Powerboat Racing Highlights

With a commitment from the fastest boats in the world, H1 Unlimited hydroplanes, and the piston-powered Grand Prix West Series, San Diego Bayfair promises to once again bring the finest powerboat competition to San Diego’s Mission Bay this September.

Oberto driver Steve David will be back to defend his Bayfair crown, September 13-15, on the 2.5-mile course that is considered some of the fastest water in the country. At least eight H1 Unlimited teams are expected to compete in the final North American race of the season for the tour.

Joining H1 Unlimited are the always exciting Grand Prix West Series, featuring big-block engines and return to Mission Bay after a one-year hiatus. The hydroplanes race on a smaller course but are just as exciting as their turbine-powered siblings.

Also adding to the on-water entertainment is RPM Racing Enterprises, which features nearly a dozen smaller racing classes that will compete between the H1 Unlimited and Grand Prix West hydroplanes.

The Lucas Series Drag Boats has chosen to race other venues and will not appear at Crown Point Shores this year. Though missed by the quarter-mile race fans, the H1 Unlimiteds and Grand Prix West more than make up the on-water racing time required for ‘hard-fought’ competitions, Thomas said.

Bayfair also continues to create additional shoreline entertainment and fans can surely expect more live entertainment than ever before, great food and vendors and of course the opportunity to overnight in motorhomes in the park, special only to Bayfair!

Additional motorsports entertainment is expected to be added in the coming weeks. Announcements will be made when city approvals are obtained.

Viewing areas: Fiesta Island (west side), Crown Point, and Ski Beach.
