Mike Grendell and his team gave a new look to their hydroplane while doing their annual general maintenance. It’s Alexe Pilon that made the design and did the paint job on the boat. The team wanted to use the same colors as the H-350 driven by Patrick Haworth.
Also note that the driver of the Bad Influence Doug Papp took 6th place in the 2016 HRL Championship. Being under the “Bad Influence” of the one that got him involved in the sport, Mike Monahan, will certainly help him in the coming HRL season and push him to the forefront in the Championship race in the F-2500 class.
