Borrowing from the tradition of the Indianapolis 500 car race, “GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINES”!!!! Welcome to the opening of the 2012 APBA Grand Prix national hydroplane racing season and the third year in the existence of Grand Prix West (GPW)! Not only have we expanded our race sites but we have added a couple of “new” boats! Add to all of the excitement a brand new website! We will be working diligently to keep the website fresh with news, events, live streaming and pictures from each site taken by Julie Sparrowgrove and Chris Denslow. Thanks Julie and Chris for your support and talent!
Our first new race site will also be the first race of the season, the 1st Annual Havasu World Cup located at Lake Havasu City, AZ. The race will be conducted in the protected waters of Thompson Bay on a one mile course. Friday, April 6, will have testing followed by a “Holiday Motorsports Dash for Cash”. Heat racing will be on Saturday and Sunday between 9am and 4pm. We are expecting the largest gathering of Grand Prix boats ever seen in a long, long time and another wonderful opportunity for GPW and ACHA to collaborate and give the spring break fans something to cheer about and remember for a long time, at least until next year!
Stay tuned sports fans for more GPW and individual Team news!
