Bridge To Bridge Race 2011

One of the best races for jetski's in New Zealand and anyone can enter.  Last years race was enjoyed by many and just a learning curve for others.. (that was us!)

What an exciting weekend - the classic build up to this event envolved late nights in the workshop and at the river tuning - still without enough time after literally a year of preparation. This is what racing is all about - pushing the limits to the max. Final times are up and while the overall win was down by more than a minute and a half from Ski M.D's record last year, the overall winner on the day belongs to JFK's on their Seadoo RXP - congratulations and enjoy the title of owning the fastest jetski in NZ for this years event.

Special congratulations to all who took part and most of you achieved awesome placings and had a fantastic experience! Tony Greene ( Ski M.D. ) came 2nd overall on his 2008 RXP, Ryno Grimbeck who had a fantastic race on his custom painted RXP, Andrew Green ( Ski M.D. ) on his 2011 VXR in the N/A class cleaned up some of the Kawasaki 300X's!!, Phillip Green who came 2nd in the naturally aspirated class on his GP1200R. There were a few battles on the Waikato this year. Our elation for the day was seeing 89.9 MPH on the GPS from the Yamaha SHO Cruiser, upstream, minutes before our engine called time out with internal gremlins, which gives some encouragement to continue to strive for bigger and better things next year even though it was an expensive day at the river. See you all next year!!

Special thanks to Jason Wiggan from Taupo who as usual makes the trip to do the pre race checks on all the ski's and is a valuable member of the Ski M.D. team.
