    February, 2014

    Redondo Beach, CA – As winter draws to an end, Fans of Offshore Powerboat Racing won’t have to wait too long as Pacific Offshore Powerboat Racing Association is proud to announce the start of the 2014 Season at the Lake Perris Gran Prix at Lake Perris State Park in Perris, CA on Saturday March 22nd. All offshore classes including the popular "P" boat classes featuring Cat’s, V’s, inboard and outboard powered offshore race boats will descend on Lake Perris to race in the inaugural Lake Perris Gran Prix on Saturday afternoon. Racer’s will navigate the 5 ¼ mile course around Allesandro Island to the dam and back around the lake. The racers will be looking to start their 2014 APBA National High Point Championship chase with a finish at the Gran Prix.

    In the morning, prior to the Offshore Gran Prix there will be two PWC Endurance races with some of the top riders in the country participating. Racers on their Sea-Doo’s, Yamaha’s and Kawasaki’s will take to the water in a test of the crafts durability during the two- hour long races around the lake.

    The event is going to be fun for the whole family so grab the kids, some beach chairs and head over to Lake Perris to watch what’s surely going to be a great event!

    Default Very Imporatnt to anyone participating in the POPRA Lake Perris Gran Prix

    Quagga Mussel Inspection:

    No participating boats may be allowed on the water at Lake Perris if found to have been in the water of an infected lake 8 days prior to the race. So, please keep your boats out of any local lakes that are known to have Quagga mussels a 8 days prior to this event.

    Here's what the Park Rangers will be looking for:
    The Park will have Quagga Mussel inspections upon entry to the park. All participants should be aware of the policies and procedures. The Park does not allow any boats/ski's that have come from infected bodies of water without a 8 day waiting period.

    The Park Inspector will be looking for:
    *Standing Water in the hull- please make sure any and all standing water is completely dried out of the hull prior to coming through the gate
    (If you are concerned, please pull over in the gas station or race track prior to coming into the Park and check your hull to make sure no standing water is visible.)
    *No weeds or debris on or in the hull. Again, please check your ski/runabout prior to pulling up to the gate to insure no debris/weeds are found on the ski.
    Here is a link to CA State park inspection Boating and Watercraft

    Thanks for your compliance!

    Note: The park rangers are looking for any water/condensation (even a drop of water can be a fail) in the hulls when entering the State Park. Again, pleas make sure there is NO water or condensation in the hull when coming into the park. Pull over in the fair grounds when you turn on Lake Perris Drive and check the hulls one last time before coming into the park. DO NOT check the hulls for water while waiting in line to get into the park it will trigger an automatic fail. Do not underestimate this as the boat will be red tagged and not allowed into the state park and you will not be allowed to race it.

    Note: They will not ask you to start the motors to see if there is water in the exhaust.

    The pits open on Friday morning at 10:00 a.m
