The great Italian F1-V8 racer Kicco Vidoli.

So many very good memories from racing Kicco in the F3 and the F1-V8 class.
A gentleman and a very tough driver. Always with a smile on his face.
Kicco won in F3 and F1-V8 1985 driving the #19 Molinari/Nordica/Evinrude V8.
We lost Kicco a few years ago in a boating accident but he will always be remembered as a good friend.
A mix of pictures.

A visit from “Super” Bertil Wik yesterday.

We started racing in Sweden back in the early seventies.
We both used Evinrude outboards in the Offshore E class and circuit SE class.
Even raced the famous Roslagsloppet Offshore Race together in my Piraya/Evinrude FT-19s in 1976.
Pretty funny to think back..Bertil lost the paper chart in the start but we found the way to Oregrund anyway..and was to early, the race headquater in Oregrund did not expect us up there so fast. Our #1 Piraya was flying.
Bertil was then racing Mariner for many years and got the nickname Super-Bertil.
Winning everything in the SD class.
After that a Mariner V6 in the FONDA series and won races in the ON class

In 1985 Bertil raced the F1-V8 class with Pro-One and did win the Belgium GP in Antwerpen.
Bertil was extremely good as a driver and did know how to get a tunnel race boat to go fast.
Thanks for stopping by Bertil.

Jackie Wilson’s Hodges/Cosworth V8 from 1978

The first four pictures is from Tavares, Florida last weekend, next picture is me and Jackie having a good time in the Tavares Sandbar.

Last two is from Bristol 1978

This boat was raced by Jackie in Bristol and some other places in Europe 1978.  Jackie finished fourth overall in Bristol but could not keep up with the outboard powered boats in the same OZ class.

Later Jackie even raced the boat in the USA.
