New dates for Detroit Gold Cup

The Detroit River Regatta Association today announced new dates for the running of the 2010 Detroit APBA Gold Cup. The event will be held on the Detroit River June 25-27.

In announcing the move to the June dates, DRRA President and Race Director Tom Bertolini pointed out several factors that led to the DRRA decision.

We believe that more of our race fans are at home in late June than our previous dates, which were closer to the 4th of July,” explained Bertolini.

Bertolini added, “This also gives us the opportunity to hold the event in co-ordination with other Detroit area festivals and events in late June and give the area a tremendous two-week kickoff to summer.”

Event Director Mark Weber pointed out that, “Now that our dates have been finalized, our season ticket holders should receive their pre-season ticket sales packages soon.”

"We are very excited about opening our season in Detroit and competing for the APBA Gold Cup," said Sam Cole, H1 Unlimited Chairman,"
"This is an opportunity that the Detroit River Racing Association could not pass up and we want to help support them in any way that we can," Cole added. " I think this is a great way to start the season with a premier event like the APBA Gold Cup. It will create excitement that should carry through to our other events."

The 2010 APBA Gold Cup will begin with testing and qualifying on Friday June 25th and racing on Saturday and Sunday.
