Raceboats - Hot Rods & Classic Cars
This is the second year for the event at this new location on the Buffalo waterfront . It is located behind the breakwall of the Buffalo Harbor. It is what I am calling a "hybrid" event. On the water It will involve: unlimiteds and other classes of hydroplanes, a fleet of jersey skiffs, offshore boats, and E & F service runabouts that preceded the later classes of race boats. We hope to display the evolution of different racing classes both on land and in the water. We will have 2 days of water activities beginning at 10am and running until 4pm. To top things off we will have a display of hot rods and muscle cars shoreside.
For those interested we will arrange a special tour of the Buffalo Maritime Center and Rich DeGlopper's new boat shop! Both located 10 minutes away.
Drivers meeting 9:30 am each day. General safety inspection of all boats. Waiver forms to be signed at event.
NOTE: if your boat will be staying in the water inbetween heats, remember to bring your bumpers and lines.
On Saturday evening we will have an informal gathering at the Wilkeson Point area - Details to follow!
