X Games, supercross, motocross, rally racing, NASCAR and record-breaking stunts…he’s done them all.  In 2020, action sports legend Travis Pastrana will share the cockpit of the 47-foot Miss GEICO Victory catamaran with world champion throttleman Sir Steve Curtis.  Together, they will seek to clinch a world championship title during the 2020 World Offshore Championship Series. Pastrana plans to utilize his long-honed skills developed while racing on dirt courses, as he transitions to a liquid track with constantly changing conditions. Class ONE boats will compete in six world class races during the upcoming season.  Stops include events in Cocoa Beach, FL on May 17-19; Sarasota, FL on July 5-7; Fort Myers Beach, FL on October 10-12; and Englewood, FL on Novemeber 22-24. Class ONE consists of the fastest race boats in the world. These boats weigh exactly 11,750 pounds with sealed 1100 horsepower twin race engines governed by Mercury Racing to ensure fair competition. All of the teams use the same propeller dimensions. The 47-foot-long Miss GEICO Victory catamaran is made of carbon and Kevlar for high performance and can reach top speeds of 160 mph. 

With identical boat weights, engine horsepower, and propeller sizes, Travis, Brit, and Steve will work closely with world renowned crew chief, Gary Stray, to make adjustments to the boat setup, propeller pitch, and plans for precise course management. The Miss GEICO Team is expected to make numerous appearances on the winner’s podium during the 2020 season.
