    2013 Mark Hahn 300 date

    9th Annual Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300
    Set for February 23, 2013 in LakeHavasu
    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CAMarch 12, 2012: The date for The Ninth Annual “World’s Longest Continuous PWC Race” was announced today by the event promoterJim Russell, DSM Events owner, and Executive producer Mike Follmer. The 2013 Hot Products IJSBA Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300 mile National Team Endurance Race is all set to launch on February 23, 2013 from Crazy Horse Campground in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The event will once again be sanctioned by the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA), and it is expected to draw a record number teams from around the globe as well as all of the top PWC racers from the US. The Teams will be competing against each other while trying to break the 300 mile record of 4 hours 17.35 minutes set by the 2012 Mark Hahn Memorial Overall winners Jean Bruno Pastorello and Pierre Carlier of Team Kawasaki. The race is being held again in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn who was instrumental in providing the momentum to keep endurance racing going strong and growing across the country before his untimely death during a PWC race in 2004. The “Team” format features two riders for runabout (sit down) boat teams and up to three riders for a stand-up craft. Solo riders are also welcome to “Ironman” the race on either style of boat, a real test of endurance and stamina reserved for only the true endurance zealots. The 2012 event was the fifth PWC event to use transponders in the United States and has been well received and helped to increase the professionalism of this national event. Transponders will be used in the 2013 event as well. “The race is returning to Crazy Horse Campground’s Main Beach site for this very important event”, said Jim Russell, “and the 10 mile course we have approval from the Coast Guard will pit all the teams against the wind, rough water and long runs that this event has become synonymous with.” In addition to all the weather and water conditions all the teams have to contend with, they will also be required to make fuel stops, without spilling fuel, and make rider changes several times during the race, while modifying their race strategies as the race progresses. There will be six different classes competing on the race course simultaneously, with all the racers competing for the overall title. At the conclusion of the race, each class winning team will be crowned the IJSBA National Team Endurance Champion for their respective class. A first-class awards program that once again will be held at the Aquatic center Rods and Recs room. The awards banquet will feature a sit down dinner for over 300 people and over 75 award trophies to be presented to overall and class winners with a host of special awards that will again surprise their worthy recipients.” Entry forms and entry information sheets will be released in late Dec 2012 for the February 23rd 2013 event. Entry forms, race information, updates will be posted on the Mark Hahn web site at:,,, and Presenting Sponsors. Hydro Turf,Yamaha Motor Corp Usa Inc ,Sea Doo BRP, Speed Energy,Clawsons Motorsports, Kommander Ind,Tech One Racing,, R&D Performance Parts, Riva Motorsports, Motul, Discount Tire.

    Also, tons of pics from the water from the 2012 race. Thanks to Oside Bill for the use (and death and hopeful rebirth) of the SUV for the pics. Not entirely sure if I'll be there this year. Lots of changes at work.
