The entries are hotting up in Superboat 600 class with round 1 at lake Taupo set to commence in just a matter of days.
Mike Gerbic has put together a brand new American built Doug Wright hull powered by twin 300XS Mercury outboards and with the experienced Mike Knight at the helm they will without doubt be a competitive entrant.
No stranger to this class Mike Knight has driven the Barely Legal cat both in Australia and NZ but is perhaps better known for his championship wins in Formula Honda and Sports 200 classes between 2009 – 2015.
Mike Gerbic (throttles) has won multiple 60 mile overall and Sports 300 championships in the Espresso Engineers “bat” boat, he’s understandably excited and looking forward to the step up into 600 class on Sunday.
