We’re looking forward to Thundercats 2018 and as soon as we have dates we’ll let you know

For those who don’t know, Thundercats are purpose built inflatable rubber catamarans fitted with a 5php engine, and manned by a driver and co-driver.  A quote from the Thundercats website describes the origins as: ” Back in the 80’s a slightly not normal South African decided to strap an outboard motor to a small rubber boat (known then as a pencil boat) and race them down the rapids… a few years later and we have evolved with purpose built 4m inflatable catamarans coupled with a 50hp motor..”

Watch these daredevil racers speed around the course, lifting their vessels up to 6m in the air as they pound the waves.

Here’s some action from the 2016 Thundercat Racing to whet your appetite.
