    Feb 26, 2011 - Hot Products APBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300

    Seventh Annual Hot Products


    APBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300


    Set for February 26th in Lake Havasu




    2011 DATE ANNOUNCED FOR THE APBA NATIONAL TEAM ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP


    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA - March 23, 2010: The seventh Annual “World’s Longest Continuous PWC Race” was announced today by the event promoterJim Russell, DSM Events owner, and Executive PR producer Mike Follmer. The 2011 Hot Products APBA Mark Hahn Memorial, Havasu 300 Mile National Team Endurance Race is all set to launch on February 26, 2011 from Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The event will once again be sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association (APBA), and it is expected to draw a record number teams from around the globe as well as all of the top PWC racers. The Teams will be competing against each other while trying to break the 300 mile record of 4 hours 33.31 minutes set by the 2010 Mark Hahn Memorial Overall winners Craig Warner and Victor Sheldon 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 2010 event was the first PWC event to use transponders in the United States and it was well received and help to increase the professionalism of this national event. Transponders will be used in the 2011 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 for 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 APBA National Team Endurance Champion for their respective class. A first-class awards sit down dinner will once again be held at the Aquatic center Rods and Recs room.

    After the gigantic success and world wide recognition received in the press of 2010 event Mark Hahn Memorial, it is expected that a record number of entries will come out for the seventh annual event. Mike Follmer said, “We’re gearing up to make the 2011 event outshine what we did in 2010 by getting more giveaways and even nicer trophies for the massive awards banquet at the Aquatic center that will far surpass what we did in 2010. We have on the water still photography and magazine coverage to chronicle the event for the riders. 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.”

    We are very fortunate to have Hot Products USA return as the title sponsor of the 2011 event as well as many other great sponsors that have helped support this exciting event. All of the pre-race attention and planning for the 2011 APBA Mark Hahn Memorial will guarantee that it will far surpass the previous years which have been heralded by many as the “Best PWC race of the year”! Get your teams together and your entry in early to make sure you don’t miss out on this great experience.

    Entry forms and entry information sheets were released soon for the February 26th event. Entry forms, race information, updates and results will be posted on the Mark Hahn web site in December 2010 www.pwcfun.com/markhahn300.asp, www.pwctoday.com, www.apbaracing.com, and www.pwcoffshore.com.

    From the desk of Mike Follmer;

    This race is an APBA Sanctioned event and as such, ALL riders MUST be APBA Racing Members and you will need to enter the class that your APBA card shows VERY IMPORTANT. If your card says PRO then you must run the Pro/Am class. If you are not now but want to become an APBA Racing Member, please call Patrick Mell at (586)773-9700 or go online at www.apbaracing.com to sign up.

    The Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 Team Race is a stand-alone event to honor our fallen friend Mark Hahn. It is not part of the annual point races and therefore there will be seven (7) classes only, as listed on the entry form. There is a transponder rental fee of $30.00 that will be paid at registration to E TimeIt. All transponders need to be returned after the race - if they are not returned you will be charged $250.00.

    Get your team set and your entry in early to avoid the $50.00 late fee which will be levied if your paid entry is not received by DSM two weeks prior to the race. No entries will be accepted on race day. DSM will accept VISA, MASTERCARD or a check for the entry fee to make payment very easy. If anyone has a problem with this entry system or wants to make special arrangements, please contact Jim Russell at DSM immediately at [email protected] or phone at (928-764-2210, Extension 615) in an effort to limit the confusion on race day and insure that the race gets started exactly on time.

    All entrants MUST have eight inch (8”) black number(s) on a white background to be scored. Numbers will NOT be available at the race site on race day, nor may you enter on race day. Each entry includes two (2) dinner bands, which are REQUIRED to gain entrance to the awards ceremony and dinner. Additional dinner bands can be purchased on the entry form.

    Awards will be for First through Tenth in the Overall order and First through Third in each Class. The awards are really special for this event.

    The Awards Ceremony will be held at the Aquatic Center. Doors will open at 6:30 PM, with the ceremony beginning at 7:30 PM. NO ONE WILL GET IN WITHOUT A DINNER BAND.

    Message for VX110 Class Riders, from Skiwi;
    "Three years ago, Jim & Mike extended classes in the MH300 to include a special Yamaha VX110 class. A class for existing & first time racers (& racers from across the country and abroad) to compete in one of the best jet ski races in the USA. A same make/model class where anyone could have a chance of taking home a trophy.

    In the past, we provided a support team for racers but this has proven to be very costly & time consuming. Unfortunately, we can no longer absorb these costs (staff, accommodation, meals, transportation, ATV's, etc) as we have in previous years. However, we will still provide any team a VX110 & trailer should they wish to compete. The ski's have just been serviced, new spark plugs, oil, filter, props, GPSed, etc. Ski's can be picked up from our location in Henderson (Las Vegas) on Wednesday/Thursday and returned on Monday. This will give you a chance to do some testing & add your own numbers/sponsors advertising. The cost is just $250.

    Please don't leave it until the last week to organize a ski as we have a limited number of single trailers. You will need a 4x4 ATV with a 1 7/8" or 2" ball.
