Grand Prix West Joins H1 Unlimited For Air Guard
Championship presented by Degree Men at
San Diego Bayfair
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (September 3, 2010)
When you feel the thunderous, automotive-powered hydroplanes of Grand Prix West take to the Bill Muncey Memorial Racecourse on Mission Bay during San Diego Bayfair, September 17-19, they’ll be maintaining an important element of Mr. Muncey’s vision. They’ll be providing the Thunder, enhancing the already amazing H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes.
‘Grand Prix West’ known for their loud roaring deck to deck action has quickly established itself as one of the premier boat racing attractions, and are thrilled to be joining other boat-racing classes scheduled to compete at the ‘Air Guard Championship presented by Degree Men’.
H1 Unlimited Chairman Sam Cole stated, “We are delighted to be able to have Grand Prix West join us in San Diego. They are a dedicated group of racers and we look forward to supporting their efforts at the Air Guard Championship presented by Degree. GPW is a great series that is growing fast and becoming very popular with fans of hydroplane racing. They will be a great addition to our event on Mission Bay.”
Grand Prix (GP) is an American Power Boat Association (APBA) class featuring supercharged big-block engines producing as much as 1500 horsepower. The 24-26 foot craft routinely attain speeds in excess of 160 miles-per-hour in the straights. Long a premier class on the east coast of North America, ‘Grand Prix West’ is the first club to organize GP racing on the west coast. GPW consists mostly, though not exclusively, of west coast teams. GP participation in the ‘Air Guard Championship presented by Degree Men’ this year will include teams from across the country. Additionally, teams from Canada, a hotbed of the ever growing class of Grand Prix racing under the Canadian Boating Federation (CBF) banner, some will make the trek to San Diego for such a prestigious race.
The ‘Air Guard Championship presented by Degree Men’ will be seen on the Versus Network on Saturday, October 16 and will be streamed live on the internet by Tampa Digital Studios. Additionally, Grand Prix racing will be streamed live at www.gpwracing.com .
