There is no off-season in offshore racing. Race World Offshore (RWO) has been preparing for the 2024 kick-off event in the APBA National Series, the RWO 7-Mile Offshore Grand Prix in Marathon, Florida. From April 26th to 28th, this spectacular race, now in its second year, is all set to offer more excitement and heart-pounding action that our teams and fans love.
MARATHON, FL: A BREATHTAKING BACKDROP
The 2024 RWO 7-Mile Offshore Grand Prix is an event you don’t want to miss in the beautiful Florida Keys! Despite facing challenging weather conditions last year, Race World Offshore has been working tirelessly to enhance the overall experience. This year with two active cranes along with changes to the Dry Pits and staging areas, we’re expecting a smoother and more exhilarating race event.
The Gulf of Mexico, with the iconic “7-Mile Bridge” as its stunning backdrop, isn’t just a challenging race course but also an experience like no other to walk on the old bridge and see the entire race course.
OCEAN CITY, MD: A NEW ADDITION TO THE SERIES
We’re also beyond excited to introduce the new addition to our racing venues – Ocean City, Maryland. This location is a dream come true for both racers and fans. The convention center parking lot in Ocean City is perfectly suited for “Dry Pits,” offering more than ample space and convenience. Furthermore, its proximity to the cranes and the inlet makes it an ideal spot for both preparation and race execution. This will be one of the premier venues of the series. Not to mention the seemingly never-ending ocean boardwalk with shops, restaurants, and entertainment. A destination location on the East Coast to witness racing offshore in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, not the interconnecting bays.
Ocean City’s addition to the series marks a significant expansion of our racing landscape, offering a new array of challenges and experiences for our teams and a fresh, exciting venue for our spectators.
CLEARWATER BEACH, CONTINUING WITH MORE
The excitement and anticipation for the Clearwater Nationals has seen tremendous growth in team entries, sponsor support, and fan involvement over the years. We’ve been working hard to improve the various pit locations and looking at different solutions to create an even better layout for teams and fans. Our goal is to bring more fans into the venue and attract more interaction with fans and vendors.
As we gear up for these exciting events, both teams and sponsors can expect a host of new experiences and an even more thrilling atmosphere. The city of Marathon is eagerly anticipating the return of the teams, and the addition of Ocean City is sure to bring a new dimension to the series.
Race World Offshore, alongside the cities of Marathon, Ocean City, and Clearwater, extends a warm invitation to all teams, fans, and sponsors to be a part of these spectacular events. The season opener, RWO 7-Mile Offshore Grand Prix, and the entire APBA National Series is not just about racing; it’s about the journey to be an APBA National Champion.
Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready for an adrenaline-packed race season!
