Champboat Power Racing
By: Julie McCallum, Entertainment Editor
is the fastest growing motorsport in the world. F1-ChampBoat style racing enjoys a stellar 40 year history.
F1 ChampBoat (also known as F1 Powerboat Racing) are the fastest turning and most nimble powerboats in the world. Under the banner of the F1 ChampBoat Series, these boats and their world-class drivers thrill audiences with their competition all across North America.
In nearly every metropolitan area visited by the ChampBoat Series, the boat race is the biggest sporting event of the year. Each year the series reaches millions of consumers who attend races in person or view them on television.
Motorsports have become recognized as one of the best marketing tools available today. The ChampBoat Series provides an excellent marketing vehicle through sponsorship promotions with the series, individual events and of course with our race teams.
The up-close and intimate nature of the F1 Champboat racing weekends facilitates consumer awareness and brand bonding as well as premium hospitality that touches employees and key business-to-business contacts.
The Bay City (Michigan) tour event took place on June 25-27 at the
Dow Bay City River Roar
Over the last twenty years Bay City has become known for having one of the most difficult courses on the circuit with the seawalls that reflect the waves and increase the chop.
Bay City also has some of the best public viewing of any course with the bleachers on the West side and the tents, promenade, and docks on the East side.
Proceeds from the event support a number of charitable organizations.
