Lake Hopatcong Grand Prix for 2016

Lake Information
Typography

Offshore-style powerboat racing is in Lake Hopatcong. Some 30 plus boats are expected to compete in up to 10 categories in the Offshore Powerboat Association event, to be run at the Lake Forest Yacht Club.

This venue starts at one of the best bars on the lake called Mason Street Pub, where you will get to meet the racing teams in person.

Mason Street Pub
Afterwards, the race takes place at the prestigious Lake Forest Yacht club, which has ample parking, and long sandy beach, and will provide a good view of the races for everyone.
Lake ForestThe less than 3 mile course will be arena style and fans will be able to see the entire racing from shore. Offshore racing had been a fixture at the Shore in past years, and fans remember the Benihana Grand Prix run at Point Pleasant Beach. The Lake Hopatcong event will launch the OPA season. Lake Hopatcong has traditionally hosted smaller hydroplane races in the past, but the offshore-style craft are newcomers to the waterway, which spans the Morris-Sussex county border. The boats carry a driver, who steers, and a throttleman, who deftly adjusts the throttles as the boat leaps out and re-enters the water so the engines don’t over-rev and the boat goes at maximum speed. The speed and excitement fuel passionate participants. The experience is incredible.
