The Junior Hydroplanes, where kids can start racing at the age of 9, have top speeds of roughly 42 MPH, where adults can reach up to 80+ MPH dependant on their class — and it’s all on your knees! This family-oriented sport features some of the best racing action on the water — ­ and the hub is in the State of Michigan, with MHRA being one of the largest outboard racing clubs in the Nation! The MHRA will have two boats on display at the Show — one, which is a Junior Hydroplane of the J Classes with a 15 HP Mercury engine on the back to which speeds of around 42 MPH can be reached. They will also have a C Stock Hydroplane of the adult Stock Outboard Class, which can reach speeds in the upper 60 MPH range, powered by a Yamato Race Engine.
