The 2017 Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 Mile National Team Endurance Race Presented by Yamaha is set to launch on Sunday, Feb. 12 from Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
The 2016 event — known as the world’s longest continuous PWC race — attracted teams and riders from 14 countries around the world and will once again be sanctioned by the IJSBA. It’s expected to draw a record number teams from around the globe. The teams will be competing against each other while trying to break the 300-mile record of 4 hours 46 minutes and 13 seconds set by the 2016 Mark Hahn Memorial Overall winners Pastorello and Botti of Team Kawasaki France.
For the 13th consecutive year the race is being held in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn, who was instrumental in providing the momentum to keep endurance racing going strong and growing across the country before his untimely death during a PWC race in 2004.
The team format features two riders for runabout (sit down) boat teams and up to three riders for a stand-up craft. Solo riders are welcome to “Ironman” the race on either style of boat.
