COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- Hydroplane racing on Lake Coeur d'Alene returned on Friday after a more than 40 year hiatus.
This will be the first Diamond Cup race on the lake since 1968 and because of that, many questions about how things like parking, transportation, and security would work out. Some people attending had to park and take a shuttle more than five miles away because there was simply no other option.
The lack of transportation inside the race sit was the biggest complaint it seemed. Fans walked every along Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive as soon as shuttles dropped them off and the nearest food stands were more than a mile away from some areas.
The Diamond Cup Race will go on through Labor Day Weekend.
