The 17th Annual Quake On The Lake inboard hydroplane races will have the feel of a WWF Smack-Down with the best Grand Prix drivers from the northeast and northwest battling it out for their place in the record books.

These are the “Big Boats”--12’ wide, built of carbon fiber and other lightweight composite materials and weigh-in at around 2,900 pounds.

The engines are blown V-8’s based on big block Chevy design, which is supercharged and kicks out 1500 horsepower, burning straight Methanol. It’s the Wild West with the Grand Prix’s; few limitations, beyond the 468 cubic inch engine displacement. From there, it’s “run and gun” for the drivers who can use the ingenuity they want to get a leg up on the competition.
