Ken Lupton won the 2013 AE Baker in great style. With David Alexander in Annihilator winning the first heat on the Saturday from Warwick Lupton and then Ken Lupton. Ken finishing with a broken cannard wing making for a flighty GP hydroplane as shown in the photos. This made for a great battle in the second heat with David all but looking to win with a slight advantage over Ken, but it wasn’t to be as he pulled up on the final lap leaving Ken to take the win in Cheetah! This is the first championship won by Ken Lupton and the new GP Hydroplane Cheetah. Look out Queenstown where the GP Hydroplanes will be next for the NZ GP Hydroplane title up for grabs.
