The 54-year-old Gold Coast man is one of a team of four heading across the Tasman later this month to compete in the New Zealand Offshore Powerboat Racing Series 2010. The group, who call themselves Team 3, consists of Nugent, the driver, New Zealands Craig Archer, on throttles, Adam Gilbert, the powerboat owner, and Nathan Heymink, the engineer. The team will race in the premier category against four other New Zealand powerboats during eight rounds. The 9.7m (32ft) carbon fibre catamaran Nugent will drive in New Zealand has been imported from Dubai and is powered by twin Mercury 525 EFI V8s. Last year, the team completed the Australian calendar and they are hoping to smash the competition in New Zealand. Nugent said power-boat racing required a lot of trust between the driver and the throttle operator who worked together to control the vessel. The first of eight races kicks off on January 31 at Taupo, in the central North Island, and will conclude in Auckland on May 8.
