Hydroplanes will return to Detroit River in August

Unlimited hydroplane racing is returning to the Detroit River after all.

A race for the weekend of Aug. 22-23 is scheduled to be announced this week by UAW-GM and Detroit Riverfront Events.

The Detroit River Regatta Association, which had sponsored the Gold Cup, ceased operations in February and the Gold Cup moved to Tri-Cities, Washington, where it will take place July 25-26.
