H1 Unlimited fans finally got their wish in 2020, a H1 hydroplane hit the water!

Saturday, Oct. 31st, Kelly & Sharon Stocklin's recently acquired U-99.9 took to the Columbia river in Pateros, Wa. for its much anticipated test.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact us all... the sport, the fans, the volunteers, our sponsors, and the cities that support H1 racing.

Together, we will get through this and hopefully return to racing in 2021.
