Warren’s passion for boat racing begun when he co pilotted at the Tekapo Powerboat Club when he was 13 years of age in a 16ft Pride Panther with a 150hp on the back. Since that time he took every opportunity to hop in a race boat.
Fairview’s co-pilot is John Shand who brings a wealth of knowledge to the team having raced in both New Zealand and Australia in his own boat. Warren comments… “John is so easy to work with which makes boat racing effortless”.
