BEHIND THE WHEEL OF 222 OFFSHORE
Nissan Motorsport Team owner Todd Kelly swaps the track for the water next week when he takes the wheel of the Class One Superboat, 222 Offshore.
Powered by twin 750HP engines, the 12m Offshore Powerboat hits the water in the last round of the Australian Offshore Superboat Championships in Hervey Bay, Queensland, on the 27th and 28th October. Principal driver of 222 Offshore, Darren Nicholson steps out of the boat to attend to racing commitments in China, handing the wheel over to Todd for the final round.
“Todd came to Lake Macquarie last week and had a run in the boat and he did a great job. He’s been around boats for as long as he’s been around cars, so we’re extremely comfortable and happy to have Todd in the boat and take over my duties while I’m away,” Darren said.
222 Offshore competed on the weekend in the Lake Macquarie Offshore Superboat Championship where the team extended their lead in the Australian Championship.
The Hervey Bay Offshore Superboat Championship consists of a pole shoot out on Saturday and two races on Sunday and will be the final round of the 2018 Australian Championships.
