More details on the Return of hydroplane racing to Idaho

"The course that we’ve laid out will provide us with a 200 mile-per-hour course, which is pretty exciting," said Doug Miller, the President and Race Director of the Coeur d’Alene Diamond Cup Regatta. "We have been working on bringing the races back for the past three years and we are ecstatic to see it come to fruition." It will be a two mile oval. The event will be held on Labor Day weekend. This year, it will feature exhibitions from H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes and Vintage Hydroplanes as well as GP racing. "When we were picking a site, we’re looking for a permanent one," said Sam Cole, representing H1 Unlimited. "We don’t want just a one-year event, we are looking to for long term partners with vision and a love for Hydroplanes."
