Powerboats will return

DESPITE a couple of spectacular crashes, the Australian Formula Powerboat Grand Prix was deemed to be a success.

Event organiser and crowd favourite Craig Truslove was so happy with how things ran over the weekend of racing he has already made plans to return to Grafton, with his powerboat, in 2011.

“The Clarence is such a beautiful waterway and is so wide. It suits what we do really well,” he said.

“Because of this, we hope to come back in 2011, ’12, ’13 and ’14.

“We had a heap of positive things said about the event, which was great.

“Hopefully the word will spread about the action and the uniqueness of the event and we will have an even bigger crowd next year.”
