OFFSHORE POWERBOAT RACING events are located in some of the most tropical and vibrant cities in America. Race sites from Miami (South Beach) to Clearwater Beach and Key West, Florida to name a few. Race teams and fans enjoy the beachside venues, lush landscapes and very vibrant night life. Super Boat International has produced races in Miami and Key West for over 20 years. Great hospitality sites for corporate sponsors.
TEAM GASSE is one of the premier offshore race teams in the United States owned by Norwegian speed enthusiast, Tor Staubo. This year the team will campaign a near full season on the Super Boat International offshore circuit. The team, in it’s second season of competition, continues to entertain potential sponsors interested in joining a team that has international exposure and boasts the most recognized driver and throttleman in the sport.
COMPETITION in the premier class (Super Boat Unlimited) of powerboat racing requires state-of-the-art equipment. The #8 Ferrari-Red Catamaran is a 2010, 48′ MTI 2600 horsepower race boat. This “Super Cat” reaches speeds near 200 mph by using two of Mercury’s specially designed racing engines. The twin hull vessel includes the ultimate in custom rigging, safety equipment and digital electronics streamlined in a carbon fibre finish.
Powerboat racing fans attend powerboat and pokerrun events by the ten’s of thousands and enjoy the high performance action. Super Boat events in Florida average over 60,ooo people in attendance. The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout boasts the largest unsanctioned boating event in the United States. During this event, over 7500 boats are rafted to one another watching as boats make a 1-mile pass at incredible speeds along the Missouri bluffs.
THE GOOSE…respectfully named “The Angry Miss Ducktin” is the team mascot. Gasse (Goose in Nowegian) translates in English to … “Goose it”. Not a bad translation when used in motorsports. The team is named from Tor’s skydiving days when his team of divers would exit the plane and fly all around in disorganized pattern. Learning that a ‘Goose’ in flight has similar characteristics, he thought it appropriate to adorn the image with respect.
