SATURDAY, October 3, 2015 - The Huntington Classic Regatta is on tap for five re-airings this month on SportSouth. The 30-minute race telecast has aired twice already this month, and is scheduled for three additional airings at 1:30 a.m. on October 6, 2:30 a.m. on October 17 and 8 p.m. on October 30 respectively. Fox Sports Ohio has not announced any additional reairs of the program.
Our efforts continue to finalize our 2016 wall calendars. Most of the photos we plan to use are in hand, but if you have a shot of our team's boat, driver or crew you feel would go nice in our calendar then please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to finish up the layout and send the calendar to the printer in the next few weeks so we have it back in hand and ready to distribute by mid to late November.
The folks at Extreme Powerboat Racing are designing us a new driver suit for our SST-120 program to compliment our SST-120 team's crew uniforms. The One Race Gear driver suits are so much lighter and more comfortable than traditional driving suits that we want to get one for our SST-120 races. We bought a One Race Gear driving suit for our F1 team last year and loved how the garment felt and looked.
We are waiting on an opening at Book Brothers Marine to get our F1 boat back on the operating table. We need to rebuild the fuel injection system after an electrical short at Bay City last summer burned everything up. Other than getting that boat back to full speed, both of our boats are really pretty much ready to race in 2016.
We may be wrapping our Freightliner toterhome and race trailer for 2016. A sponsor is in talks with us about showcasing their name and products on the hauler. We are currently awaiting from an artist the drawings of the wrap before moving forward on this project.
Just because racing has ceased for the season, there is still a lot going on behind the scenes aimed at getting us ready to race in 2016.
