What is Thundercat Racing?
Thundercat Racing is based on a 400 meters X 200 meters 'M' circuit that has five turn buoys including a chicane. This close action racing produces an adrenaline sport that is exciting and thrilling for both racers and spectators. The design, development and technical input has led to a new bread of quality boats with racing pedigrees that reach extreme speeds and out maneuver any other waterborne boat of a similar size. The boats are designed to plane quickly across the water allowing the hull to ride on a cushion of air bubbles reducing the wet surface and lubricating the contact between vessel and water. "If NASA were to design a lilo it would be a Thundercat."
How did it start? Thundercat racing has grown massively popular in many countries across the globe. South Africa is a country with barely any winter, endless days of sunshine, dangerous rivers and huge offshore surf. In the early 80's the first motorized inflatable race boats were created by local pioneers that had been searching for a sport that could test the extreme sea conditions of this vast country. The development originated from life saving monohull surf rescue crafts that were designed to use in a variety of sea conditions from flat waters to large breaking surf. Racing proved very unstable and the shallow capability's caused great control problems which were solved by the ingenious fully inflatable catamaran tunnel hull design. The boat design has undergone dramatic evolution with these finely balanced boats progressing from rivers to sea, finally battling South Africa's large breaking surf. The boat technology has greatly improved. since these early days with the sport crossing the oceans worldwide causing great levels of interest, thus the birth of Thundercat Racing UK.
