For this race, I continued to work with Scott “Pyro” Raney and the U-37 crew (great guys and girls – REALLY positive about EVERYTHING), doing all the onboard video. We got some amazing stuff that no one had really seen before, and had a bunch of fun doing it.  It was a great weekend – J.W. even made the podium…

I was watching Heat 2A unfold Sunday morning with Steve David and the Oberto taking off into the lead when on lap two I saw Mike start to lift off and swung my lens towards him all the while yelling “Oh Sh*t!” Thankfully, Mike was out within 20 seconds or so and he was all right, but the boat was tweaked, losing the tails, rear wing and canard, and tearing up the cowling a bit. As I write this, the Formula team is working on getting the boat ready for Seafair – I’m sure Mike and the U-7 Graham Trucking boat will be there…

Scott “Pyro” Raney invited me to join the U-37 Schumacher Racing crew for the swing through Washington, doing the onboard video.  Had a great time, but was really bummed when J. Michael Kelly flipped the U-7 right in front of me, fortunatelycoming out of it unscathed.

Dan Foard shot and produced this introduction for the Statment Marine website using the GoPro Hero camera – particularly amazing is the “propcam” – a GoPro double-stick taped to the transom which stayed attached and brought back some very unique footage of the outdrives during this 100+ MPH race in the Atlantic Ocean!

J. Michael Kelly drove “The Boss” to a 2nd place finish in Heat 1 of the UIM GP World Championships on Lake Kairapiro, New Zealand on Feb. 7, 2009. What makes this video a little unusual is that The Boss has a clear canopy, allowing  a full forward view from inside the cockpit, providing a breathtaking view of the violent ride JMK’s subjected to.
