Thunder on The Cumberland 2017
June 17 – 18 2017
Downtown Nashville

The iconic Thunder on the Cumberland F1 Series Powerboat Championship features some of the fastest boats in the world carving a 3 mile loop on the Cumberland River. A new tradition for Nashville, this three day festival features the summer’s best: ice cold beer, food trucks, family fun, and the southern hospitality you love on Lower Broadway.

The Drivers

F1 Powerboats: F1 Powerboats are some of the biggest, most powerful outboard engines in Powerboat Racing. Most of these boats go from 0 to 100 in 6 seconds and can turn on a dime (generating 5 times the force of earth’s gravity when they do!) all while literally flying across the surface of the water on a thin cushion of air..the only part of the boat that’s actually in the water is the propeller!

Tri-Hulls

Tri-Hulls are just old-school awesome. Based on 1970’s era production boats, these small open-cockpit boats with supersized engines thrive in rough water, speeding into and out of turns with amazing agility.

The Course

Drivers will race bridge to bridge in a 3 mile loop between Lower Broadway and Nissan Stadium.
