Edox Miss Geico Enjoys Highly Successful 2011 Racing Season

by Ivo Jackson

Miss Geico Triple Crown LizardHeralded as one of the fastest powerboats in the world, Miss GEICO Racing dominated the 2011 US offshore powerboat racing season with eight first place victories. The world-renowned 50-foot neon green catamaran is probably the most recognized powerboat in racing today, with a superior team at the helm pushing Miss GEICO, and American offshore powerboat racing, to a new level.

Marc Granet - Scott BegovichOne of the winningest teams in offshore powerboat racing, the Miss GEICO racing team — founded by Yellow Pages heir John Haggin — and piloted by driver Marc Granet and throttleman Scott Begovich, is committed to excellence, and this commitment translates into superior performance in every race. This winning strategy has won myriads of fans to the electrifying Miss GEICO powerboat and racing team.

This year, the Miss GEICO racing team won almost every race in which they competed, with eight total wins including the Super Boat International (SBI) World Championship and the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) World Championship races. The Miss GEICO powerboat racing team are five-time SBI world champions and seven-time OPA world champions. The 2011 racing season didn’t disappoint, with wins throughout and a stellar finish.
