JMK back in New Zealand


American unlimited hydroplane driver J Michael Kelly arrived for the first round in Tauranga and drove Peter Knight senior's boat, The Boss, which has not been on the grand prix racing scene for three years. Used to the bigger, more powerful unlimited hydroplanes where he has set 19 world records in the past four years, Kelly (127 points) has not taken long to adapt to the smaller grand prix hydroplane. And, since flying back to New Zealand on Thursday he has made some changes to have the boat ready for tomorrow's finals.
