US F1 Powerboat Tour

US Formula 1 Powerboat Tour is North America’s premier tour for Formula One and Formula Lights, also known as SST-45.

The Formula One outboard, for nearly five decades, has been recognized as the world’s most spectacular racing powerboat. Formula One boats are sleek, glamorous and extremely light. Their 375-horsepower Mercury and Johnson engines propel them to speeds of 130 miles per hour. Formula One boats are able to turn almost instantaneously, incurring more "G" forces than any other racing machine on earth. With lightning speed and nimble handling, the Formula One boats and their world-class drivers thrill audiences with deck-to-deck, sponson-banging competition. This brand of racing typically produces the biggest motorsports event of the year in the markets it visits. Through live attendance and media coverage, Formula One racing reaches hundreds of thousands of consumers each season. US Formula 1 Powerboat Tour races are the centerpieces of weekend festivals that often are the biggest entertainment event of the year in their communities. These events increase tourism, boost awareness of regional attractions and businesses and generate millions of dollars in economic activity. Annual boat races often are woven into the fabric of a community and become an anticipated focus of corporate hospitality activities.

Most events will include the SPORT F1 and Formula Lights boats, which are similar in appearance to the Formula One machines raced internationally on the UIM circuit..

Formula Lights boats are 14 feet in length and reach speeds up to 75 mph. This is the entry level class into tunnel boat racing where some of the sport’s most successful names have started in.
