ARRIVED ON SATURDAY AND WOKE UP TO GO SEE FOR THE FIRST TIME THE NORWAY GRAN PRIX OFFSHORE RACE! :beer: (STILL TRYING TO GET USED TO THE SUN GOING DOWN ALMOST AT MIDNIGHT AND COMING UP AT 4AM...THAT IS JUST CRAZY BUT COOL)

THE PAPERS TALKED ABOUT THE VICTORY TEAMS BUT MY MONEY WAS ON NORWAY.

AT FIRST THE 2 DUBAI VICTORY TEAMS LED UNTIL THE NORWEGIAN TEAM BEGAN TO KICK BUTT AND GO FULL THROTTLE ON THE THE LAST TURN. AT ONE TIME THE FRONT NOSE OF THE VESSEL GOT SOME AIR AND ALMOST FLIPPED, BUT THE THROTTLEMAN CONTROLLED IT. ON THE NEXT TURN THEY TOOK FIRST PLACE. :beer:

CONGRATS AGAIN TO THE NORWEGIAN TEAM:
UGLAND OFFSHORE RACING
INGLE BRIGT AARBAKKE
AND THROTTLEMAN JORN TANDBERG
AND THE REST OF THE CREW.

HERE ARE SOME PICTURES. I WILL UPLOAD VIDEOS LATER :grinpimp:

NORWAY ROCKS!:beer:
