About The Adelaide Speedboat Club

The Adelaide Speed Boat Club was first incorporated in 1935 and was situated at Snowdens Beach on the Port River . In 1969 the club moved to its present site at the North Arm, which provides an ideal venue for Powerboat Racing and other water sport activities.

Over the years, many drivers of National repute have developed amongst our ranks.

Within the Powerboat Racing Fraternity, the Adelaide Speedboat Club has a reputation for Quality Event Management and Professionalism (not easy to attain in a totally amateur sport). In 1989 the Australian Formula One Grand Prix Office contracted the club as consultants and race organisers for the Inaugural Formula One Powerboat Grand Prix Event in the Port Docks. Similar services were provided in 1993 for the second Formula One event, which was conducted by the Australian Formula One Powerboat Driver's Association at North Arm.

The Adelaide Speedboat Club in conjunction with the Riverland Power Boat Club at Berri has programmed a Racing Season, consisting of eight events, between October 2008 and June 2009.

In the past, the clubs have attracted a huge contingent of local and interstate competitors and spectators to our waters, including many State, Australian, Australasian, American and one World Champion. This year will be no exception.

Throughout the season, several classes of boats from the Nipper class for children up to Hydroplanes, Formula One Outboards and Supercharged Inboards will compete.

With the competitors come the spectators, and given the layout of the North Arm and Berri sites, whilst in attendance spectators are a "Captive Market" for our commentary team, on-site advertising, program content etc., thus providing an excellent opportunity for Sponsors to raise awareness with the audience.

As with any competitive motor sport, in order to attract the competitors, we need the Sponsorship support.

We in powerboat racing understand that with any form of support, there must be a promise of return benefit for the prospective sponsor. Sponsorship is a "two-way street" and we prefer to view your anticipated support as a partnership.
