Graham Weller is shown here on a practice run in his hydroplane G-Force on Lake Karapiro, November 2010.  Weller won the A. E. Baker Cup in G-Force in 2009 and 2011, and in 2010 he won the E. C. Griffith Cup in the competition that is regarded as the Australasian power-boat racing championship. Weller’s win came 100 years after the first E. C. Griffith Cup race.
