It’s all about speed. Their light weight allows them to glide across the lake’s surface as if it were glass.
Boats, that race to speeds of up to 105 miles per hour, will roar across Pontiac Lake in Waterford again this year for Oakland County’s 17th annual Quake on the Lake from July 22-24th.
Grand Prix drivers from across the country will race across Pontiac Lake in Inboard Hydroplane boats, competing for a spot in the record books. In fact, Quake on the Lake holds 21 American Power Boat Association (APBA) records for speed in five different racing classes. This recognition makes Quake on the Lake one of the fastest one-mile race courses in the country.
Take a ride on the Ferris wheel or roller-coaster, pop over to visit the science tent, visit the goats or ride the ponies. It’s a 4-H dream complete with pig races, a birthing tent and horseback riding.
