U-7 FormulaBoats.com II wins Regates de Valleyfield

Posted: Updated:

VALEYFIELD, Quebec - No deck-to-deck racing action at Les Regates de Valleyfield.  It was all two boat races, starting on opposite sides of the course and racing against the clock.

And no U-1 Miss Elam either.  A Friday crash and trip into the rocks sent the U-1 home for repairs.

In the end, it was the rookie, Mike Allen, piloting the U-7 FormulaBoats.com II beating out the U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto and driver Steve David in the finals.  David hit a buoy on the far side of the race course in the finals.

Sunday at Valleyfield finds the rookie beating the veteran.  Mike Allen in FormulaBoats.com II beat out U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto and Steve David to win the Regates de Valleyfield in duel racing.  ABRA had delayed awarding the win officially to Allen after it was discovered that the prop on the U-7 was larger than allowed.  After reviewing the situation, ABRA announced several days later that they were fining Allen's team, but not taking away the win.  It was determined that the prop started out the right size, but as it wore down, it enlarged.
