Next to its annual Offshore World Championship in Key West, Fla., Super Boat International’s Sarasota (Fla.) Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix is SBI’s biggest race in any given season.
Thanks to its long history—this year’s race will mark the event’s 30th anniversary—and a number of offshore powerboat racers who call Sarasota home, the race typically attracts a larger field than the popular and still-growing SBI Nationals in nearby Clearwater, Fla., in September.
Scheduled for July 3-6, the 2014 Sarasota Grand Prix isn’t just shaping up to have another big turnout, but to offer excellent battles in several offshore racing classes. Here are four categories that are looking hot and worth watching.
