Defending New Zealand SuperBoat champion and ENZED Sponsored Peter Caughey has taken home victory in round 1 of the 2017/18 championship aboard his new Sprintec boat. Caughey was consistently the fastest throughout the whole day, eventually coming home with victory by a comfortable margin. Coming in to the event, Caughey was cautiously optimistic of a strong performance, however was left mightily impressed with the new package.
“It was a bit of a shock to me too that the boat put up such a good pace, as it’s still got a lot of potential. We learned heaps today about setting it up, and the whole ENZED team was busy, downloading data, fine-tuning, and they’ve done a fantastic job. Having them do so much prep frees me up to decide how I want the boat to be, and they get on with making the changes, which is a privileged position to be as a team owner and driver,” said Caughey.
The victory provides Caughey with the perfect platform to launch towards an unprecedented 12th New Zealand championship.
