Events are planned the length and breadth of the country from Littlehampton right up to the far North-West. With strong sales at the 2002 London International Boat Show as well as all the returning drivers from the 2001 season, the Zapcat organisers are confident they’ll have more boats

than ever lined up for the first event in 2002. Tony told us; “ I’m really looking forward to helping introduce this great new sport to a wider audience across the UK. The National Zapcat Race Series is the hottest addition to the extreme watersports scene in this country and I know I’m going to enjoy being a part of it. ”
