“Grand Prix Racing drew the best of the best! Names like, Buck Thornton, Chris Bush, Johnathan Jones & Guido Cappolini. But, the ultimate champion of the International Circuit belonged to, Billy Seebold. Heavily sponsored by Bud Light, Bill Seebold, was Tunnel Boat Racing’s, Babe Ruth”
Pittsburgh, Pa August 7, 2016
Photo above: Rayner Blair seen sitting talks with Billy Seebold during the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta over the weekend. The boat in the photo is a vintage Seebold that was driven to many victories by the legendary Buck Thorton now fully restored in all its glory. Rayner plans to race the boat on the East Coast vintage circuit.
Restoration of the hull was done by Tennessee native and long time racer Gary Pugh who in his own right has also become a well known name among elite powerboat racers. Pugh Boat Works http://bit.ly/2bePRLK
