(Lake Hamilton, Fla.) - HYDRO-PROP, Inc. announced today the 2001 race schedule for the Laughlin Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour Presented by Bud Light. The schedule features eight races for the Formula One Powerboats.
"We're excited about the 2001 Hydros and Formula One schedules," said Bart Garbrecht, CEO of HYDRO-PROP. "Both series return to traditional venues where they have been competing for a number of years and receive remarkable fan support."
"We are also looking forward to Tri-Cities, San Diego, and Detroit, where fans will be treated to deck-to-deck racing from both the Unlimited Hydroplanes and Formula One Powerboats," continued Garbrecht.
