Offshore Superboat Championship this weekend!
Thousands of spectators will flock to the Hervey Bay foreshore this coming weekend for the Hervey Bay Boat Club Offshore Superboat Championships!
Fraser Coast Regional Councillor with the Tourism portfolio, Stuart Taylor, said the event was expected to bring a lot of people from outside the region to the Fraser Coast.
‘The Superboats is one of our biggest events on the Fraser Coast calendar. Teams have started arriving in Hervey Bay, bringing along their friends and families to enjoy a long weekend of Superboat action in our beautiful region.’
Additional to the crowds, the Superboat championships will be televised nationally and with the Fraser Coast to be featured in coming months on SBS Speedweek, Foxtel, Sommet Sports (New Zealand), MAV TV (North America) and Motorsports TV APP (Global).
‘The Superboats event airs to over 900,000 viewers across the world so the Fraser Coast is set to receive some fantastic exposure from the final round of the championships,’ said Cr Taylor.
Con Saloumidis from SUV RAM Trucks said he was excited to be back on the Fraser Coast for the final round of the championships.
‘The Fraser Coast always offers such great hospitality during the last and most exciting round of the Offshore Superboat Championships.’
‘The waters of Hervey Bay are so different to anywhere else in Australia that we race. The calm waters allow the boats to go even faster, so be prepared for some exciting racing on Sunday,’ said Mr Saloumidis.
