H1 Unlimited 2024 Preseason Test Livestream

Just like Major League Baseball has Spring Training, our drivers and crews need a chance to tune up prior to the season. This takes the form of a pre-season test session where the majority of the teams will gather for a day to make sure all of the modifications, tuning and tweaks they worked on over the off-season will actually do what they intended.

This year, our test session will take place in Kennewick, WA – the site of the Apollo Columbia Cup – on Friday, May 31, 2024 beginning at 9:00AM. Admission to the park and shoreline is free, and you will be treated to multiple runs by all teams. In fact, during a test session, most teams run MORE laps than they would normally run during a race event, trying out different combinations of settings on their boats, as well as getting their drivers some long-awaited seat time in their 2024 rides!

The first event of the 2024 season finds seven of the fastest race boats in the world gather in Tri-Cities, WA for the H1 Unlimited Preseason Testing Session.

The seven hydroplanes expected to run are:
• U-1 – Beacon Electric, J. Michael Kelly
• U-9 – Beacon Plumbing, Corey Peabody
• U-11 – Miss Mercury’s Coffee Co., Jamie Nilsen
• U-12 – Graham Trucking, Bobby King
• U-21 – Lakeridge Paving, Gunnar O’Farrell
• U-40 – Bucket List Racing, Dustin Echols
• U-91 – Miss Goodman Real Estate, Andrew Tate

If you can take a day off work that Friday, bring a comfy chair, a cooler, the family and a camera and take in a full day of fast boats in a relaxed atmosphere along the banks of the Columbia River. See ya there!
