Blastoff Racing Returns to Cowes-Torquay-Cowes

Published on: 22/08/2019


The Blastoff Racing team have been busy preparing for their biggest race of the season, Cowes – Torquay – Cowes, this weekend.

Skippered by Dorian Griffith, Blastoff Racing is powered by twin Yanmar 6LY2A-STP 440hp turbo diesel engines and achieved a Marathon C Class world record speed of 88.47mph on Coniston water in 2016. 

Barrus’s own Will Stevens is the team’s travelling support engineer and has been working on the Yanmar engines to get an even better speed in the race this year.

“We’re are ready to race this weekend,” commented Dorian. “With our centre of gravity now at its peak and the Arneson drive units strengthened, we’re looking better than ever, and just can’t wait to get on the water.”
