In 1977 Ken Warby broke the Outright Unlimited World Water Speed Record on Blowering Dam N.S.W with a speed of 288.60 MPH. Ken returned in 1978 to set his second & current record of 317.60MPH, which to this day remains unbroken, Now 40 years on from Ken’s first world record, Warby Motorsport will again challenge for the Outright Unlimited World Water Speed Record, with a new boat & driver, Spirit of Australia II with Ken’s son Dave Warby driving.
Over the past 5 years the father & son team have been working side by side building the new Spirit of Australia II. The new boat is now completed with successful testing undertaken in July 2017 at Taree N.S.W. followed by two further weekends at the home of the World Water Speed Record, Blowering Dam N.S.W. The team will be coming back to Blowering for several more trials before attempting to break the record late this year - conditions and mechanics permitting! When they break the record, the boys will need some beer to celebrate so we have designed a sessionable mid-strength lager for the cause! For the first time ever, we have used sparing amounts of the all Australian Enigma hops to give it a subtle fruit punch and aroma, making the beer refreshing and smashable - just like a world water speed record..
The beer is available on tap and in stubbies at TRBC - we wish the guys luck during their next trial on the 11th and 12th of May!
