“On behalf of the Formula 1 Powerboat Championship, we are very excited to bring Formula 1 powerboat racing back to Shreveport-Bossier for the first time since 2018,” said Tim Seebold , managing director of the Formula 1 Powerboat Championship. “Shreveport holds a special place in my heart as it was the site of my last National Championship before retiring from driving.”

In addition to the races, the event will feature an open pit area that allows fans to meet the drivers and get a closer look at the boats. The event will happen the same weekend as Mudbug Madness 2024 in Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport. General admission viewing is free and there will also be a VIP area at the Shreveport Aquarium.

“On behalf of the Mudbug Madness Festival, we are excited that Formula 1 Powerboat Racing will be taking place the same weekend as our festival on the Shreveport Riverfront,” said Terri Matthews , event coordinator for Mudbug Madness. “Our mission is to support and promote projects and events to enhance downtown and the synergy this will bring will do just that.”

NGK F1 Powerboat Championships Series Joining Upcoming Lake Race

History will be made on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks in a few weeks when the NGK Spark Plugs Formula One Powerboat Championship Series brings world-class tunnel-boat-racing action to the popular waterway for the first time. Building off the momentum of this season’s first two events in Port Neches, Texas, the NGK F1 Series is going to run its third round as a companion event to the Offshore Powerboat Association -sanctioned Lake Race at Bagnell Dam on June 3-5.

Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, Lake of the Ozarks also happens to be the hometown of NGK F1 Series director, Tim Seebold, who is very excited to bring the high-octane outboard racing to lake, fulfilling a dream he has envisioned for quite some time.

Longtime F1 racing fans will remember that the state of Missouri was once a stronghold for high-stakes tunnel-boat racing, as it hosted the St. Louis Grand Prix dating back nearly 50 years. Originally held at George Winter Park in Fenton from 1972 to 1999, the race moved to Creve Coeur Lake Park starting in 2000. The 37th and last St. Louis Grand Prix race was held in 2008.

“Since the inception of the NGK F1 Powerboat Championship in 2017 we have wanted to bring F1 powerboat racing back to Missouri,” Seebold said in a press release. “The outboard-racing tradition that began 49 years ago with the Concord Village Lions Club producing the first St. Louis Grand Prix at George Winter Park will once again thrill racing fans as the F1 boats light up the waters of my hometown. It is going to be a special event for powerboat racing fans to see the impressive high-horsepower offshore boats, the agile F1 boats along with the crowd-favorite Tri Hull division all on the water in the same day.

“Thanks to Tom Abbett of Lake Race and OPA’s Ed “Smitty” Smith for the shared infrastructure that has made this all possible,” he added. “We are fortunate and extend our appreciation to Shady Gators, Backwater Jacks, Dog Days, ProServ Business Systems and Ozark Touchless Covers for believing in our vision of bringing these powerboat disciplines together.”

Smith, the president of OPA, agreed that the announcement is great news for the racing community.

“We have learned through our partnership with Powerboat P1 how powerful these partnerships can be,” Smitty said in the release. “I have always wanted to watch the F1 boats race, but never had the opportunity to attend one of their events. Thanks to Tim Seebold for reaching out to us. This is going to be a big boost for us all.”

Abbett, president of the Lake Race Board of Directors, said the board is extremely excited with the addition of the NGK F1 Powerboat Series to the 2021 Lake Race event, which features the new Neon Taco as its primary host location.

“We have been discussing this for a few months, and once Tim Seebold and I met at the racecourse site by the dam, we knew we had to figure out a way to make it happen,” Abbett said in the release. “This addition of different classes will certainly add to the non-stop, on-course racing action and I cannot wait to see the dead start for the F1 boats from the docks; one of the coolest starts in all of racing. This addition will be a ‘must see’ for boating enthusiasts and race fans of all ages.”

According to the release, the public is invited to meet the racers at the Racer’s Reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Camden on the Lake Boardwalk. At noon on Friday, the race pits will begin set up followed by a Lake Race Street Party open to the public at Bagnell Dam Strip from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday’s race-day action, which includes Offshore, Formula 1 and Tri Hull, will start with testing at 9 a.m. and the full-throttle, deck-to-deck competition is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All of the racing action from Saturday will be broadcast via livestream from the NGK F1 website and the NGK F1 Facebook page utilizing a revolutionary live timing system, which allows fans to watch the rapid-paced race positioning in real time while watching the livestream. Additional viewing can be found on the American Broadcast Affiliates airing the show on live national television, where an estimated 40+ million viewers will have the chance to watch the event on broadcast and cable television.

Formula 1 Powerboat Racing Is the Ultimate Adrenaline Rush on the Water

What could possibly make Formula One car racing more exciting?

How about popping off the wheels and adding water ?

The Formula 1 Powerboat World Championship is considered the highest court for international inshore powerboat racing in the world. Organized by the international powerboat racing governing body, the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), and promoted by H2O Racing, Formula 1 Powerboat Racing brings all of the excitement of high speeds and horsepower to the water.

What Is the UIM F1H2O World Championship?

F1H2O, or Formula One H2O, powerboat racing is a grand prix-style event that has been pitting international teams and boats against each other since 1981.

Each race lasts approximately 45 minutes, with winding courses plotted over large bodies of water to accommodate the tunnel hull catamarans that run the race. With each F1 powerboat measuring approximately 20 feet long and 7 feet wide, and top speeds reaching 155 miles per hour thanks to the 400+ horsepower engines used, it's easy to see how the sport has earned a reputation as the ultimate adrenaline rush.

In the early days of F1H2O racing, these boats were made of plywood with an open cockpit. Today, drivers have the benefit of a hard-shell, enclosed cockpit with harnesses and airbags. Today's racers also need to an FIA Super License, which includes testing to demonstrate the drivers' ability to escape a submerged cockpit. When is the last time you almost drowned while getting your license?

The History of the F1H2O World Championship

The inaugural Formula One powerboat racing championship was held in 1981, though the history of the event involves a lot of strife and competition between Mercury Marine, the Outboard Marine Corporation (OMC), mostly regarding the use of ON or OZ engines. The OZ class developed into Formula One racing, while the ON class became the "World Grand Prix Series."

RELATED: The Female Trailblazers of Formula One: Only 5 Women Have Entered an F1 Race

And that was fine, for a while. OMC concentrated on building bigger and faster V8 engines, which caused greater safety concerns. Following a series of tragic deaths in races, it was clear that OZ races weren't going to last long.

So, they did what any waning top-tier sports event would do and doubled down. With American sponsors Champion Spark Plugs and Belgian promoter Pro One, the purse was increased, and boat safety was taken into greater consideration than ever before. Just when it appeared things were on the uprise, OMC took a look at Pro One's receipts and realized the promoter had spent around three years of budget in just one season. OMC shut down Formula 1 operations in Europe, and from 1987 to 1989, there simply was not a world champion.

Rivals to the Rescue

Meanwhile, Mercury and the ON engine fans had formed the Formula ON Drivers Association (FONDA), which was doing just fine. Sponsored by Budweiser, the FONDA World Grand Prix Series absorbed many of the powerboat drivers left behind by the dissolution of the OZ Formula 1 series.

In 1990, the UIM officially announced that the FONDA World Grand Prix Series would become the Formula 1 World Championship.

David Parkinson, who was tasked with creating the revolutionary Canon Trophy, on which the series was based, continued as series manager and promoter until 1993, when he handed the responsibility off to Nicolo di San Germano.

Today, the F1H2O Grand Prix consists of 279 Grand Prix races, which take place in 32 countries and five continents. In Formula 1 powerboat racing, it's not uncommon to watch four-time champion Shaun Torrente of Team Abu Dhabi take on the most decorated world champion, Guido Cappellini, and his fellow Italian racer Alex Carella (who competes for Team Qatar), along with three-time World Champion Philippe Chiappe of France, or Finland's Sami Selio and Wales' Jonathan Jones, both of whom have won two world titles each. F1 powerboat racing is truly an international sport that reflects all parts of the world in the championship standings.

If land-locked racing has left you feeling a bit dry, perhaps it's time to take to the lake with UIM F1H2O World Championship powerboat racing. There's no time like the present to pick up a new speed sport to watch, after all!

An overview of F1 Powerboat

WHAT IS FORMULA 1 RACING?

Formula 1 Powerboat racing is the most spectacular watersport in the world. It has been described as driving the F1 race car at full speed over a ploughed field. Formula 1 Powerboats accelerate faster than even the most state-of-the-art F1 cars; they are capable of going from standstill to 160 kilometres per hour in only 4 seconds.

Impressive as this is by itself, they compete at these speeds without the use of brakes or gears. It is competitive, fascinating, challenging, daring, risky and entertaining. Formula 1 Powerboat racing is the ultimate extreme sport.

DEFYING THE LAWS OF GRAVITY

Formula 1 Powerboat racing has to be seen to believe. Spectators who are new to this most spectacular watersport are invariably left spellbound when they witness these lightweight catamarans defying the laws of gravity and virtually lifted in the air during high-speed manoeuvre with only a portion of the boat in contact with the water.

It is amazing that these boats can manage to maintain their balance in more than 225kph, taking hairpin turns at 150 kph without brakes and shifting gears, what's more with limited visibility, One tiny error of judgement would spell high-speed disaster.

Driving a powerboat is like piloting a fighter jet. F1 pilots need to have that split-second decision making capability and nerves of steel because once strapped into his fully enclosed safety capsule, he has only his skills, courage and a certain amount of luck to achieve success on the race circuit.

The rivalry between powerboat pilots often thrill the crowds with near-collision overtaking and daring acts as they blazed their boats across the water in high-octane velocity, considerable dexterity and finely tuned driving skills.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

Inaugurated in 1981, this international competition is similar to F1 for cars and similar rules apply. Across the world, teams of different nationalities compete in the Grand Prix, which is regulated by the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM).

THE CHAMPIONSHIP RACES

Races are organised at selected locations around the world based on the water conditions, infrastructures, public access, local hotels amenities and telecommunication facilities. Starting 2009 season, during each F1 World Championship venue there are two Grand Prix races – one race on each day of the venue. Each race lasts for 30 minutes of racing time + 2 laps with up to 24 boats hurtle around the race circuit at thundering speed of 225kph (130mph). All races are broadcast worldwide on TV, on local channels and international networks.

THE CIRCUITS

Every race circuit is different in size, but are generally about 2000 meters in distance. Each circuit has at least one long straightaway and several tight turns, mostly left with one or two right turns. The turns produce a G-force of up to 4.5 on the driver, which means his weight is multiplied 4.5 times as he makes a tight U-turn at over 100 mph (F1 car drivers endure only 2.5).

WATER CONDITIONS

Water conditions play a major part in the outcome of each Grand Prix. With water current and wind conditions varying on every lap and spray being continually showered over the tiny console screen, pilots are quite often driving 'blind' at full speed, mere inches away from their rivals. In the event of a 'barrel-roll' (capsize), a mandatory air bag installed above the pilot's head will inflate upon contact with water. This enables the cockpit to remain above water until rescue arrives. All pilots have a self-contained air supply fitted inside the capsule as an added safety features.

EVENT STARTING POSITIONS

Pole position and starting line-ups are determined by a qualifying session preceding each Grand Prix race. State-of-the-art timing equipment records the performances of each boat to decide the final classification and starting positions.

Each team consists of a manager, one or two pilots, mechanics, radio coordinator, technical coordinator and equipped with infrastructure such as trailer workshop and welcome marquee. They should have one or two catamarans fitted with 2.5 litre engine and compete between 8 to 10 Grand Prix events that make up a full season.

Imagine this: up to 24 lightweight, 16-foot carbon fiber catamaran hurtle around a racing circuit at speeds topping 225kph (130mph); all boats are powered by highly tuned V6 outboard engines, each pumping out 425 horsepower at 10,000 rpm; they boast an awesome power to weight ratio, weighing in at around 500 kilos with a 425hp fully-tuned engine strapped on the transom; they have no brakes or gearboxes. Yes, These are F1 Powerboats.

THE CHAMPIONS

In the last four years there have been four different drivers who have become World Champion. The latest is the American Jay Price who drives for the Qatar Team.

There are a number of new pilots who are making the race more competitive than ever. At each event, about twenty to twenty four pilots represent at least 12 nations, not to mention the countless sponsors, managers, radiomen and women, team members, safety crews and boats, medical staff, doctors, and spectators. The atmosphere is buoyant as tension mounts amongst the competitors, all of whom have worked so hard to be worthy of competing in the F1 Powerboat World Championships.
