Icom UK Support Top V24 Powerboat Team

Icom UK Support Top V24 Powerboat Team

Radio Communication distributor, Icom UK has recently secured a sponsorship agreement with one of Britain’s top Powerboat racing teams, RH Racing. Icom will supply this team who are current British Champions in the V24 class, with radio communication equipment for its powerboat and pit crew team. Icom have supplied RH Racing with an IC-M401 fixed VHF Marine transceiver, which is fitted into the console and a IC-M31 VHF handheld radio. Both radios will be used for communication between the powerboat and the Pit crew as well as the safety and rescue officers in race control.

The V24 series started last year and is quickly becoming one of the fastest and most highly contested powerboat series in Europe. The boats are relatively cheap to buy and run and being a single design race series, the competition is stiff which makes for awesome racing.

Team owner, Ricky Hill is currently the British champion for this class and has a wealth of powerboat experience having power boated for 25 years. His views about succeeding in power boating are quite simple. He said,’ to compete at the top level, you have to have the right team behind you with the right equipment and backup. I have always used Icom radios so there was no alternative in choosing my radio communications for my team.’

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager at Icom (UK) Ltd said,’ at the time of writing Ricky and his team have finished third in the European Championship, are currently tin the top 3 in the National Championship and are currently leading the V24 Championship. This is a fantastic achievement. We hope that he can maintain this success to the end of the season.'
