The tremendous effort from everyone involved in the organization and production of this racing event lets us know that this year will be BIGGER and BETTER than ever!
We would like to thank our Local and State Government for their unwavering support. This event would not be possible without our Sponsors, including our many Lodging, Hospitality and Corporate Sponsors, our dedicated Volunteers, especially our local Servicemen. Thanks to all of them, Thunder on the Gulf is once again ready to ROCK THAT GORGEOUS LIQUID RACE COURSE!
We would like to give a very special thank you to all of the Race Crews for their efforts to participate in this race. Also thank you to John Carbonell and Super Boat International. We are very proud to work with them to present this exciting event.
