Too bad about Cleveland...It had the single largest turnout this year for a national race, if I'm not mistaken.

The FT lauderdale race is a divisional race, the Art Kriner memorial
it is open to the first 50 boats to register. they are looking at it becoming a natioal race the following year. The Aqua toy store and several others are already on board with sponsorship.

Okay Mr. Ted Zoli, why is Cleveland not on the schedule for 2003?
Being from upstate New York, like yourself, it was one of the closest races for the Northern and Midwest fans to attend.
We are curious. Thanks for any replies.

I agree, where is Cleveland! I came from South Carolina both years and was planning a third trip!

Just a great race, at least Savannah is still on.

Yeah, what's up with Cleveland? I thought the city was on board for at least one more year?

It had a great racer turnout (10 supercats when the average for the other races was about 5), great spectating, and the chance for great racing with half of the race inside the breakwall and half outside.

Here's from this past year:

"Powerboat events to become regular"
08/09/2002
Bob Migra
Plain Dealer Reporter

American Power Boat Association President Ted Zoli said he expects the Cleveland Offshore Grand Prix will become an annual event.

The Cleveland stop is the only APBA national race in the Midwest. It is the fifth race of a nine-race series that culminates in the world championships in Key West, Fla., Nov. 21-24. Cleveland had its first national race last August.

"Cleveland is a wonderful place to run," Zoli said. "The last time I was in town was 20 years ago and the difference is unbelievable."

Zoli said the paid attendance at last summer's inaugural race was about 3,500, with probably at least that many more spectators watching from boats or other free locations. He said he thinks the attendance could easily double this weekend.
