Hydros want another shot at CdA

Unlimited Hydroplane racing is getting a major makeover, parts of which will be on display this weekend in the 51st Columbia Cup in Kennewick.

Former driver Steven David is the commissioner for H1 Unlimited and he is busy focusing on the future, which could include Lake Coeur d’Alene.

“Re-engineering the sport is a multi-year project,” said David, 62. “From the fan engagement perspective, the new H-1 (mobile) App has begun the process better than we expected in terms of adoption rates.”

From Doha, Qatar to Pearl Harbor and locations across North America, hydroplane racing has been a major motorsports draw for sponsors and fans alike. One region David is keen on, Lake Coeur d’Alene, appears to be one step closer to returning to the series schedule/Doug Pace, SR correspondent. More here (subscription required).
