Group B Class

Group B  is  the  development  class  in  the Jetsprinting Championships (formerly known as Lites). Among the three classes, Group B's,  Stinger Group A’s and Mouthfresh Superboats, the boat hull itself can be exactly the same, and often boats change between classes as owners move up, or older boats are sold on and recommence their racing life in another class.

Group B boats are powerful racing machines. With around 500 horsepower (375KW) from their 6700 cc V8 Engines (412 cubic inch) or L98 6 litre aluminium block Chev, they pack a punch as the entry level in Jetsprinting.  Group B's  is  a  great  way  to  begin  your Jetsprinting career.
