Doha, Qatar race is a really, really big deal

|

“I think it’s much bigger than we perceive. A world championship, driver, team. For the sport, it’s much bigger. This could really offer a huge future that could really elevate the sport… for teams, for compensation. We need to do a great job, be great ambassadors. Use this as a giant pole vault for the sport in the future," said U-1's Steve David.

“It's very difficult to get the sponsorship dollars now (compared to past). If we represent ourselves well, make some friends, some corporate friends, I think we’ll be able to springboard this sport to a whole new gear,” said U-16's Dave Villwock. “This will be a very big deal for the sport and the future."

I really don't beleive that the Doha, Qatar race is such a big deal. You race in Mexico to try and get the same exposure. I think this is just for MONEY. The ABRA and APBA could do a better job in helping the boat teams in their promotions of their boats here in the USA.

What are you talking about? They dont race in Mexico...

Oh...I think I see what you're saying, you think they could goto Mexico to race and get the same exposure as Qatar? Well guess what, no ones paying them to go to Mexico.

The sport has no money, if you give them money, they'll go put on a show for you.

I think Sidney is saying that we raced in Mexico. It's true. We raced in Acapulco in approximately 1986. It's good for the sport to be racing in the Middle East. That's where they have a lot of money!
