MANATEE

Forecasters expect a comfortable 74 degrees on Feb. 9 for the fifth annual Bradenton Area River Regatta, which promises to bring a lot more racing action to the Manatee River this year.

The Powerboat Superleague’s Formula 2 racers kick off their season once again on the river and joining them for the first time will be the kickoff season for the league’s Formula 3 series.

Formula 2 boats can reach speeds in excess of 100 mph in five seconds, accelerating to top speeds of 120 mph. While the Formula 3 boats are slightly slower at 90 mph, the action is just as intense on a course drivers have to come love.
