After 40 Years of Racing This Boat Race Favorite is Gone!
After a bittersweet 40 year long sponsorship of Hydro Racing The O'Boy Oberto has retired. It was announced last year at the season-ending San Diego Bayfair race on Mission Bay, that Oberto would no longer be a sponsor of a Hydro Boat.
The Oberto has been a long time favorite at the Columbia Cup since 1975 and we are sad to see them go!
If you're wondering how this will affect the Oberto's latest hot rod Driver Jimmy Shane? No worries he'll be back and and he's driving for the new to Hydro racing sponsor Home Street Bank! Here's the boat so you'll know who to root for!
