V.S. SPEED 2101M Marine Engine

The new and exclusive V.S. SPEED 2010M super long stroke .21 marine engine is based on the very powerful O.S. Speed R2101 engine and is an extraction of the world famous OS Max precision and technology together with some additional 'Rody' touch and development, equipped with a V.S. Spec water cooled head.

The V.S. SPEED 2101M is equally suited for a gearbox application in FSR-V/O boats but also direct drive boats such as FSR-H outrigger hydroplanes (especially the latest generation 3-point riggers).
This engine is intended for "EXPERIENCED" users.

NAVIGA 2015 FSR World Championships

NAVIGA has now made some more official statements that there indeed will be an NAVIGA FSR World Championships being held from August 1 to August 12 2015 in Germany.

This is their official statement made in January about the event - LINK.

Back in January most of us believed that it was just "talk" from NAVIGA (buying time so to speak) but it seems there was more then that behind their statement. It seems there are several clubs under the German Federation Nauticus that has joined forces and will make it happen in 2015. See below.

Cool #2

Another Cool Japanese rigger. This one seems to be some sort of a record-trial type as there's not a lot of room for the fuel tank (for heat racing). :)
