Mercury Racing Factory Tour in Fond du Lac

As a prelude to this weekend’s Mercury Racing Midwest Challenge in Sheboygan, the world-class manufacturer of marine and automotive engines opened the doors to its 120,000 sq.ft. facility in nearby Fond du Lac yesterday as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations.

Amongst those invited behind the scenes was P1 CEO, Azam Rangoonwala who said: “The factory tour was a very special way to kick off this unique event here in Wisconsin. We were asked in January 2022 to stage a powerboat race to celebrate Mercury Racings fifty years of innovation and it was a great experience to visit their global headquarters here on the southern shore of Lake Winnebago. This weekend we move to Lake Michigan to enjoy two days of racing with around 40 powerboats in action.”

Mercury has invested significantly in its primary production facility at Fond du Lac where it manufactures not only propulsion systems but also propellers, accessories and parts.
