Be sure to mark Saturday, February 24th, 2018 on your calendars! That’s the date that has been set for the 2018 Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 Mile National Team Endurance Race Presented by Yamaha. The 14th annual event that has been described as the “World’s Longest Continuous PWC Race” was announced recently by the event promoter Jim Russell and Executive Producer Mike Follmer. The event venue has been chosen as well with Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, Arizona hosting the event for yet another year.
“The race is returning to Crazy Horse Campground’s Main Beach site for this very important event”, said Jim Russell. He continued with, “the 10-mile course has been approved by the Coast Guard and will pit all the teams against the wind, rough water and long runs that this event has become synonymous with.”
In case you haven’t heard of the event before, the race has been held in the memory of late endurance racer Mark Hahn who was absolutely instrumental in keeping endurance racing going strong and growing across the country. Unfortunately he passed away during a PWC race back in 2004.
“After the gigantic success and worldwide recognition received in the press of the 2017 Hot Products Mark Hahn Memorial Presented by Yamaha, it is expected that a new record number of entries will come out for the 14th annual event. We’re already in high gear making preparations so that the 2018 event will out shine what we did last year in 2017. We’re going to do that by getting more giveaway prizes and even nicer trophies for the massive awards banquet at the Aquatic. We have on the water still photography and magazine coverage to chronicle the event for the riders. The awards banquet will feature a sit-down dinner for over 300 people and over 50 award trophies to be presented too overall and class winners with a host of special awards that will once again surprise their worthy recipients,” says Mike Follmer.
