Before we get to the last Unlimited Hydroplane race of the season, lets pause for a moment. Coeur d’Alene has successfully wrapped up its return to Unlimited Hydroplane Racing after decades of calm water. By all reports, it has cemented itself firmly in future schedules and will no doubt be a key stop on the future racing circuit. Congratulations to Doug Miller and his entire Diamond Cup Team!
In addition to a successful return to CDA, this year’s overall activities have yet again provided for an interesting year. Some would say a very challenging one at More >
First, exciting news from Coeur d’Alene – the detailed 2013 Diamond Cup Schedule has been released! The weekend is shaping up to be a fun one, with exciting activities for all ages. (Hold that thought for a second. We’ll pick that up after the schedule and discuss why this sort of schedule is critical for the future of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing, and take a look at what else might be up Doug Miller’s sleeve for next year.)

When we last checked in with Doug Miller and his progress with the Coeur d’Alene Diamond Cup, he and the team had a blast conducting a press event to confirm “all systems GO” for Unlimited Hydroplane Racing in Northern Idaho over Labor Day, 2013.
With the momentum they enjoyed leading up to the press event, and with what has been accomplished to date, we are long overdue to provide an update on their progress.And what progress they’ve made!
With the launch of a new site and continually adding more content, they are on their way. Let’s take a look at some of that progress, shall we?New Web More >
Unlimited Hydroplane Racing is many things. Sport. Art. Science. As fans, we connect by way of the competition. We revel in the beauty and style of these magnificent machines. Many of us don’t really grasp why these boats can go as fast as they do, seemingly creating a full rap sheet of violations to many of Newton’s laws.
While Unlimited Hydroplane Racing is all of these, it is also an activity that relies on the elements. Mother Nature consistently smiles on our sport/art/science, but at times she has, well, other ideas. Reference the disappointing weekend in More >
It is always exciting to learn about the expansion of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing. It’s good for the sport; it’s good for the teams; and it’s good for the fans. Never mind just how great it is for the local economies and the communities surrounding a race site.
But when someone UnlimitedHydroplaneRacing.com can call a “friend of the site” it has special meaning.
If you’ve ever been involved with orchestrating an event of any significant scope, you know the challenges scheduling can present. Those challenges can range from the global (which weekend do we hold our event?) to the local (we’ve chosen the weekend, but do we make it 2 or 3 days?) to the micro (should we start at 8:00, or 8:30 and how will that affect our ending at 4:00, or should that be 4:30?)
You get the idea.
