Competition Overview

Mercury Racing was forged in the heat of competition. The will to win is embedded in our DNA. We live in a world that is high horsepower, high compression and high octane. Pick a discipline, and we’ll see you at the finish line – offshore, speed runs, endurance, circuit racing. Mercury Racing competition sterndrive and outboard engines set the pace. We are racers.

 

Apex Series

360APX-Auto-Play

Win. Wide. Open.

Mercury Racing is more than a name. The heat of competition warms our soul. Technology of the future excites our imagination. This passion defines the new Mercury Racing Apex Series, pure competition outboards designed to perform at the pinnacle of closed-course racing – the quickest, fastest, smartest four-stroke outboards to ever boil the water. There’s only one way to lead to the finish line. Wide Open, of course.

A New Way to Boil Water

The new Mercury Racing 360 APX, a potent four-stroke V8, is designed specifically for boats competing on the UIM F1H2O World Championship.

Grass Roots Drag Racing

The UMPBA safety boat is a custom Ambush SS 1756 powered by a Mercury Racing 60R outboard with tiller steering.

An Intro to Hydrodynamics

There are two basic ways to increase the top speed of a powerboat: add power or reduce drag. Finding a reduction in drag can have a surprisingly significant impact on speed, and basic physics tells us why.
