Would you specify a manufacturer first?
Probably there are a couple 69 race ltd boards on the market...

I'm sure you mean the North Race Ltd? I think they must really get a more google-able name for their race board.

I would also like to know more about it. It seems to be the fastest production board this year, taking 7 out of the top 10 position in Germany. That either shows their brilliance, or that the racing side is still very, very new. It will be interesting to see if they can still dominate next year, especially with the production rules coming into effect (which I personally don't like.)

I am tempted to buy it, but I think a new model should come out in time for the 2012 season? It should be more refined, since the 69cm wide board has only been around a couple of months, so it can't be too well dialed in (although the results show otherwise).

Does anyone know, will a new model come out in time for next year's race season?

Rumorous indicate January. There is no official info about it.
All manufacturers lurk till the end (except Cabrinha :-? ).

In my mind it will be the most interesting year so far (just due to the production class).

About the board cannot say to much as I have been riding to short on her.

I have a North Race LTD 69 and I really like it - it is particularly good upwind. Downwind it is not as forgiving as the Mikes Lab board. I am selling mine in case anyone is interested... Send me a direct message if so.

Cheers,

A.
