When the green flag flies for today’s Super Cat-class contest—the second of two races in the 2022 Race World Offshore-produced Offshore World Championships presented by Performance Boat Center—the Justice League Skater Powerboats 388 catamaran will have a new cockpit crew. Marc Granet of the Class 1 df Young team will drive, and Justice League crew chief Bobby Adams will throttle.

The cockpit change means Richard Davis and Cory Shantry, who piloted the cat in Friday’s race before it was sidelined with a mechanical problem and ran the 400-class Justice League Cigarette V-bottom in today’s Bracket 400 contest with owner Don Urfer, won’t be running the Skater catamaran this afternoon.
The decision to move Granet and Adams, both of whom were members of the former Miss GEICO team, into the Justice League Super Cat raceboat came out of yesterday’s test session.
The Super Cat race will be a first for Adams.
“With our Class 1 Mystic Powerboats cat out of action for Sunday’s race, I tested the Justice League Skater, one of the former STIHL raceboats, yesterday with Bobby,” Granet explained. “He has put in about 30 hours of testing in the boat and ran the boat well. It’s always been a very fast boat.
“But don’t look for us to be in the hunt—there will be no heroics today,” he continued. “Today will be about getting Bobby some real racing experience, getting around the course safely and learning the dynamics of teamwork between driver and throttleman. It sounds simple, but anyone who’s raced in Key West knows how difficult that task is.”
