Only one week to go to the Lancashire Grand Prix,at Carr Mill,near St.Helens.                            This is the second event in the Powerboat GP British Powerboat Championship 2016, the first was held at Oulton Broad ,Suffolk earlier in the month.  566                                                                           I am particularly excited about this meeting as it will be my first visit to Carr Mill.I have been watching and photographing powerboat racing for about 40 years visiting most courses in this country and some in Europe,so thought it was about time I went here. 385                       The winners of the first event,Colin Jelf,Sam Whittle,Ben Jelf and Thomas Mantripp will be looking to extend their lead in the championship ,but all the other drivers will  be flat out to stop that happening.With the courses at Oulton Broad and Carr Mill being so different, different boat set ups will be needed so that could bring other boats into the equation.If there is one thing I have learned over the years it is that no one is sure of a win till the chequered flag drops,one mistake,one patch  of rough water,one gust of wind and the positions in the race change in an instant,that is one thing I love about powerboat racing.                                                                                                                                                                               I hope everybody has a great weekend and I hope to see you at the other events in the Powerboat Gp British Championships,and at The Powerboat GP European Championships at Stewartby,near Bedford in September .                                                                                    Bob.
