To celebrate the newest addition to Scotland’s racing calendar, the First Minister unveiled a specially-branded Inverclyde powerboat, which will compete in the Greenock event and others in the P1 SuperStock UK Championship next year at Scarborough, Gosport, Cardiff and Bournemouth.

Ms Sturgeon said: “This major event will attract tens of thousands of powerboat racing fans to Inverclyde, an area with a rich maritime history. Visitors to the area are guaranteed a friendly welcome and the event is expected to bring significant benefits to the local economy. The River Clyde will provide a magnificent backdrop for all the races.”
