2015 IMPBA Gas Nationals

Hosted by The Rochester Model Boat Club


3 Days of Gas Boat Heat-Racing

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.

IMPBA Gas classes offered :

  • LSG27-Rigger, Sport Hydro, Cat, Mono
  • LSG36-Rigger, Sport Hydro, Cat, Mono
  • Jersey Skiff LSG27 only
  • Classic Thunderboat, Cracker box, and super stock Mono are stock Zenoah only.
  • Twin rigger LSG54 only.
  • Open Offshore will also be offered.

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 !!
There will be 100s of boats and people everywhere

Are you going? I waited too long and only got into the Crackerbox class. Im on the waiting list for Cat and Offshore but it doesn't look promising.
