Due to the strict one design nature of Zapat Racing and the way in which it is enforced, a level playing field is created across the sport. This means that unlike other expensive and often elitist classes of powerboat racing, with their need for countless numbers of propellers and engine modifications, Zapcat Racing allows only one hull, one engine, two propellers and importantly one propeller guard … making the Zapcat R/R simple, safe and affordable!
The Zapcat R/R is the standard for all Zapcat Racing. We fit the Zapcat R/R with a short shaft 50hp Tohatsu outboard engine that has been tailored for our sport by a number of patented improvements made by us at Zapcat Racing HQ. The strict one design ethos of the sport means that the costs remain within the reach of the many and not the few.
Skill and ability is the leveller of our highly competitive championship that takes place in flat water to surf depending on the sea state and location. Nearly every championship to date has seen the Champion undecided until the last race of the year … something unheard of in other motor sports, another testament to the strict one-design foundations that Zapcat Racing is built on.
