Follow us, or check back often for Events set on USTREAM or YouTube...AND come to a Race it is a ton of fun!
The most extreme boat racing anywhere!!!
The Driver & Navigator are given a map the night before the race when they register & complete the very important safety check in (tech in). The have to memorize the course which is composed of multiple —90° hairpin turns. These boats race in water 2-3 feet deep, and go zero to 80M.P.H. in less than 3 seconds. The specially designed hulls and Jet Pumps allow the 13 foot, 850+HP boats to corner like a fighter jet, pulling between 5-7 G's in the corners.—Now that is FAST!!!!!
Each Boat is trying to get the best time and it gets a little crazy sometimes. They have 4 chances to qualify and move onto the next round. It’s a blast to watch!
This sport originated in New Zealand, but came to the Pacific N.W. United States, in the early 1990's. We have taken the sport to the next level and would invite you to get the racing fever with us.
