2011 The Kawasaki Platform Takes Its Third Consecutive Mark Hahn 300 Havasu Title.

The Mark Hahn Memorial 300 mile race is raced every year in memory of fallen endurance racer Mark Hahn. Racers can race Personal Watercraft (PWC’s) solo called Iron Man/Woman or two man teams. Stand-up Jet Skis can race as a single racer or up to three man teams on Stand-ups. Endurance athletes
traveled to Lake Havasu, Az USA from all over the globe to participate in this coveted endurance event. 2011 brought more international racers than any Mark Hahn Race in the race’s history. Belgium, France, Japan, The United Kingdom, Australia, Indonesia and others were represented at the race.

Rain was on the forecast and the winds were blowing from the South resulting in essentially two desperate races, flat on the East side of the course and rough on the West side of the course. Looking at the course from the hot fueling Pits, one would think the course was flat. This was not the case. As the racers progressed down the first leg to the first turn conditions would get rougher followed by confused chop around turn one with wind waves down the backstretch between turn two and three. The weather held out until the final lap of the race as the rain started to cross the lake. The water was cold and the winds were in the 10-20 mph range resulting in white caps and 32 mph winds on the back leg of the course providing a greater challenge to endurance racers. 

Mechanicals would take out almost all of the favored American Race Teams, Incumbent 2010 Mark Hahn 2010 Champion Craig Warner of Monster Kawasaki would suffer a mechanical on his Kawasaki 300X taking him out of the race, 2009 Mark Hahn Champions Mark Gerner and Robert Carreon of PWCOFFSHORE.COM Racing would break an intake grate on their Piston Kawasaki resulting in a full hour off the course but they would return to avoid the DNF, and 2006 Mark Hahn Champion Steve Friebe of PWCOFFSHORE.COM Racing teamed up with Sean Conner also suffered a mechanical early in the race taking them out of contention. Team Follmer and Beck who won the Mark Hahn in 2005 would keep their craft functional even after experiencing a mechanical during the final five laps of the race. This left the European Teams battling it out on the course. Nicolas Ruis was on a blistering fast Turbo Yamaha that was screaming across the course at speeds that looked like they were in excess of 85 mph, he too would suffer a mechanical late in the race taking his Yamaha out of contention. With all remaining major teams out, French racers Pastorello and Carlier would go on to take the victory racing their Kawasaki ULTRA 300X with an impressive time of 4 hours 37 minutes and 8 seconds. Congratulations are in order for their win in only their second attempt at a Mark Hahn 300 Championship!

The Ente / Maeck Team would take second racing their Kawasaki 300X. Aero put in an impressive performance racing the R&D; Yamaha VXR N/A Motor and the Iron Man taking 7th overall. KMG Racing would put in an impressive performance with Dawn Fekete completing the race Iron Woman style and the Bobby Kerns and Aaron Sanchez Team taking the overall Standup Title racing his Kawasaki SXR800.

The Best Pit Crew Award is awarded to the Pit Crew that demonstrates the best teamwork, safety and speed in the pits. The 2011 award went to Team Mike Follmer consisting of Travis Farnsworth Ryan Farnsworth Mike Neiezgodzki, Earl Goudreau and Edward from Walts. Congratulations!

Answay won the 4 Stroke NA Class, Ente Maeck won the 4 Stroke Super Stock Class, Ferrin / Frink won the Manufacturer Stock Class, Pastorello / Carlier won the Pro/Am 4 Stroke Class. Stand-up: Bobby Kerns and Aaron Sanchez won the overall Standup Class, and the Conroy team won the Vet Master Class.

With the Kawasaki ULTRA 300X winning the 2011 Mark Hahn, Kawasaki continues to dominate offshore and endurance racing. Kawasaki has won three consecutive times at the Mark Hahn and three consecutive wins at the Prestigious APBA Long Beach to Catalina and Back Offshore National Championship Race, including the 2009 overall Triple Crown of Offshore (TCO). Kawasaki has won four of the seven Mark Hahn 300 Mile Races.

The next highly anticipated race is the Dana Point, Ca USA to Avalon and Back Offshore Race on March 27, 2011. This will be the first of the three APBA Triple Crown of Offshore (TCO) race series. Entry form and information available here:
