After 16 years of thunderous hydroplane racing and family-friendly fun, Tastin’ n Racin’ will come to an end.

Citing rising expenses and unreasonable insurance requirements, organizers made the decision to end the summer event, held at Lake Sammamish State Park, effective immediately.

Over the years, Tastin’ n Racin’ gave Eastside communities the opportunity to experience the excitement of hydroplane racing, up close and personal.

The event also hosted classic car shows, motorcycle charity rides and carnival rides through the years.

Tastin’ n Racin’ became a model event for boat races across the country, where they adopted the formula of combining a family festival on the land with the thrill of racing on the water.

In a press release, the organizers thanked past attendees, volunteers and Lake Sammamish State Park for their support.

    That’s sad. We go every year and I was working on a car to bring to the car show one year soon.

Got something to say?
