Madison Regatta

2012 Madison Regatta

 

New Size and Shape For Madison Course

The Ohio River H1 Unlimited hydroplane race course at Madison will officially be scaled back to 2 miles for the Lucas Oil Indiana Governor’s Cup in July. Construction of a new Madison-Milton Bridge forced Regatta officials to look at alternate options with the layout of the “Wild” Bill Cantrell Memorial race course. Traditionally, the course has been 2.5 miles in length with boats crossing underneath the U.S. 421 bridge en route to turn two. The new layout will shift the course downstream just slightly. Turn two will now enter and exit on a line with St. Michael’s Avenue, roughly 200 yards downstream from the old layout.

The 2011 Lucas Oil Madison Regatta will be held July 1-3.
