Default 2009 Gold Cup Hydroplane pics

I took a few hundred shots, but heres a few:



Took the turn a little wide...That photographer had his life flash before his eyes for sure. 6500lbs at 100mph (they are 160+ in the staightaways, but not in the turns)














Good old Dave Villwaulk (sp?) in the orange boat /sarcasm. Turned too wide, caused the other boat to turn wide and nearly hit his team mate in the other red boat, causing that guy to get washed out in a roostertail. I think they did give Dave a lane violation, however.
