Devoigt zooms to second in titles

THE hills of Round Mountain, Cabarita, echoed with the sounds of high-powered boats as they blasted across the sharp-cornered track.

With 47 teams ripping through the course the boats offered performance without compromise as they zipped through a football field-size track in about a minute flat.

Tweed Valley Jet Sprint club president Daniel Devoigt was ready for the adventure, speed and passion the event commands.

On Saturday Devoigt and his navigator, Vicky Burrell, went full-throttle in the Dash for Cash event and came third.

It was a great weekend all around for Devoigt who came third in the Australian title event yesterday after beating 12 other teams in the 350cc class and progressing through three rounds from the top six shootout to the top three.

Devoigt also clocked his personal best yesterday at 54.3 seconds which shaved 1.5 seconds off his time.

The recent success should ensure Devoigt second place in the Australian points class and Queensland points class.
