Hervey Bay Independent : 4th December 2014
Supercharged weekend draws big crowds to the Bay’s shore Last weekend’s Offshore Superboat Championship saw thousands of tourists and residents take to the water’s edge to watch the nation’s fi nest seafaring racers battle it out for supreme speed. It was a massive weekend for all involved, and at the end of the day the winners were grinning from ear to ear. Global Racing came away with the AUS 1 Championship title, Navy Health won the Supercat Extreme, Team 3 came fi rst for the Supercat 1000, Mancine Cosmetics won the Supercat 600 and The Loaner won the Supercat 400. Both the pole position shootout on Saturday and the fi nal race on Sunday were spectacular viewing, however, the event didn’t go perfectly for all contestants. In total, fi ve boats failed to fi nish over the course of the weekend. Street-side markets on the Esplanade drew big crowds as well, offering everything from unique arts and crafts to scrumptious handmade sweets and icy treats. “It’s been really positive and we’re looking forward to the next event,” Councillor for Events, Sports and Recreation, Darren Everard said. Clockwise from left; Global Racing takes out the AUS 1 Championship; the Mills family get busy cooking their delicious Dutch pancakes at Saturday’s esplanade markets; The Loaner and Spirit of Mackay are towed through the streets during the esplanade parade; and supercharged classic and muscle cars of every make and model rev their engines for a huge crowd of fans. 30% UNTIL 31 DEC LENS OPTIONS OFF OFFER AVAILABLE FOR ALL HEALTH FUNDS INCLUDING: Hervey Bay Central: 4124 5602, Hervey Bay Pialba: 4128 4833.
