Mark Hahn Memorial 300 Event To Return For 2020

According to all accounts, 2019 marked the end of a fifteen-year long saga in the world’s longest PWC endurance race…..or so we thought!

The announcement of 2019 being the end of the Mark Hahn 300 Race sparked so much uproar and publicity that event promoters have finally decided to bring it back for 2020. This will now mark the 16th annual event.

Starting back in Spring 2019, there was some afterthought and speculation about a possible 2020 event. It was then announced shortly thereafter that the 16th annual event would take place pending sufficient entry form submissions.

In recent years the event has been in decline of funding and racer participation. Many teams had been experiencing losses that inhibited their success in future events however the 2019 event took a huge turnaround.

Racers came out in droves and the event finally regained profitability. Many suspect that the sentiment that accompanied the so-called final event helped boost the in-flux of racers and drove the success of this past event so promoters have been approaching the 2020 event with caution.

It appears the event will now take place due to the generation of a number of entries. Entry forms are still being accepted for the February 22, 2020 Yamaha IJSBA Mark Hahn 300 but everyone hopes that interest is still there and that the level of participation will match last year’s.

Time will only tell what the future holds for this long-time running endurance race.
