Methanol Injected V8 Superboat Race Series Rampages Through Australia

methanol v8 superboatsIf you haven’t been turned onto V8 Superboats, then you’ve been sorely missing out on one of the craziest forms of motorsport in existence.

The boats cram a twin-turbo methanol-injected V8 behind the driver’s head and┬ámake an insane 1,600+ horsepower which is meted out through a hydro-jet propulsion system. This allows racers to move through the course at incredible speed, making snap turns that look as if the boats are racing on tarmac like a Formula 1 car.
