These are the “Big Boats”– 12’ wide, built of carbon fiber and other lightweight composite materials and weigh-in at around 2,900 pounds. The engines are blown V-8’s based on big block Chevy design, which is supercharged and kicks out 1500 horsepower, burning straight Methanol.
It’s the Wild West with the Grand Prix’s; few limitations, beyond the 468 cubic inch engine displacement. From there, it’s “run and gun” for the drivers who can use the ingenuity they want to get a leg up on the competition.
An exciting new feature for Quake this year will be the awarding of the Governor’s Cup, which will be presented to the overall high points winner of the weekend.
