Irvine, CA, United States, 2010/03/23 - CP Pistons is proud to announce that it has signed a sponsorship agreement with the Unlimited Light Hydroplane Series, and will post over $6,200 in contingency payouts across all categories.
Contingency is posted in the following categories: categories Thunderboat (G), Unlimited Light (UL), Eight Cylinder and Four Cylinder Stock classes in 2010. “We are excited about our new partnership with the ULHRA series,” stated CP Piston’s Cindy Verkooij, “In addition to being the premiere series for competitive boat racing, it is an ideal proving ground for our racing piston technology.” Verkooij further adds some of this technology consists of sealing up cylinders better than anyone in the industry. New skirt shapes that we’ve developed have introduced the most stable piston available, which translates into better ring seal and reduced harmonics in the bore. This along with our in-house ability to create a 3D mirror image of any chamber on top of the piston, as well as our 3D underhead milling options give you the lightest, most stable high compression piston money can buy.
About the ULHRA series
The Unlimited Lights class, formed in 1995, grew out of a select group of Grand National Hydros that thrilled crowds in a series of exhibition races run with the Unlimited Hydroplanes in 1994. The thunder of the automotive engines caught the ear of fans and the attention of the Unlimited Hydroplane Racing Association which was looking to create a support class. They found a group of energetic teams with a desire to expand their racing options and their class. It wasn't long before the Unlimited Lights Racing Series was born.
Over the course of the next five years the series matured and offered some of the finest racing on the water. Close competition and a sound that echoes back to the classic days of Unlimited racing enhances the spectacle of any racing event.
At the end of October 2000, the Unlimited Lights began operating under the aegis of their own corporate identity -- the Unlimited Light Hydroplane Racing Association (ULHRA). The ULHRA has spent the last few years improving upon the proud tradition of the series.
