New blood on Grafton Power Boat races podium
Formula Power Boat media manager Mike Cleary said three first-time winners in their classes had turned the usual order of things on their heads.
Tasmanian Todd Leary broke his duck in the Formula 2 class, Victoria's Jason Heaney won a race in the Formula Optimax and Brock Choen, at just 18-years-old, was a popular winner in the Formula 3 racing.
"The usual suspects didn't turn up," Mr Cleary said of the two days of racing.
"Instead, we had three new winners on the podiums, something that normally never happens.
"Because of the volatility of the racing, the championships in each class cannot be decided until the final race."
Mr Cleary said Grafton had surprised him with its support for the weekend of racing.
"Over the two days I think we had 1000 people here, which given we didn't have much promotion, was pretty amazing."
Full results from the weekend will be in tomorrow's paper.
