This will be the team's first season racing in Formula 2. There boat is powered with a low-emission Mercury OptiMax 200 XS SST motor. The boat is 16 feet long, weighs 1150 lbs including the driver, and composed mainly of wood with a carbon fibre safety cell.

Tunnel boat racing is unlike any other form of racing, each lap is different. Drivers are not only competing against each other but also the ever-changing water and wind conditions. Boats reach the turn buoy at up to 120 mph (193 kph) and in a split second; they accelerate out to the next one. Drivers can experience up to 4G´s of centrifugal forces as they maneuver around a turn buoy. The team will compete in both Canada and the USA and are working on some European dates.
