hydroplane race

This weekend on October 30th-31st at Hidden lake, Buckeye the outboard hydroplanes will be racing. Starting at around 10:00 am to about 6:00pm, they will be racing and range from speeds of 55-90mph! You can watch from the viewing area or purchase a pit pass and experience the racing up close. You may not have heard of outboard hydroplanes but they are small kneel-down racing boats. Each built by hand using an outboard racing motor, usually a Yamato or Mercury. Each race is 3 laps with a 3 min gun to start the race, if you jump the start you are disqualified. Come down and support the APBA outboard Hydroplane Race for a weekend you will not forget!
