Ft. Lauderdale, FL -
Infinity Racing is working feverishly to get the newest four engine entry to Superboat
ready for the Key West World Offshore Championships in November. Based on a 50' Jaguar
hull running four 572ci motors, the boat is being crafted by Dan Campbell to compete in
the SBR series for the 1997 season. Power is to be transmitted to two Arneson drives
with specially machined shafts running Rolla propellers to the water.
The Jaguar hull was built by Jack Clark utilizing lightweight floating "CoreCell" from Owens-Corning with a 2" core bottom and weighs 6000lbs as it comes from the mold. Once it is fully rigged, the expected gross weight will be 18000lbs, but it is also expected to attain speeds in the 160-170mph range.
