Detroit Boat Races 2011

detroitthunderfest2011

See Unlimited Hydroplanes races at speeds up to 200 mph for the oldest active motor sport trophy in the world!

What gives this event prestige is that American Power Boat Association Gold Cup is the oldest active trophy in all of motorsports. What makes it a true thrill is the speed. Lots of it. And it’s not just the hydroplanes, which can go as fast as 200 miles per hour. This year there are also offshore boats — as big as 44 feet long, with engines capable of delivering up to 3,700 horsepower — that will be showing off their stuff on the Detroit River. For the nostalgic types, there will be an exhibition of vintage race boats, offering a glimpse at the sport’s early years. Adding to all the excitement will be the Navy’s West Coast Super Hornet Demo Team, which will be putting on a display of the supersonic FA-18 fighter plane.

The fun starts with practice and qualifying on Friday, July 8. Races will be held July 9-10.

General admission tickets covering all three days are $15. Cost for reserved seating varies. Henderson and Memorial Annex Parks (off Jefferson); 586-774-0980; gold-cup.com.
