New Feature Events Announced

Just announced: The 5 Litre hydroplanes will be racing on the Detroit River again after a many year hiatus. It looks like the last time they were here was in 2006. These are powered by stock small-block engines and are one of THE most competitive classes in the APBA. The Detroit River is big water for them so it will be a battle against competitors and the river itself - it should be exciting! A page has been set up for competitors and fans:

Also expected is Mario Maraldo in his Baby Doll III Grand Prix boat running exhibition laps. The GPs are just one step down from the Unlimiteds and they run big-block engines with superchargers. Baby Doll III is one of the loudest boats I've ever heard, and is really something to see! You can find some photos here:
