Advance Marine is a major sponsor and engine supplier for Impatient, the successful Hydroplane Race boat owned and driven by Andrew Petty.

Advance Marine has been a supporter of Andrew's Race Team for over 8 years, including Andrew's previous boat, a vintage hydroplane called The Bug.



While Impatient is currently running a highly modified, yet remarkably reliable 253ci Holden V8, (modified to 4.6 litres), work is currently underway on a 5 Litre injected engine. The new engine which is planned to launch at the Bundy Thunder race meet in November, is a 308 Holden with a DC&O individual throttle body injection setup and a Haltech ECU.

Andrew says: "Steve's knowledge from campaigning his own ski race boat (Rhythm & Blues) brings many years of experience to our race preparation and his attention to detail gives us the reliability needed to finish race after race at the front of the field."
