The Huski Racing team has announced that it has completed two days of testing in preparation for the upcoming 2022 offshore racing season.

The test sessions, which took place on Jan. 18-19 in Jensen Beach, FL, on the Indian River, were the team’s first tests since winning the APBA World Championship in Key West two months ago. The first day of the test program included initial setup work, with the second day of testing seeing high speed test runs with a focus on new drive shafts.

The team will unveil a new raceboat, featuring a new livery at the Miami International Boat Show, Feb. 16-20. The new 47′ Victory hull will be the team’s latest Class 1 entry, set to run alongside the 50′ Huski-Alegra Motorsports hull, which won the 2021 APBA World Championship. Huski Racing representatives will be present at the show to engage with attendees and sample the original Huski Chocolate milk and Huski Chocolate Protein drinks.

“Through the course of the test sessions, we completed a shakedown of new drive shafts on the boat after experiencing a failure in Key West in November,” said Sir Steve Curtis, the team’s throttleman. “We wanted to ensure everything was in good shape after last season and going into this season.”

The Huski Racing race team competes in Class 1 of the P1 Offshore Championship. The team claimed the 2021 APBA World Championship in its inaugural season of racing with Curtis throttling for driver Carlos de Quesada.

“We are excited to unveil our new Huski Class 1 boat at the Miami International Boat Show,” Curtis said. “This is a great sign of what’s to come for Class 1 as enthusiasm and interest grows across the sport, especially with multiple international teams looking to join. We are anticipating a strong fleet of Class 1 boats at the first race in Cocoa Beach, and we’re looking forward to releasing our full race calendar very soon.”
