Florida, 4/21/2014. Rick “Wheels” Bieluwka’s and Rollin’ Vengeance Team competed in the inaugural 2014 Super Boat International Race Circuit. With ‘Wheels’ on the throttle and Driver, Mike Fosse maneuvering the shoals; what the team lacked in wins was made up with unbridled enthusiasm. Also, competing in the same category were The Hulk/Redline Oil, Top Starz Energy Drink and Porta Products placing wins on the podium in that order. See Photo Gallery-New’s Section of RollinV.com.
Having been a top contender for over a decade in the Superboat Stock Category on the SBI Circuit (Superboat.com) Rick ‘Wheels’ Bieluwka has garnered numerous first place and podium wins. He confirms he is already gearing up for Cocoa Beach, Florida – May 16.
On the top of the Superboat feeding frenzy was Superboat Unlimited’s, Gasse, CMS and Lucas Oil/SilverHook. Geico’s little green geckos must have been hiding under Englewood’s pristine, sun-washed boardwalk as they went missing on the finish line.
Inspired by the past and built for the future, Rollin’Vengeance underwriters included AlloyCars, Inc. makers of high performance alloy aluminum sanctioned automobiles. The collection features the hand-crafted 550 Spyders, ‘James Dean’s dream car’, the ‘Uhlenhaut’ 300 SLR Silver Arrow, a Formula 1 Legend and available for pre-order as the most expensive sanctioned car in the world. Recently added to the AlloyCars roster of road ready racing legends is the Shelby AC 427 Cobra.
VaporMones™, the only scientifically engineered, non-nicotine ‘vaping’ product with direct response olfaction was introduced at the 2014 Inaugural Rollin’V EcoVillage. The scent based behavioral modification products VaporMones™ utilizes specific olfaction “trigger scents” as the stimuli to create profound positive mood and behavioral responses through traditional vaping pen devices.
Aloe Infusion offers a refreshing alternative to the unpronounceable chemical components found in most of today’s over-the-counter beauty products. Eli Goldberg and Jason Doe brings to women (and men) a product that refreshes and renews the skin with an organic infusion of green tea, gotu kola, horsetail, dandelion, wild geranium, shea butter and host of secret Florida floral ingredients to fend of the copy cats.
Onli Beverages, ‘Because Life is Meant to Sparkle’ and Papa’s Pilar Rum, kept guests and team members hydrated along with special ‘stimulating waters from SobeFizz. Team photographer Natalie Reeves of VIPMedicalVacations.com confirms, “Rollin’V Eco Village and Lounge’ was a unique addition to the proceedings”. Another Florida natural will be future VIP Eco Villages with the upcoming schedule to be announced on artbasil.org.
Named after Ernest Hemmingway’s famed fishing trawler, Brand Ambassadors Kyle Atherton confirmed, “the Hemingway family donate their royalties from the sales of Papa’s Pilar Rum to Florida Reef Restoration”. Also raising consciousness was the Officer Snook Water Pollution Program, created in 1993 by Jennifer Sevin, then a high school student. Thestatewide program educates children about the causes, effects and solutions to water pollution.
Mike Vasher from GoTowAround.com, served on various Charlotte Harbor Superboat Grand Prix Committees and assessed the outcome as “a sensational first inaugural race and a step toward showcasing the immediate area as an ongoing ‘up-market’ destination. Not only for marine enthusiasts this hideaway on Florida’s East Coast is ready made for families and friends who are seeking a rare retreat without any of the attendant tourist traps and fanfare.” For simply the best visit Venice-Englewood-Charlotte Harbor and the Stump Pass Beach and Park, 900 Gulf Blvd, Englewood, FL 34223.
The beach crowd was bronzed, buffed and laid back, shoulder to shoulder and hip to hip, while a flurry of Doug Wrights to Donzi’s paced just off shore from dawn to dusk. Even with more than 10,000 spectators for the SBI’s Englewood Beach at Manasota Key race site was impeccably organized down to the last detail, thanks to Tom Carbonel and his team that includes Director of Marketing Rodrick Cox. With Mike Nash’s Southern Drawl Band provided a musical backdrop their ‘Another Day in Paradise’ was apropos and produced by Travis Wyrick at Knocksville’s Lakeside Studios. This is a band, that many will say, I knew them when!’
Several local businesses claimed they were on the ambivalent side of the SBI equation. Margie Keyes at the Gulf View Grill, located a shrimps toss from the SBI epicenter was not sure if the race was a bane or blessing. With hoagies bursting with plump Maine Lobster at less than a sawbuck and artisanal micro brews at a fin the premium bars were at every turn. The Gulf View Grill also provided a serene sancturary upstairs for the frazzled and focused race teams.
The Gulf View Grill property boasts two square blocks of paved parking for appreciative customers or for the not faint of heart the asking was $75.00 a parking space for anyone without a bar tab. Take Note: Connoisseurs of all stripes; the Gulf View Grill will morph into SBI Central next year for discerning diners and bar patrons alike. No need to wait until next year however, Margie Keyes derserves a Michelin star for her hospitable attitude alone.
The dire forewarnings put out by the local press predictinga glut of log jams never materialized and served as a deterrent in the best way. A short ½ hour commute from the Holiday Inn Express in Venice was reachable in 15 minutes.
Vasher agreed, “Great lengths were taken to avert road rage, parking and traffic problems all of which would have been counter intuitive for a relaxing day at the races. A shuttle service was provided back and forth from the race site. Admittance to the dry pit area for a mere $20. General admission was like having a back stage pass for the entire weekend for less than a South Beach valet. SBI patrons were encouraged to visit with the teams, collect schwag and take photos.
Highly Recommended: We booked rooms at the Holiday Inn Express in Venice, Florida. The staff serves a diner style, complimentary fresh hot breakfast, steamy pancakes, real butter, fresh tropical fruit cup and soft scrambled. ADA, pet and singles friendly, the Holiday Inn Express provides guests with a business center and a professional and accommodating staff. The gourmet greasy spoon ‘BrewBurgers’ for late night dining (with probably the best Basil Tomato soup ever tasted this side of the Mason Dixon line) served as a home away from home for the Rollin’V team, confirms Bridget Aylward, General Manager.
