HRL Classes / GP Series

The HRL’s GP Series

The GP Series is the top of the line in the Hydroplane Racing League. There are currently 15 of these massive Grand Prix Class hydroplanes reaching top speeds of up to 225 km/h and fighting for the lead in the HRL Championship.  They will meet nine times from May to September on different racecourses in Quebec, Ontario and the United States.

The 15 teams are working hard to find the magic formula that will make them win; all to the delight of the spectators that never leave their seats during a Grand Prix race.  They sure know how to draw attention and they leave no one indifferent.  All drivers’ hope is to some day join this prestigious class much admired by its fans.

The Hydroplane Racing League

The Hydroplane Racing League was created in 2016 on what the Canadian Hydroplane Association (ACHA) had built over the years. Since 2011, the HRL helped the sport grow by setting an efficient operational framework, implementing clear regulations and finding new racing sites.

The HRL is now focused on developing the hydroplane racing industry and taking the sport to another level by giving it a strong image.

The calendar presently includes 10 weekends of competition, spread from May to September, and attracts thousands of spectators to each event. From Detroit to Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and the Thousand Islands, each site stands out by the competitiveness of its racetracks.

The HRL is always on the lookout for new sites and passionate teams to promote this sport of precision and adrenaline.
