COR 100 in Michigan

Forums:

Well i sent an email to my old stock outboard club that i used to race with to ask them to add the special events catagory to a race next year so the class can run.I have 3-4 rigs that want to race.I never even got a return email from them telling me yes or no.Apparently the club has enough money and doesnt want anymore.Oh well their loss.I am going to talk to Fred Miller about adding the 100 class next year at the Trenton Mi OPC race.Mabey that club would like some extra money from some new members.

Out west outboards are outboards... CORs and the Stocks work well together. Stocks run early while the water is calm. CORs can run even if the wind or rain blows up a bit. Gives more flexibility to the race schedule. Don't give up on your idea, that is how it all gets started.

I understand that your old club lacks interest in adding theCOR 100's to their agenda. Please, take the time out to contact your Region Chairman and explain your dilemma. If he needs answers, ask him to contact myself as COR Chairman. I would also like the opportunity to talk with Fred Miller about the COR class, as I have known Fred for many years and he is a very understanding gentleman. Rod Zapf COR Chairman (310) 488-3563.

Bill Boyes (region 11 chairman) called the other day. He told me that the COR 100's are on a race sanction in Michigan. The class may be gaining some roots in the mid west. Rod

Great news. I know the competition will be close. Back in the 70's lots of COR 100 type boats running on the east coast in the APBA. FJ class was single inline 6 merc or v4 omc with no trim allowed and single drivers. FS class was the same power but with trim and two people in the boat. In the beginning, if you were running over 60, you were doing well. In the later years the FJ boats were running in the low 80s. The Allison was fast but it was the Hydrostream Ventura 1, with lots of bow lift, that ruled the day in the heavier FS class.
