Something a little different this weekend. There will be a test session for unlimited hydroplanes on Lake Guntersville on Saturday, as a proving event for a full-fledged race to be held there a year from now. The session will be held just east of downtown Guntersville from 9 to 4, and I presume admission for anyone who wants to watch will be free. There is a levee trail which will provide prime viewing. Only 2 boats are participating: the defending champion U-1 Homestreet Bank from Madison, IN, and the local boat, the U-27 from nearby Gadsden. There is the possibility of a vintage hydroplane replica (with V-12 aircraft engine!) as well. So if you're in the area and want to see the world's fastest racing boats, a couple will be on the water in Guntersville on Saturday.
