Yamaha Sponsors 2014 IJSBA 10th Annual Hot Products Mark Hahn Memorial Endurance Race

 Fountain Valley, CA – Fresh off its domination on the closed course at the IJSBA World Finals, Yamaha WaterCraft is returning to Lake Havasu City, AZ in February to sponsor the 2014 IJSBA Hot Products Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 Endurance Race.

 The Mark Hahn race, to be held Feb. 22 at Crazy Horse Campground, is recognized as the “longest continuous personal watercraft race” in the world. The race is designed to be a lifestyle event that allows first time racers as well as veteran racers to compete at their own level where everyone walks away a winner having just competed in and completed the grueling 300 mile journey. There are so many variables in the event - from fuel stops, rider changes, rough water conditions and attrition - that it is very possible that a stock boat with an inexperienced racer could walk away the overall winner.

 

 “The Hahn memorial race uniquely aligns with our brand values of durability, reliability, and performance,” said Andrew Cullen, Marketing Communications Manager at Yamaha WaterCraft Group.  “It challenges the rider and the machine in a way that no other race does, and we look forward to helping bring this event to another group of racers next year.”

 

The annual race was created in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn who was instrumental in promoting endurance PWC racing across the country before his untimely death in 2004. The “Team” format features two riders for runabout (sit down) boat teams and up to three riders for a stand-up craft. Solo riders are also welcome to “Ironman” the race on either style of boat, a real test of endurance and stamina.


9th Annual Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 Set for February 23, 2013 in Lake Havasu

2013 DATE ANNOUNCED FOR THE IJSBA NATIONAL TEAM ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA – March 12, 2012: The date for The Ninth Annual “World’s Longest Continuous PWC Race” was announced today by the event promoter Jim Russell, DSM Events owner, and Executive producer Mike Follmer. The 2013 Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 mile National Team Endurance Race is all set to launch on February 23, 2013 from Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The event will once again be sanctioned by the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA), and it is expected to draw a record number teams from around the globe as well as all of the top PWC racers from the US. The Teams will be competing against each other while trying to break the 300 mile record of 4 hours 17.35 minutes set by the 2012 Mark Hahn Memorial Overall winners Jean Bruno Pastorello and Pierre Carlier of Team Kawasaki.

The race is being held again in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn who was instrumental in providing the momentum to keep endurance racing going strong and growing across the country before his untimely death during a PWC race in 2004. The “Team” format features two riders for runabout (sit down) boat teams and up to three riders for a stand-up craft. Solo riders are also welcome to “Ironman” the race on either style of boat, a real test of endurance and stamina reserved for only the true endurance zealots. The 2012 event was the fifth PWC event to use transponders in the United States and has been well received and helped to increase the professionalism of this national event. Transponders will be used in the 2013 event as well.

“The race is returning to Crazy Horse Campground’s Main Beach site for this very important event”, said Jim Russell, “and the 10 mile course we have approval from the Coast Guard will pit all the teams against the wind, rough water and long runs that this event has become synonymous with.” In addition to all the weather and water conditions all the teams have to contend with, they will also be required to make fuel stops, without spilling fuel, and make rider changes several times during the race, while modifying their race strategies as the race progresses. There will be six different classes competing on the race course simultaneously, with all the racers competing for the overall title. At the conclusion of the race, each class winning team will be crowned the IJSBA National Team Endurance Champion for their respective class. A first-class awards program that once again will be held at the Aquatic center Rods and Recs room.

The awards banquet will feature a sit down dinner for over 300 people and over 75 award trophies to be presented to overall and class winners with a host of special awards that will again surprise their worthy recipients.”

Entry forms and entry information sheets will be released in late Dec 2012 for the February 23rd 2013 event.
