    I agree Joe. But, who would have thought this one event would have turned into such a large event?? Plus, you gotta have insurance, etc........so, you have to have rules.
    Are you gonna race/watch this year? Better be fricking warm-that's all I gotta say

    Mark Hahn

    Hi Joe:


    I saw your post and wanted to respond as I think there is some misconceptions:


    "wow thats a shit ton of rules for a race named after a man that just wanted everyone to race and excluded no one."

    1st- the event was re-named the Mark Hahn Memorial 300 after his death, prior it was the Havasu 300 and most of the rules were already in place. Also, when I first met Mark he was adamant about having different classes racing with rules for each class to maintain parity.


    2nd- The rules are in place because this event has prize money and it's easy to have a racer come back after the fact and say "so and so was cheating" if there are not rules. This is one event that gets some modicum of factory support and it would be devastating to announce a winner that was running a "hybrid" combination. I'm assuming you are upset about the Runabouts NO GP rule? Please note that the Hahn still has factory support from the Mfg's and we don't want to chance a PR nightmare if a GP runabout boat won the Hahn, then for sure there will be NO factory support in the future. A mfg has to able to use the win to advertise (which they do from the Hahn) and if a Kawi-Doo or Yama-Doo or some such GP style boat won Kawi, Yamaha and Sea-Doo would never come back and then the race goes away.


    All the best!

    First off i am not and was not upset. I fully understand why there are rules and why gp class boats are excluded. Having said that I think Mark Hahn would have wanted this type of ski included some how hell the GPRXP idea was hatched in a conversation between Mark Hahn and Mark Clemons. Im pretty sure a mildly modded GPRXP or sho conversion would run away with this race in semi smooth to smooth conditions. My ski would last a lap or two.....maybe.

    Sure

    I understand your point but if there were NO Mfg's involved then definitely open up a GP class but if a GP boat won with the Mfg's support that currently exists then we have a problem, which I'm sure you can appreciate. If Mark were alive today maybe there would be a GP class, who knows.

    If the Salton Sea happens (March 2, 3 & 4) why not come out and set the World Record for a GP R/A? There's a group out of New Jersey that's planning on coming out to establish the record, would be cool to see who has the fastest GP R/A. Hope AMSOIL says yes so the event happens!

    Ouch!!! I would love too but those dates are the first race in the ADBA drag boat series... I love putting 10 and 11 second boats on the trailer.
