Sterling Performance is sharing a flashback to the Race World Offshore Key West World Championships! Both M-Con and WHM were battling it out for second place in the Supercat class. WHM ultimately took the World Championship title at the end of the week! Our engines gave both WHM and M-Con a competitive edge, and we cannot wait to see how they perform next season.
WHM Repeats, CR Racing Sweeps, Simmons Stays Perfect and More In Key West
The first contest on Wednesday and Friday this week at the Race World Offshore Key West Championships was more of an exhibition than a race. Take nothing away from the teams that came to compete—they have no control over who shows up to go head to head with them. But running uncontested to victory is simply that, running uncontested. Racing requires at least two boats in the same class.
The final race of the week saw the seven-boat Supercat-class—plus the mercifully condensed Extreme-class field of Team CRC—take to the water. Reprising their performance in Wednesday’s contest, WHM Motorsports’ Billy Mauff and Jay Muller led for most of the race in their Sterling Performance engines-powered Skater Powerboats catamaran but were chased hard and close by the new Dependable Marine team of driver Marty Siersma and veteran throttleman Mark Kowalski, who also run a Skater cat. Siersma and Kowalski stayed within a few seconds of Mauff and Muller much of the way, but a near blow-over between turns No. 1 and No. 2 near the end of the race knocked them off the pace and essentially out of contention for a victory on the day.
