Extreme Measures Racing Crew

Driver:    Jonathan Mouttet 

Racing Since: 2006

DOB: 06 / 08 / 87


Jonathan has been involved in boating from since his boyhood days. He has been an avid powerboat enthusiast for as long as he can remember, having owned his own boat and being “down d islands” regularly. He stems from a family with roots in the powerboat fraternity with family racing in the powerboat association’s rich history.

Being involved in boating, there was no surprise when Jonathan decided to take up racing in 2006, joining the Team Alien. This was a 29ft Phantom Hull (locally built) outfitted with twin 225hp Mercury engines. He raced with the team for that 2009 Great Race successfully in the 70mph class, and then again in 2010. After the first half of the 2010 season, he stepped down from the racing crew, but continued on as part of the support crew for the team. Being involved in the sport since then, with practically the same level of enthusiasm for the sport of powerboat racing, there is no wonder Jonathan was so easily drawn to the attention of the Extreme Measures racing team. When the opportunity presented itself with Team Extreme Measures, Jonathan jumped on bored the team without hesitation. 

Since he has joined, there has been no doubt that he has been an asset to the team. Jonathan’s skill behind the wheel will continue to undoubtedly grow substantially as the Extreme Measures team continues to improve not only the boat and individually, but as a team. 


Throttleman:    Johnathan Tardieu

Racing Since: 2006

DOB: 06 / 08 / 83


Johnathan has been involved in powerboat racing by force from birth. Following in the footsteps of his Father, Godfather and uncles from the White Heat Racing team, Johnathan has been ever present and involved in powerboat racing. Having been around boats and the ocean all his life, he undoubtedly has a passion for the sea and for the sport of powerboat racing. The only break from powerboat racing came when Johnathan went to Arizona State University to pursue a degree in aeronautical management. Upon his return in 2005, Johnathan was plunged almost immediately back into the heart of powerboat racing.

His professional powerboat career began officially in 2006, racing with the Matrix Racing Team. A 20ft Hustler, competing in the Great Race for the first time that year. Team Matrix raced successfully that season. In 2007, the crew decided to step up to the 29ft Formula III hull and started racing Extreme Measures. Extreme Measures had quite a successful season in 2007 and again in 2008. The 2008 Great Race again saw Extreme Measures finish the year with great success finishing 2nd in class and within the top 10 finishers for the Great Race. The 2008 season also saw Johnathan being elected onto the Trinidad and Tobago Powerboat Association executive committee as the Secretary for the association for the 2008/09 season. In 2009/10, Johnathan was again re-elected as secretary of the TTPBA. 2009 also saw Johnathan pair with his cousin Derek Pantin to race Extreme Measures to victory in the 2009 Great Race, winning the 55mph class and taking Class Champion for that 2009 racing year. From 2010 onwards, Johnathan has continued to successfully race Extreme Measures, dominating the 60mph ‘G’ Class. Since then, a few more changes have happened with the Extreme Measures team, with changes in racing team personnel and upgrades to the equipment. With Johnathan’s experience and involvement in powerboating and his ongoing dedication and love for the sport, there is no doubt that his skills will continue to increase and ensure that he and his team remains at the forefront of offshore powerboat racing for this and many years to come. 

Navigator: Nicholai Assam
Racing Since: 2015
DOB: 17 / 10 / 1984

Nicholai has been involved in boating from since his childhood days. He has been an avid boating enthusiast for as long as he can remember, having lived down Chaguaramas and being a regular at the Trinidad and Tobago Yachting Association, among other marinas in the area. As a customs boarding clerk, he is no stranger to ships or the ocean.

Nicholai became involved in powerboat racing with Team Extreme Measures in 2014 being part of the team helping with the mechanics and general work being done on the vessel. There was no surprise when Nicholai decided to take up racing in 2015, joining the Team as the Navigator and racing with Team Extreme Measures for the first time in that year's Carib Great Race. There is no doubt that he continues to be an asset to his team mates. Nicholai has become a stalwart with the Extreme Measures Offshore Racing team. Nicholai’s skill set will undoubtedly grow substantially as the Extreme Measures team continues to improve not only the boat and individually, but as a team.
