Masport is extremely proud to once again be associated with the NZ Grand Prix Hydroplane Champs and celebrating its 92nd year sponsoring the Masport Cup in 2017. Masport unquestionably has a historic attachment with New Zealand speedboat racing. In 1922 Miss Masport won the NZ Powerboat Association’s championship reaching 31mph. At an average speed of 28mph on a timed course she became New Zealand champion. In 1925 Mason and Porter (now internationally known as Masport) donated a cup to be competed for by the top speed boats of the country, thus was born the Masport Cup, the symbol of supremacy in New Zealand speedboat racing. So in downtown Tauranga over the weekend of 4th & 5th March 2017, we wish all the best to those competing who have put the weeks, months or even years of work into their craft, and look forward to celebrating with the next triumphant challenger to have their name inscribed onto the Masport Cup.
