BRICK, New Jersery., June 6, 2013 –
Protechnologies, LLC Sponsors the 2013 Atlantic City NJOPRA Event
Atlantic City is one of the most pristine performance powerboat haven’s on the east coast and has been part and parcel to a long legacy of champion powerboat events held thoughout the years.
The waters off Atlantic City have been known for some of the most grueling powerboat events that surged with ground breaking technology, over-the-top excitement and was a global magnet to many great competitors from all over the world in offshore powerboat racing history.
In the 1980′s, powerboating was a highlighted spectator sport unlike any event the world had seen and bore names like Don Aranow, Tom Gentry, Fabio Buzzi, Stefano Casiraghi, Rolf Papke, Billy Martin, and Joey Calabro, just to name a few. These extraordinary men highlighted the power and thrill of running outside the lines and pushing through barriers of physical and mental abilities….with vessel and machinery pushed to the limits by true competition…..a true mans’ sport by all.
After its long absense and with many obstacles disallowing its return, the NJ offshore community is proud to be host to the NJOPRA event in Atlantic City for the Summer of 2013. Rolf Papke, 1987 World Champion Performance Powerboat racer said, ” I am thrilled and honored to support and sponsor the event that will credit and pay homeage to those who have come before us and to lead new competitors into the millenium to continue such a disntinct sport.”
The race is hosted in conjunction with the “Festival of Speed”, and will don a weekend of excitement beginning on Friday, June 21, with an annual NJPPC Poker Run, followed by a wounded warriors event for veterans, inclusive of an exotic car show, closed by the Offshore Race Debut of the decade.
Protechnologies, LLC is proud to be a part of the exciting history being made in Atlantic City, inspiring the champion and touching the hearts in all to Restore the Shore….
