new brighton pbcNEW BRIGHTON CLUB DAY REPORT 

It was a good start to our season with seven boats in attendance.

We took to the water at about 10:30 for our junior training and observation sessions followed up with a shake down for our V8 skiff boys.

We then sent the skiff’s along with a lone ski boat out for a four lap race.

A good battle between Davie Norris in Full Throttle and Josh Ryan in Provocative with the lead changing several times before Davie taking the win.

William Ryan in Ginger Bear was showing some impressive pace until a drop in oil pressure caused him to withdraw.

Good to see Jeff Hauschild back behind the wheel of a race boat again in his mint 1750 Bullet and we look forward to seeing him back in a top running flattie with the purchase of Miss Print VII.

Unfortunately the day was cut short with a surprise southerly wind change turning our calm lake into a sea of whitecaps.

We then proceeded with a BBQ and social gathering with a good attendance.

A little bit of bad luck for our newest member Miss Lily Weir and her new junior boat having some gearbox shifter issues.  

She is one keen young lass and I’m sure she will be ready to go in a fortnight’s time.

With winter really hitting hard now in NZ, here is a little history from one of the worlds few purpose built water race tracks.

Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Parkwild horse

This facility opened as Firebird International Raceway in 1983 and hosted the NHRA's Arizona Nationals. It held one IMSA GT race, in 1987. Due to its warm climate, it is a popular winter testing spot for NHRA and IndyCar teams. In December 1992, Three-time Formula One World Driving Champion Ayrton Senna famously tested an IndyCar at this facility (then still called Firebird International Raceway) with Team Penske. Senna was intrigued, but eventually decided to stay in Formula One.

The venue currently hosts an array of auto enthusiast events, such as the NHRA Nationals, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, Lucas Oil Regional Off-Road Racing Series, Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing, Red Bull Global Rally Cross, Bug-o-Rama, Formula Drift, Friday Night Drags, Drift & Drag Nights.

The 600 acre multi-use facility is currently used by dragsters, monster trucks, off-road races, and drag boats. Some of the biggest brands in motorsports, including Lucas Oil, Coca-Cola, Carquest and Ford have sponsored the circuit.

The park includes four race tracks: a 1/4 mile NHRA sanctioned drag strip; 1.6 mile road course; a 10-turn 1.25 mile road course; and a 1.1 mile road course, incorporating 11 tight turns and a 3/8 mile straight-away. It also features a 2.4 mile IHBA- and APBA-sanctioned oval lake.

On February 24, 1985, in one of the most chilling accidents ever seen at the lake, Drag Boat Racer Sunny Moon was nearly killed after jumping out of his drag boat when he jammed his throttle going around 160 MPH, which launched into the air after hitting the shore and exploded into flames after slamming into a row of high tension power lines. Moon was knocked unconscious after hitting the water at 160 MPH, but amazingly, he suffered only minor injuries in the accident. The accident was filmed by cameraman Terry Fox.

gp 2020Proposed 2021 Hydro Thunders Championship Series

 

The NZGP Hydroplane Drivers and the Hydro Thunder events team are currently working through dates and venues for our 2020/2021 race season with the hope that we will be clear to race by December. 

As a build up to the season we will have a couple of test sessions at Lake Maraetai Mangakino planned for September and October with the first round of the Hydro Thunder series to be. 

  • 5-6th December Lake Maraetai , Mangakino 
  • 30-31st January Lake Taupo , Taupo 
  • 13-14th February Lake Karapiro, Cambridge 
  • 20-21st March Lake Rotoiti, Nelson Lakes

 

All of the above mentioned dates are provisional, pending local authority and associated stakeholders at the required venues approval.”

 

We will be governed by the impact of the COVID-19 and will follow the guidelines to what we are allowed to do around hosting events and the restrictions that may be imposed. 

On behalf of the NZGP Drivers and the Hydro thunder events team, again we thank you for your understanding and will keep you informed with updates as they come to hand.

Official announcement  

2021 UIM Grand Prix Hydroplane World Championship in New Zealand

 

A meeting took place on the 3rd May 2020 with members of the NZGP Drivers club and Hydro Thunder event organisers to discuss the viability of running the 2021 UIM Grand Prix Hydroplane World Championship.

At the conclusion of this meeting the decision was made to postpone the event until 2022 due to the current events happening around the world.

The impact of COVID-19 on international travel and the financial strains at this point is an unknown and feel in the best interest of the event and the sport that postponing will only make it stronger.

We would like to ensure that there are no barriers that will prevent overseas entries from making the journey to what will be a great event.

We are currently putting together a proposed programme for the up and coming HydroThunder series in the hope that we are clear to race and are able to give the fans both here in NZ and around the world a good show leading to the 2022 World event.

On behalf of the NZGP Drivers Club and the Hydrothunder events team, thank you for your understanding and we look forward to updating you on our proposed calendar.

For any further enquiry please contact denise @accelerationonwater.co.nz

 

 

 

Thanks Denise

CoronaVirus Update

Please see the below letter from the President of the Nzpba.

 

To all Clubs, drivers and supporters

We as a sports body have a duty to follow the rules and regulations as set by our government and health officials.
Clubs are advised that they cannot host a meeting or regatta if the total number of participants is 500 people.
This number includes officials, members and crews and spectators. I think you would quickly get to that number when honestly considering all involved.
I do struggle to think it is worth having a regatta with less than that number anyway.
So the bottom line is we need to suspend any remaining regatta events from the rest of our season and be careful with numbers at any large club closing days. 
Lets hope this all passes our country quickly and we can all get back on track for next summer.
.

President

cambridge pbcCambridge Waikato Regatta News Release.

 

Fellow boat racers,

Due to a combination of factors that have conspired against us it is with regret that I have to announce that the regatta due to be run on the 15th and 16th of February at Blue Lake Rotorua has been canceled.

Unfortunately at the time of writing we do not have sufficient entries to warrant proceeding with the regatta and the Cambridge/Waikato powerboat club has made the tough decision to cancel as we consider it is not in either the clubs or the sports interest to continue.

I thank all of those who have put in considerable effort in the organization leading up to the event and trust that competitors will be understanding of our decision.

Yours in racing

Nigel Zander

President

Cambridge/Waikato powerboat club

Now That's Different !

 

One of the first gasoline powerboats to hold The World Speed Record was, the HD-4 or Hydrodome number 4.

HD-4 was an early research hydrofoil watercraft developed by the scientist Alexander Graham Bell. Designed and built at the Bell Boatyard on Bell's Beinn Bhreagh estate near Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Bell and his associate Frederick W. "Casey" Baldwin studied the work of the Italian inventor Enrico Forlanini and began testing models based on his hydrofoil designs. Bell with his chief engineer Baldwin began hydrofoil experiments in the summer of 1908. During Bell's world tour of 1910–1911, Bell and Baldwin met with Forlanini in Italy, where they rode in his hydrofoil boat over Lake Maggiore. Baldwin described it as being as smooth as flying.

On returning to Bell's large laboratory and boatyard at his Beinn Bhreagh estate near Baddeck, Nova Scotia, they experimented with a number of designs, culminating in HD-4. In 1913, Dr. Bell hired Walter Pinaud, a Sydney yacht designer and builder as well as the proprietor of Pinaud's Yacht Yard in Westmount to work on the pontoons of HD-4. Pinaud soon took over the Bell Boatyard at Beinn Bhreagh. Pinaud's experience in boat-building enabled him to make useful design changes to HD-4. After the First World War, work began again on HD-4. Bell's report to the U.S. Navy permitted him to obtain two 350 brake horsepower (260 kW) Liberty V-12 engines in July 1919.

On September 9, 1919, on the Bras d'Or Lakes, at Baddeck, HD-4 set a world marine speed record of 70.86 miles per hour (114.04 km/h), that stood for almost a year until being beaten by Gar Wood in Miss America.
