Hi All. I had posted this same topic in 'Race Dates' and has had a few looks. The 25hp class used to be very strong in QLD. Its a good class for the kids who are between 16 and 86 years young and don't feel comfortable and or can't afford to go up to the big boats.
We are running some at the Bundy Club. Normally we share the track with the 850s, depending on boat numbers. There are some clips on you tube, search "clints wing boat bundy".
If you have a little tunnel or wing and a bigger boat there is no reason why you can't run both. It would be great to grow this fun and affordable class again.

If you have any questions please feel free to send me an email or give me a call on 0408 155 625.
All the best for 2017.
Clint.

Hi All. A fantastic day of racing at Bundy yesterday. We had a strong field of six competitors in the 25hp class. It made for a lively field.
I think we all had a great time and we spoke to a few people that have shown interest in putting a rig together for the next meet.
See you there.

Hi All, the 25s have grown into a viable and very competitive class again.
In march we 7 boats start and the May race last weekend we had 6. A couple of the Dads are even commandeering the kids J boats to join in.
There's nothing in it. 5 of the boats (including the Js) are starting with in 5 second of each other and its anyone's race.
The group we have up here are only doing around the 45mph but its terrific affordable racing.
Unfortunately because of cost, there aren't any registered in QAPBA. It would be good if there was a way to bring them back into the state titles.

Hi All. I have posted some race footage of the 25s from the May 2017 meet, on you tube.
If you're interested just search Bundy 25s on you tube and they come up.
I'd love to see footage of the 25s from the 1970s -80s if there is any out there.

Cheers. Clint.
