DETROIT HYDROFEST/APBA GOLD CUP*

DETROIT HYDROFEST/APBA GOLD CUP*

AUGUST 23-25, 2024

After too many years away, Detroit makes a return to the H1 Unlimited calendar in 2024, with the biggest prize in Unlimited Hydroplane Racing – the APBA Gold Cup – up for grabs.

This year’s event will take place August 23-25 on the Detroit River, in the most intimate setting there is in the sport, with viewing as close as you can possibly be to our fire-breathing hydros!

The Detroit course features one of the widest turns at one end – the Bridge Turn – which allows our boats to keep the speed up, then sends them into the tightest turn of any course on the schedule – the famous Roostertail Turn, which they enter at over 200 MPH and exit literally feet from the bleacher seats! 

If you haven’t experienced the Roostertail Turn in person, add it to your bucket list and make sure to attend the 2024 APBA Gold Cup!
