History Will Be Coming Alive At Florida Vintage Raceboat Club’s Tavares Spring Thunder

If your into classic or historic race boats then this weekend is for you, as the 2020 American Power Boat Associations Vintage season starts this week in Tavares, Florida. The Florida Vintage Raceboat Club annual spring event plays host to race boats of all classes and eras coming together for an exhibition weekend on the water. These historic boats are all restored and fully capable of showcasing what they are capable of doing.

From hydroplanes to tunnel boats there is something for everyone as over 52 boats are registered. You can also be sure to spot some living legends walking around the pits and even running. Our very own BoatStars Vintage Race Team will also be in attendance as always this year bringing the 20’ Switzer Wing Thunder Ball which will be piloted by Chris Boyd and the 18’ ex world champion Switzer Wing Miss Diablo driven by Ted Boyd. Pits begin filling up Friday with heats throughout Saturday and Sunday. The event is also included on our BoatStars Event Locator tool for more information.
