The Guntersville Lake Hydrofest is our first stop on the 2023 season, and has quickly grown into most team’s favorite race of the season. With a big, fast lake to race on, fantastic hospitality from the town and its citizens, and always warm weather, the Hydrofest is a great place to begin.

Beginning back in 1963, the race ran through 1969 and was the site of numerous speed record attempts, then had a hiatus until 2018, when it came back in a big way – with what is widely acknowledged to be the most spectacular Final Heat of the past twenty years, when Andrew Tate beat Jimmy Shane by less than 6 feet after five laps of 200 MPH racing!

This year, the Hydrofest will be this summer’s biggest event at the lake, with three classes of hydroplanes, racing at speeds of up to 200 mph.

Also, new for 2023 we have an all-new ultra-fast course layout – watch for all-time speed records to be set!

Be sure to get your tickets soon and join us on the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the country!

Tickets can be purchased at guntersvillelakehydrofest.com

If you can’t be in Guntersville to experience true Southern hospitality during the 2023 Guntersville Lake Hydrofest, we will be live-streaming the event on YouTube from flag to flag. You can now watch us from anywhere! Every practice, qualifying and every heat of the action leading to the Final Heat on Sunday will be available on any device.

To get revved up for the 2023 event, watch some of the action from last year’s Hydrofest:
