Wet & Wild 2.0 makes a splash

Pick your pleasure: Superbikes screaming around a road course or snowmobiles flying around¬† buoys on open water. Fortunately, fans can have both this weekend during BIR’s Wet & Wild Weekend 2.0.

It’s a dual event weekend for fans who can watch both types of racing for a single ticket.

For the International Watercross Association, this weekend will be the final race on the schedule. Riders will be racing in eight different classes, including drag racing and oval racing around floating buoys. During oval racing, riders take off from shore, make four or five laps around the buoys and return to the same shore. Fans can watch from the shores of the lake.

The Central Roadracing Association (CRA) will be on BIR’s historic 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course for three days of thrilling Superbike racing. It’s the last CRA weekend of the season, so bike counts will be high and speeds will be ridiculous as riders take on the track’s 10 turns and the mile-long straightaway.

Friday’s CRA schedule includes practice sessions followed by six-lap races on Saturday. Sunday’s finale is a 5-Hour Endurance Race.

Daily admission is $25, and kids 12 and under are free. Parking is also free.
