COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) -- Hydroplane races will return to Lake Coeur d'Alene this summer.

H1 Unlimited chairman Sam Cole says the organization is delighted to be returning to Coeur d'Alene.
 
He says the 2013 race was well received by the fans and the community.

Organizers say some 50,000 people attended last year's races, although only about 15,000 were paying customers. They hope to double the paying customers this time, to avoid the financial difficulties that followed last year's races.
