1992-1995 Chip Hanauer Race Used ‘Miss Budweiser’ Unlimited Hydroplane Suit
Stand 21 race suit used by Edward “Chip” Hanauer who is one of the most successful Unlimited Hydroplane pilots in the history of powerboat racing. He has won the APBA Gold Cup a record 11 times and was the driver of one of the most famous boats in APBA history, ‘Miss Budweiser’, in the early to mid-1990s. During this time period Hanauer suffered a series of severe injuries in high-speed Unlimited Hydroplane accidents. Those accidents eventually pushed him to make the decision to retire in 1996. He was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1995 as their youngest ever inductee at the time.
This all-red ‘Miss Budweiser ‘suit has the blue edged silver ‘Budweiser’ lettering on the chest and running down the front of both legs. To the upper chest there are sponsor patches from Blockbuster, O’doul’s and Eagle Snacks as well as Bud ‘King of Beers’ lettering embroidered on the right chest. The back of the suit also has large Bud ‘King of Beers’ lettering.
The suit comes directly from the personal collection of the former North America President of the Stand 21 Racewear Company, Phillipe de Lespinay.
The suit comes with a full Certificate Of Authenticity.
