The offshore Super Series Toronto race features more than fifty of the most talented drivers and throttlemen carving up the liquid track. Some are veterans in the sport, others innovators in the marine industry and others just addicted to the aquatic need for speed!
If you ever saw AMF Offshore Racing at a race venue, you heard the sweet sound of Turbines spooling up, thus it's no surprise the AMF Platinum comes armed with T53 helicopter engines-but WHO gets to make that #26 Princess whine?
THROTTLEMAN TURBINE #26 PLATINUM PRINCESS
Following in the footsteps of his father and uncle who used to race Sneaky Pete in the Hennessy Grand Prix and Brass Monkey races, Scott Begovich began racing boats in 1995 after purchasing a Jersey Speed Skiff named Double Trouble. In 2000, Scott moved into piloting and throttling a 24' Pantera, raced as GiGi Motorsports and Kean University in P5 Class of the APBA. To fulfill Scott's craving for speed he next stepped into Al Chesley's purple Warlock F1-52 Offshore Addition. Over the last years, Scott has proven himself to be a true champion taking home numerous first and second place honors in both the Pantera and the warlock.
Most recently in 2004 he won the Deerfield beach National Championship and the Key West Unified World Championship. In 2005 while continuing to campaign the Pantera in the SBI/APBA circuit, John Haggin, owner of AMF Offshore Racing put him behind the helm of his teams 51-foot T-53 Turbine powered Outerlimits. In the AMF Outerlimits, Scott stole the show with the red, blue and yellow marine machine b setting 122mph Performance Yacht Kilo Record at the Lake of the Ozarks Shoot-out, and on to break that at 126mph just months later during AMF's APBA sanctioned Kilo.
Clearly, Scott's racing resume has no limit, as this year he slides across the cockpit to push the sticks in AMF's T-53 Turbine powered Platinum Princess. Scott has also taken on a full-time position as Race Director for AMF Offshore Racing and when not out burning Jet A fuel, he resides in Jupiter, FL with lovely wife Liz and delightful daughter Olivia.
