The offshore powerboat race season began last week with an event in Biloxi, Mississippi, and with it kicked off the active season of preparation for the 4th annual Great Lakes Super Boat Grand Prix here in Michigan City.
The grand prix is a year-long prep for us, but when the temps begin warming and the sun stays out longer is when we really kick things into gear preparing for August. Race dates are July 31-Aug. 5, with a community kick-off event Tuesday, July 31, at Washington Park Beach. After a full week of events, including the very popular Taste of Michigan CIty, boat parade and block party downtown the night of Saturday, Aug. 4, come to Washington Park Beach and watch the world’s best racers and fastest boats compete for titles at speeds topping 150 miles per hour.
We want to again thank all our great partners, without whom, this event wouldn’t happen. We also want to thank all the racers and teams, along with Super Boat International, all of whom make the Great Lakes Grand Prix one of the premier events in all of Northern Indiana.
Stay tuned to this space for more updates. As cool things happen regarding the 2012 Great Lakes Grand Prix, we;ll make sure we let you all know about them right here.
So thanks and we’ll see you in August.
