Oxfordshire based Dorian Griffith was almost born into Powerboat Racing when at the tender age of 8 years old his parents, Richard and Sue Griffith bought a Royal Cruiser IV and decided to enter the 1969 Round Britain Powerboat Race, from then on Dorian had Powerboat Racing in his blood.
Blastoff Racing was formed initially to compete in the 2008 Round Britain Powerboat Race.
After a tough few years of developing the boat, success was to follow.
Blastoff established a Marathon Class C record at 83.49 mph on Lake Coniston in late 2015 and then achieved a second place overall in the 2016 Cowes Torquay Cowes.
After successfully campaigning the Fountain hull with diesel power, it’s all change for 2021.
Blastoff Racing will be racing an Ilmor powered Cougar R12 Viper RIB at speeds over 100 mph!
