The 52 mile round trip endurance race is one of the oldest offshore PWC end races and the hallmark of Offshore Endurance racing in the United States. Racer's from across the USA, Canada and Australia will descend on Long Beach for their chance at winning the most prestigous LB2CAT trophy and title of Champion for this IJSBA sanctioned National Championship event.
IJSBA National champions will be crowned in all classes; Pro/Am Open, Vet/Master Open, 4 Stroke Stock, 4 Stroke Naturally Aspirated Open and Manufacturer’s Stock (completely stock, no mods whatsoever*). Great giveaways for the Top 3 overall will be an added incentive as the news of the weekend of racing stirs interest in the entire pwc community to enter and be a part of this great annual race.
Please note that for 2019, we must have a minimum of 35 pre paid, pre-registered entries by the June 24th deadline, if not the race will be cancelled (cash, check or CC are acceptable). Please fill out and either email or mail back the attached entry form below and either mail the check payable to RPM Racing or include your CC #'s, no CC will be charged until June 25th if we've reached the 35 entries.
Next, for 2019, The Reef Restaurant has required that lunch ($30/person) be pre-paid a week prior to the awards luncheon/ceremony. If we don't have a minimum of 50 prepaid lunches then we will cancel the awards luncheon at The Reef and hold the awards presentation in the park of South Shores Launch Ramp. Please note that this information too must be included in your registration ie: how many reservations for lunch. I will contact you in late June to collect the money for lunch as this is separate from the entry fee.
