MADISON, INDIANA (March 6, 2019) – It is with great excitement that the H1 Unlimited Hydroplane Racing Series, in conjunction with the Madison Regatta, announce that the 115 year-old American Power Boat Association’s Gold Cup unlimited hydroplane race will be held on the Ohio River during the Madison Regatta and Roostertail Music Festival, July 4-7, 2019.

The A.P.B.A. Gold Cup race is the oldest in American motorsports.  The Gold Cup was first awarded 1904.

“This speaks volumes to the entire committee for their hard work and commitment to this event,” Madison Regatta President Matt True said. “We have come together, focused on the event and with everyone doing their part, we are a powerful team doing great things for Madison. We are listening to our fans and delivering the things they think are most important.”

The two organizations came to the agreement on Wednesday and will bring the A.P.B.A. Gold Cup back to Madison after nearly a 40-year absence.                                                                                                                                                                                             Continued, click here...

Statement of the Board of Directors of the American Boat Racing Association / H1 Unlimited

Following the successful and competitive completion of the 2018 H1 Racing Season, H1 Unlimited (H1) and Detroit Riverfront Events, Inc. (DREI) entered into discussions – beginning in December -- regarding the sanctioning of an Unlimited Hydroplane race on the Detroit River during the third week of August 2019.   Unfortunately, progress in the negotiations has not been to the level that the H1 Board of Directors had anticipated, and the parties are at a contractual impasse.

H1 believes that the parties cannot come to an agreement that would assure a quality competition in Detroit for this coming season, and as such, H1 will not be sanctioning a race in Detroit in 2019. Further, H1 has determined that it is in the best interest of the sport of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing (including the other Race Sites and the H1 teams) for H1 to focus its financial, competitive and human
resources (including its many volunteers) on those races and race sites that remain part of the 2019 H1 Racing Series.

H1 looks forward to the opportunity to expand its racing series into new locations, including a possible return to Detroit during H1’s 2020 racing season.


2019 Season H1 Unlimited Racing Series Event Schedule to be announced

H1 Unlimited has its free mobile device application “H1 Unlimited” for Apple and Android. The latest app is designed to connect hydroplane fans to the racing action with up-to-the-minute race updates and information during the H1 Hydroplane Racing Series season.

     “This app is the fan’s hydroplane heartbeat,” said Charlie Grooms, H1 Unlimited vice chairman. “It will be constantly up-dated from our events, so that a fan watching on the beach or half-way around the world has access to up-to-the-minute information.”
