A HUGE holiday crowd of over 2000 with an additional 1000 positioning themselves freely on the roadside around the lake witnessed the highlight of the day the running of the Glenmaggie Cup where winner Grant Harrison of Melton reached speeds of 170 mph on his runs down the straight in his boat GP1.
 
Visitors from all over Australia, even as far as Queensland and Western Australia,  flocked to Lake Glenmaggie in family groups, taking full advantage of the viewing spots on the well grassed lawns to enjoy the 31 race program, where 54 drivers in all classes gave spectators a thrill.

A Glenmaggie and District Boat Club representative said he was pleased with the crowd and the support from Wellington Shire, Heyfield Community Bendigo Bank and local businesses which helped stage such an outstanding sporting event.
