IMPBA District 1 is proud to be hosting the 2015 Gas Nationals for the first time in this part of the country. The Rochester Model Boat Club will be running the race at Carey Lake in Macedon, NY. This is one of the biggest events of the year for IMPBA racing with over 200 boats. As an added bonus for all in attendance, Lake Carey features a restaurant on site and a Friday night prime rub buffet. Campers will be allowed but no shore power hookups. Open water testing will start on July 15th and racing on the 15th through the 18th. SUnday is reserved for racing if necessary.
Gas-powered boat racing is one of the most exciting segments of the hobby, with large gas boats racing a clockwise oval at speeds between 50-70mph. If you've never seen 5-6 boats battling for 1st place, hugging the buoys as each one tries to find the shortest distance around the oval, I highly suggest you make your way to the 2015 IMPBA Gas Nats.

I seen a few 1/5 scale BAJA gas races and I thought there'd be 100s there but boy was I wrong lol
Maybe 15 people and 3-4 racers
If you want to see a BIG GROUP of gas racers go to one of these events !!
