A treat for enthusiasts and casual spectators alike!

This Saturday and Sunday (16th and 17th July 2016) will be quite a special weekend for the local powerboat community as Chasewater hosts the PowerBoatGP 2016 Chasewater Grand Prix at our favourite reservoir and country park.

There are races both days, and the action commences at 10:00am and runs through to 5pm, and I believe it’s free to spectate – so why not pop up and take a look?

You can check out the PowerGP website here.

This all harks back to the golden age of powerboat racing at Chasewater and the 24 Hour races – which I’ve covered here before. It’s great to see this kind of thing return.

The organisers of the Chasewater Grand Prix, PowerGP had this to say:

Join us for 2 days of action packed racing as the Chasewater Watersports Centre hosts a round of the Powerboat GP RYA British Championships which will be held at Chasewater Country Park , Pool Road, Nr Brownhills, WS8 7NL
