Finally, after being postponed in 2020, the Key West RWO World Championships were held this past weekend. So many incredible machines took to the water and put on a show, however, our TNT prepared machine in the hands of Canada Homes, took home the OVERALL championship win! We are so proud of everyone here at TNT and everyone on the Canada Homes team for their incredible performance! John Tomlinson was interviewed after winning the championship and he broke down exactly how they were able to snag a class championship.
…Running strong all week with a pair of second-place finishes, Lorne Liebel and John Tomlinson are going home with the Supercat world title in their Canada Homes Skater catamaran. Tomlinson, who is grateful to be bringing another world championship back to TNT Custom Marine in Miami, said the entire Canada Homes team was happy with the outcome.
“That wasn’t the way we wanted to win a world championship, but we’ll take it,” the legendary throttleman explained. “I feel for the M CON guys but I’ve been there before—I’ve lost three world championships on the last day just like that. One year it was with Dave Scott, another year it was in the CMS MTI and the last one was in the Gasse MTI. That’s the thing about Key West, you really have to finish all three races to have a shot at the championship.
“As soon as we saw M CON go down, I backed off by about 5 to 6 mph and we just worried about finishing not trying to catch WHM,” he added. “It was a pretty uneventful race at that point. It was a long 10 laps with Lorne and I just watching all the instruments and making sure we didn’t make any mistakes. We knew what was at stake so we just maintained all the way to the finish.”
