COR Heads to Folsom!
The rebirth of Classic Outboard Runabout (COR) boat racing is alive and well. We completed seven circle boat races (Parker Thanksgiving Regatta, Puddingstone Memorial, Havasu GP, Parker Spring Classic, Long Beach Sprint Nationals, Isleton, Enduro 300) during the 2012 season.
The 2013 season is now underway with more races scheduled for the upcoming year.
Follow the race-by-race action and results by downloading the 2013 COR Driver & Boat High-Points Championships standings, updated as of 3/4/2013 or join the conversation on Race Events Forum found on the left-side menu.
The Thanksgiving Regatta in Parker Arizona was the COR 2013 Opener. Our first COR 2.0 Winter Nationals at Lake Ming was a big success. The Spring Classic at Parker is up next. You can check the 2013 Racing Schedule for our upcoming races and please feel free to join us in the hot pit during an upcoming boat race event.
Reaching back to the days of Mod VP racing in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, COR 2.0 and COR 100 boat racing brings legendary family-style performance hulls back into the limelight. Mod VP Tunnels, vee-bottoms and flat bottoms are eligible to compete.
This exciting West Coast series host a number of circle boat races each year with boats such as Hydrostream, Stoker, Eliminator, Baker, STV, Sleekcraft, Mirage, Liberator, GMT, Laser, Allison, Daytona, Triad, Hondo, Checkmate, and more. Check the Buy Sell Wanted Forum for your next race boat.
Most boat racers are running Mercury 2.0 Liter V6 outboard engines (121.9 c.i.) which are basically Black Max 150 hp outboards. Other brands such as Evinrude, Yamaha, Suzuki and others are also legal but must be under 130 c.i. (105 c.i. in COR 100) displacement.
This class runs under APBA Racing sanction and is design with a low cost entry and with speeds that are in the 80 mph range. Join in the fun, find a rig and run!
