It's Official: US Navy joins lineup of Unlimited Hydroplane sponsors for 2008

Posted: Updated:

Some big news out of Greg O'Farrell's team lately.  First, they launched the U-48 last year on a West Coast swing with Hydropane and Raceboat Museum director David Williams behind the wheel.

Then, they went out an acquired a new boat, "Lucky," one of Fred Leland's old hulls.  They picked up Brian Perkins as driver of the U-50 after he lost his ride when the U-21 Freedom Racing team decided to pull out.

Then, they teased us with a new gold and blue paint job, hinting at a sponsor.  Now, they've made it official.  The US Navy would be the season sponsor for the U-50.

Finally, they announced they'd run the entire circuit.

Good luck in 2008!
