After returning to the waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene last year, the Diamond Cup will not be held in 2014.
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- The Diamond Cup returned to Idaho's majestic lake town of Coeur d'Alene after a 45 year absence last summer, but in what is sad news for H1 Unlimited Hydroplane racing fans, the event will not be held this year.
The company who put on last year's Diamond Cup, Diamond Cup LLC., failed to complete the necessary requirements the Kootenai County Sheriff's office set to obtain the necessary permits to host the race again this year. Including a plan to pay back the $22,000 owed to Kootenai Fire and Rescue.
North Idaho reporter Gabe Cohen reports the full story in the video above. Below are pictures of Diamond Cup 2013.
