The boating lake at The Weston Park International Model Air Show, is hosted and run by Telford Model Boat Club which is an established and well respected club.
The club holds several regattas during the year, covering many of the members interests. The main area that many club members take part in, is hydro racing. This has its origin in the USA and is a very fast form of model boat racing.
The range of boat types covered is large, as is the type of engine. Engines can be powered by electric motors, petrol and methanol based fuel. The power output is very high as is the RPM. Speeds of up to 80 mph are possible on a large lake such as Telford's water at Priorslee and ensure an enthralling experience for all who witness them!
