38th Annual Fort Lauderdale to Key West Race
Hap Fauth and his Bella Mente Racing team started off 2013 with an impressive victory in the annual 160 mile drag race to Key West before the Quantum Key West 2013 event. The Judel /Vrolijk designed IRC 72' Bella Mente took advantage of favorable conditions ahead of a cold front to finish in just under 13 hours. Team Bella Mente captured the line honors award as well as three more trophies including the Committee’s Trophy for Best Overall Performance.
After Key West, Bella Mente heads to Antigua for the RORC Caribbean 600 and then over to Spain for early summer racing in the Med.
