Got a V-bottom or flatbottom boat you think is fast? Then you're in luck! The Formula V class allows racers to use any production based engine up to 100 cubic inches, with no modifications permitted. A "formula" is used to handicap the boats by weight. As a result, it's not uncommon to see engines from 50 to 100 cubic inches racing against each other on 13 to 16-foot boats. This class is raced mostly in the Midwest.
