Sled is a 2018 Botin design build at Core Builders Composites. Owner driver Takashi (Tak) Okura from Japan has a team of many nationalities but with a strong kiwi backbone. It is his fourth TP52 and second new build. In 2017 Sled with a 7th overall in the 52 Super Series for sure did not end up where they aimed for but it takes a lot more to unnerve this solid team. Will 2018 be the best Sled year ever?
