2011 IJSBA World Finals - PRO RUNABOUT RESULTSSunday 9th October 2011 (US Time)
Sam had very strong start but got tapped heavily by another ski on holeshot and broke the engine mount. It shifted about 50mm and also affected the pump. Despite the damage and lack of power, he made his way through the pack but not enough to finish in the ranks, therefore unfortunately won't be on the podium this year.
The Sam Harvey Racing Team worked hard to get the boat back on the start line after the hit in the GP class, and Sam is still carrying an injury ... however watching James Bushell from the UK win on the Les Cooke Sea-Doo brought back fantastic memories of 2009 when Sam so deservedly won the World Championship - he was the first non American and first Privateer to win the title ...
The Sam Harvey Racing team congratulate James Bushell on his World Championship titles Pro Runabout and GP runabout, Kylie Elmers (Australia) on Womens Poleski, and Steven Dauliach (France) for taking out the Pro Ski Opens. All non-Americans take the top titles this year.
