Thunder on The Cumberland 2017
June 17 – 18 2017
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.
Toyota Thunder on the Cumberland features some of the fastest boats in the world.
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 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.
Drivers will race bridge to bridge in a 3 mile loop between Lower Broadway and Nissan Stadium.
