Spectre take clean sweep to announce championship ambitions in Sarasota

Despite running only three races it was an eventful weekend of racing in Sarasota as Spectre produced a stunning display to remain unbeaten.

Craig Wilson, who drove GEICO to four victories and a second at the 2016 SuperStock USA Championship finale, put in yet another scintillating performance to sit atop the podium at the end of the weekend.

Marine wildlife holds put paid to any chances of completing the fourth race that could have seen Spectre close the gap on championship leaders Frank & Al’s Pizza even more.

Visit Jacksonville put a disappointing round in St Pete Beach behind them to finish second, whilst three-time champions Team Barbados secured third spot ahead of Frank & Al’s by just one point.

Visit St Petersburg/Clearwater and GEICO tied on 36 points for the weekend meaning that the former now slip to third in the title race, 11 points off the pace going into the final round.

There was plenty of drama in race three as FJ Propellers and Southeastern Lighting Solutions both had identical hull issues as the fibreglass underbody broke up mid-race.

Sarasota Ford could only manage one completed race and once again prop up the overall weekend standings with just nine points.

The final round in Islamorada on 19/20 August will now host five races to ensure the championship is decided across a total of 20 races.

The 34th Sarasota Grand Prix Festival will once again welcome the SuperStock USA Championship on June 30 and July 1.

The finale of the 2018 SuperStock Championship will take place ahead of the Fourth of July weekend as powerboat racing and jet ski racing team up for a weekend of speed and power in front of hundreds of thousands of fans gathered on Lido Beach.

Located on Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast, Sarasota County provides the quintessential white-sand beach getaway, perfect for absorbing the noise, power and excitement of a double-bill of world class powerboat and jet ski racing.

Dubbed the "Home of the American Circus," Sarasota County served as the headquarters for the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus for 75 years, and fans can experience its special culture first-hand by following the circus trail or catching a performance by one of two local circus companies.

For more information on visiting Sarasota County, visit www.visitsarasota.org or call (800) 522-9799.

Last season Sarasota played host to the penultimate round of the 2017 SuperStock USA Championship as Spectre made their championship credentials clear with a clean sweep of victories.
