Penalty costs Kip Brown in Columbia Cup

July 30, 2013

Nearly two weeks after Preston-based team Our Gang Racing celebrated Kip Brown and the 95 Spirit of Qatar’s Gold Cup win, the team was back in the state competing in the Columbia Cup.

The team could not duplicate the success it had in Detroit, though. It placed seventh in the final heat of the Unlimited hydroplane competition held in Tri-Cities.

Brown, the driver, was plagued by a one-lap penalty he received after he prematurely crossed the one-minute buoy.

The team will next compete for the Albert Lee Appliance Cup at Seafair in Seattle Aug. 2-4.
