Gulfport Grand Prix

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join b98.7 on Sunday, April 30th at The Gulfport Grand Prix.

The first annual Gulfport Grand Prix, featuring 120-mile-an-hour Formula Powerboat Racing, will descend upon Gulfport, Florida on April 28 - 30, 2017. This free to the public event, in cooperation with the City of Gulfport, will transform the downtown area into a mecca of activity along Shore and Beach Boulevards. Formula Powerboats, with an open public pit area, will make the Gulfport Recreation Center their home for the weekend, while an antique boat show and a pleasure boat display will be staged along Shore Blvd. S. Vendor booths lining Beach Blvd. S. will serve as the main entrance and free parking shuttle drop off area.
Conducted by S.P.O.R.T. (Southern Professional Outboard Racing Tour), the world-class, high speed racing action will take place on Boca Ciega Bay just off the beach. Easy viewing areas will be available for fans and located at the center of the excitement. Supporting classes include the bump-and-grind Tri-Hulls and the tight turning Formula Lights. Proceeds to benefit PARC (Providing Advocacy & Recognizing Capabilities), a local non-profit organization whose mission is to provide children and adults with developmental disabilities an opportunity to exercise their independence and experience life to the fullest.
