    Default Hydroplanes coming to Folsom Lake May 31 2013

    yes sir.
    This was also displayed at the Indy Race @ sears point a couple weeks ago. I believe its making its rounds to promote the big H1 race coming to Folsom next year.

    FOLSOM, Calif. — The Air National Guard H1 Unlimited Hydroplane series announced Monday that the 2013 race season will kick off at Folsom Lake.

    Sacramento is one of only six U.S. cities to host the international tour.

    This will be the first time the series has returned to Folsom since 1967.

    Series chairman Sam Cole lives in Elk Grove. He was at the races in 1967 and said bringing the hydroplanes back to Northern California will fulfill a childhood dream.

    Cole added, cities with smaller populations have netted millions of dollars in revenue. He expects Sacramento to do even better.

    "I’m more nervous about that because I have to live here. We have to do it right. We have to do it bigger," said an enthusiastic Cole.

    The City of Folsom estimates the weekend will generate $1 million dollars for its merchants and hotels.

    City councilman Jeff Starsky said the real benefit will come from out-of-state money brought into the event.

    "The tourism will be huge. Everything we can do to bring out-of-state dollars to spend in our cities, it benefits us all," said Starsky.

    Race promoter Bob Richards said Folsom Lake is the perfect venue for the series

    Richards says envision a Formula-1 style racing venue with a family and lifestyle expo to explore.
    "The general admission area will be filled with EZ-Up tents, picnic tables, barbeques and families. People can come out and enjoy the whole day at the beach," said Richards.
    Deluxe box-seats will also be assembled along with food catering, beer and wine gardens, according to Richards.
    The H1 Hydroplanes live up to their names as they skip across the water at over 210 mph. They are powered by a 2,600 horsepower jet engine taken out of a Vietnam war-era Chinook helicopter.
    Six boats will race at a time around the two-mile course.
    Organizers said the start-finish line will be centered along the three-quarter mile long straightaway, between Granite Bay's boat launches.
    Spectators will have a front-row seat to the races happening just 100 yards off shore.
    The event is scheduled for May 31 to June 2, 2013.
