After a meeting last Friday between key Hotelplanner.com Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix organizers and Race World Offshore principals, the mid-March-announced plan for RWO personnel to handle the technical inspection portion of the Sunday, July 1, has been scrubbed. Budget issues to the tune of an additional $12,000 for RWO expenses and other issues led to an amicable parting of the ways between the primary parties behind the western Florida event, which is going on as planned under its original Powerboat P1/American Power Boat Association sanction. The news was announced in a press release today from Sarasota Suncoast Charities for Children executive director Lucy Nicandri.
