The Gatsby Need for Speed- Super Boat International Races

By: JR
Super Boat International races are scheduled to take place in 7 markets across the country in 2011. This week they will be in Key West, Fla. Founded by John Carbonell in 1989, with more than 35 years experience as a powerboat events promoter in addition to 10 years experience racing powerboats, Carbonell uses his hands-on knowledge to attract some of the most competitive racing teams in the world.
Super Boat International is the only official national and international sanctioning body for offshore powerboat racing in the world. The series has attracted many celebrity racers over the years, including Don Johnson, Kurt Russell, Chuck Norris, Bruce Jenner and Jason Priestley. With an estimated 20 million race fans attending Super Boat International races and a significant increase in membership and attendance over the past three years, Super Boat International is poised for future success.
The rectangular racecourses average six miles in length, and the aptly named offshore boats power through the waves at speeds up to 200 mph. The action-packed races have attracted a large fan base, and super boats have even been highlighted in big-screen productions such as the 2006 hit, “Miami Vice,” starring Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell.
Also featured on NASCAR’s “Countdown to Green,” “The Today Show” and in Forbes magazine, the superboats continue to attract new fans and keep loyal fans coming back for more. This year will mark the 31th anniversary of the World Championships in Key West, Fla.
