Hovercraft year gets underway

Canberra Times

Chris Fitzgerald, chairman of HoverWorld Expo to be held in Canberra from December 28 – January 3, has launched the build-up to the event by declaring [2004] the Year of the Hovercraft in the United States.

Australian-born Mr. Fitzgerald was the youngest competitor in the world's first hovercraft race on Lake Burley Griffin on March 14, 1964, and the Expo will mark the 40th anniversary of that event.

Mr. Fitzgerald, who is also chairman of the World Hovercraft Organisation, is president of Neoteric Hovercraft, based at Terre Haute, Indiana USA.

He proclaimed 2004 the Year of the Hovercraft when Neoteric employees and representatives of Schenker, the official HoverWorld Expo transport company, gathered in Terre Haute to watch the Expo's PaceCraft set off in a shipping container on its two-month journey to Australia.

The PaceCraft is a deluxe [Neoteric] hovercraft which will be exhibited at museums and other venues throughout Australia until it starts the first world championship hovercraft endurance race on Lake Burley Griffin in December.
