V8 SUPERBOATS - ROUND 4, 2012, SUPERBOAT CLASS:
The Superboat Class boats are powered by unrestricted capacity V8
engines. With manoeuvrability and acceleration critical there are many choices
available from the heavy 'big block' engines of nominally 676 cubic inch to 'all
alloy - small block' engines of nominally 500 cubic inch. Superboat Class boats
use methanol fuel.
