-Ahh® sponsored the Team REDS Superboat Extreme (1-17) that won 2nd place at the Suncoast Grand Prix last weekend.
Thousands of race fans watched from Lido Beach or via international live streaming while the three-man team – under the canopy of their 36’ Spectre, dual 900 hp engines – competed against four other boats: Lucas Oil, Twisted Metal, Airway and Instigator. Team REDS (Throttles Eddie Tamberino, Driver Nate Hunt and Navigator Zach Bush) was one of only two boats in the Superboat Extreme Class, after 12 ¾ laps (over 70 miles) that received the checkered flag.
While the course was hot, the Watt-Ahh® patrol boat towed one of its competitors with an engine problem to a safe area away from the other racing boats.
Rob Gourley of AquaNew said it was definitely an “AHHH! Weekend” and he extended his appreciation to the other co-sponsors for Team REDS including Charles Schwab, Best Western Plus – Siesta Key, Suncoast Motorsports and Morton’s Gourmet Market of Sarasota, FL.
