Hydroplane racing (also known as hydro racing) is a sport involving racing hydroplanes on lakes and rivers. It is a popular spectator sport in several countries (at least the U. S., Canada, and Australia), and one of the more commercialized sports.
Limited hydroplane racing
Limited hydroplane racing uses several size classes to ensure fair competition, similar to boxing weight classes.
Unlimited hydroplane racing
A bit of a misnomer, as the boats aren't without limits, the term originated because there are much fewer restrictions than with limited hydroplane racing.
Hydroplane racing safety
In the early days of hydroplane racing, accidents, and even the deaths of drivers, were considered somewhat routine. As top speeds increased, more attention was paid to driver safety, much like with auto racing.
