In powerboat circuit racing, lightweight race boats tear around a two-pin course together, dodging spray and wakes in a thrilling show for fans. Mercury Racing Apex Series competition outboards are the engines of choice in circuit-racing series around the world, including UIM Formula classes and APBA OPC tunnel boat racing, and endurance events.
In offshore powerboat competition racers compete against each other and the elements, battling the often-unpredictable wakes, waves and swells of the open water. Mercury Racing supplies race-prepared engines, drives, components and expertise to professional and amateur racers competing in a number of offshore classes and series worldwide.
Powerboat drag racing may be the most-elemental form of competition on the water – two boats, a standing start, and the first to the finish line is the winner. Mercury outboards power some of the quickest, fastest drag racers on the water in regional and national competition.
