R&D T1 Turbo System
Ultra 310 Recreational/Offshore

Kawasaki Wins with R&D T1 Turbo System

They say that it was inevitable – just a matter of time. Well, Sunday was the day, and the time was 51:21 for Kawasaki Factory pilot Craig Warner to make the blast from Queen’s gate, Long Beach to Avalon and back on his R&D Turbo powered Kawasaki Ultra 310R, smashing the previous race record of 54:32 set by Billy Womack back in 2005. Craig Warner did have help via motivation from Canadian Mike Klippenstein on his equally R&D Turbo equipped Yamaha FX SVHO racecraft, as the two were engaged in an epic battle on the Pacific Ocean, only a stone’s throw from each other at the 40 mile mark, when Mike suffered an auxiliary fuel tank malfunction ending his bid for victory. This opened the door for PWCOFFSHORE.COM’s Mark Gerner, also on a R&D Turbo powered Kawasaki Ultra to secure second overall with an equally impressive time of 51.52.

Congratulations Craig, Mark, and Mike on your outstanding performance.
