Five Unlimited Hydroplanes will be in the Tri-Cities to test prior to the start of the 2017 H1 Unlimited Hydroplane season.

On Friday, June 2 from 9:00am – 5:00pm, race fans can see the U-1 Miss Homestreet, driven by Jimmy Shane, the reigning H1 Champion; Miss Graham Trucking, U-9 Red Dot/Les Schwab; U-18 Bucket List Racing; and a very special treat, the 1973 Pay n Pak, all running test laps on the HAPO Columbia Cup course in preparation for the 2017 racing season. The boats will be staged in the Neil F. Lampson pits, right under the blue bridge. Admission is free.

During testing, boaters are reminded to avoid the race course, which is located between Wade Park, Pasco and Columbia Park, Kennewick.
