More Info: The road to the water has hydroplane race organizers a little bit worried. Figuring out the perfect way to pull off a race on Lake Coeur d’Alene that could entertain 30,000 or 40,000 people for the first time isn’t the easiest thing to do, and that includes getting fans to and from the venue. “Everything is something we’re working through, you bet,” said Herb Huseland, Diamond Cup Regatta spokesperson. One speed bump they’ve hit along the way — and the race is now two weeks out — is the park and ride option for spectators. Busing around 16,000 people from the Kootenai County Fairgrounds to the race course at Silver Beach could clog traffic at the fairgrounds or on East Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive.
Question: How do you plan to get to the Diamond Cup races on Labor Day weekend?
