Formula Boats "hanging out" at Red Dot

|

The Formula Boats hydros (U-5 and U-7) will be wearing the name of their host from the past week at Seafair this weekend.

Red Dot Corporation, a long-time supporter of hydroplane racing from the unlimiteds to 1/10-scale models of unlimiteds, hosted the two-boat team of Ted Porter this week at their worldwide headquarters in Kent, reports Red Dot VP Gary Hansen.

"They are really nice folks and we are happy to host them," Hansen said. "They lent Nate a rudder for last week at Tri Cities. Both Formula boats will have Red Dot Corporation on them."

The all-red boats will have Red Dot decals aboard throughout Seafair weekend. It will be the third time that Red Dot has supported Formula's racing in Seattle. Red Dot, is also, of course, a supporter of Nate Brown's U-17 Our Gang Racing Team.

Red Dot is still an associate sponsor of the U-17, so yes...they are still a sponsor of the team.

But, yes, it is true that the U-17 is looking for a title sponsor.
