I know the city of Lake Elsinore required 30 boats to reserve the dates and they had 22 commitments in early February.

If you did not run long course for both the ski race and the marathon you could have one more boat. Boat race with bumps is fun.

Lake Elsinore Gran Prix Enduro Race Teams:

We just received word that La Laguna’s RV Park is closed and under construction (only the campground portion of La Laguna) the parking lot and launch ramp are open. However, you can park motorhomes / RVs in the BACK 2 or 3 ROWS (by the palm trees) of the asphalt parking lot for the weekend of our event. You will be charged a nominal fee by La Laguna to camp. Obviously no hook ups.

Please be space conscious when setting up your camp as we need to accommodate both the ski race and boat race teams. Keep in mind, we must keep open fire lanes. NO motorhomes in the 1st 3 or 4 rows (depending on space needed by the boat & water ski race teams) only the back 2 or 3 rows will be used for motorhome parking.

Motorhomes / RVs parked elsewhere will be asked to move. Do not line motorhomes along the front closest to the lake.

Also, food to order will be available on site for both breakfast and lunch.

Thanks!

As I said anyone can drive fast in flat...driving rough water and fast different talent. One bonus to short course is the spectators see the action.

The Nordic & Hallett Boats
Lake Elsinore Gran Prix Enduro
Presented by:
Nick Rose Insurance
Ahern Rentals, Jet Re-Nu, Hot Rod's & Hobbies

The 1st annual Nordic & Hallett Boats Lake Elsinore Gran Prix Enduro Presented by Nick Rose Insurance, Ahern Rentals, Jet Re-Nu, Hot Rod's & Hobbies took place on April 7 & 8 at La Laguna Resort & Boat Launch in Lake Elsinore. Endurance powerboat racing pits boating enthusiasts against professional powerboat racers from all areas of the sport, flatbottom vs. mod VP outboard, Inboard powered V bottom vs. jet boats. 16 entries in 7 divisions were on hand to see if they could not only win their respective division and become the “King of the Lake” the title bestowed on the overall champion for the endurance race. The Le Man’s start kicked off the race with all entrants lined up on the banks of the Lake Elsinore waiting for the flag to drop. What can only be described as one of the best starts in power boat racing, the teams made their way South to the 2ndt turn up some 2.5 miles down the length of the lake. Leading the 1st lap was the #193 Nordic & Hallett Race team from Lake Havasu City, AZ with Randy Davis at the wheel. From that point on the Enduro would be a game of attrition and who could survive to claim the win. Davis & co-driver Gordon Jennings would have to pick up the pace after a required pit stop left them in the 4th spot giving the lead to #54 also a Div. VII Nordic hull driven by Krude Boyz Race Team Owner Dirk Olsen, Anthem, AZ and his Co-Driver Ryan Heiser, Dickinson, ND. 3rd overall at this point would be veteran outboard and Div. VI Steve Linder #307 from Henderson NV driving the Mercury/Stoker. As the checkered flag was raised to conclude day #1, Brian Vessely, LakeHavasu City, AZ #222 Div. III spun in turn 4 leaving Steve Davis #737 Nordic Racing nowhere to go except through the Velocity Production Ski boat sending both driver's to the hospital with what turned out thankfully to be minor injuries. For Sunday, all teams lined up in the finish order from Saturday minus the #222 & #737. Again, the start proved to be a great equalizer and the Div. IV Grand Nationals roared to the front of the pack hot on the heels of the two Nordic's. Two hours later the 1st annual Lake Elsinore Gran Prix Enduro had come to it's conclusion and with that the #193 Team of Randy Davis & Gordon Jennings grabbed the top spot to claim the overall & Div. VII win and the Title “King of the Lake” for 2018. Congratulation to the Division champions: Mike Purcyznski, Hemet CA #151 Div. I, Kevin Taylor #234, Henderson NV- Div. II, Tanner Kelm & Nick Batchelor, Long Beach, CA #562 - Div.III, Cole Noble, Lomita, CA GN#30 - Div. IV, Steve Linder Div. VI Champ. Congratulation to all entrants of this years grand event.

It wasn't bad and for those that committed and raced it was a great event, for those that committed and didn't show it sucks as I specifically asked for commitments of 30 entries to host this event as to lose money on an event is just not a good business model. 28 people initially committed which is why I pulled the trigger hoping we'd get to 30 but having a good comfort level of 28 but then it dropped to 26 and then 24 but on race day I could have never predicted it dropping to 16. Lesson learned and next year it will take 30 committed entries or there won't be a race. I fully understand family, life and boat "issues" but next year it will be non refundable entry fee upon commitment as it's not the 1st time I've been burned but in this case it will be my last.
