About Mentor Offshore Grand Prix:

The Mentor Offshore Grand Prix is a free family-friendly event sanctioned by Raceworld Offshore that will showcase over 20 super boats from around the world. They will be competing at this high-energy, action-packed race held at Headlands Beach State Park on Sunday, July 22, 2018.

The race will take place on Sunday but an entire weekend of activities is planned. The Great Lakes Mall in Mentor, Ohio will serve as the primary staging area beginning on Friday, July 20, 2018. In addition, there will be a boat parade ending in Down Town Willoughby, Ohio on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM.

The public will have an opportunity to get close to the boats as well as their crews all weekend at the Great Lakes Mall to ask questions and take photos. Boats will conduct test runs on Saturday which can be viewed from Headlands Beach during Beachfest from 12 Noon to 5PM. The roar will definitely hit the shore on Sunday, July 22rd for a full day of racing beginning at 12 Noon as these million-dollar performance machines compete in a series of races at speeds over of 180 MPH.
