Formula One Superboat Grand Prix's in Australia are comparable to international competitions held in Europe, North America, Asia and South Africa. Crowds in the thousands are attracted to Grand Prix's which are conducted within the major cities and other large population centres.

Formula One class racing has a long history abroad and a strong following in Europe, Asia, US and Middle East. The Australian Association staged events from 1989 to 1997, when the association appointed a management company, Australian F1 Superboat Series Management Pty Ltd. Headed by Managing Director Kirk Tsaccounis, the management company was appointed to manage and stage events with the goal of further developing the category into future.

Today the series is held over eight rounds on the Australian eastern seaboard and attracts crowds of over 10, 000 at major CBD venues.

Formula One Superboat Grand Prix is suited to both television and spectator viewing as it is an extreme sport that is fast and colourful. Competition is held on a tight course providing continuous action and excitement for spectators of all ages.

Unlike other forms of motor sport, powerboat racing can be viewed from one spot taking advantage of the short tight circuits that make this sport exciting and entertaining.

In more recent years the series has obtained strong support from local and national companies along with a growing support from local and state governments. Due to the larger audiences, the series is also a tourist attraction in areas where these events are being held.

With the overwhelming growth in the last two years, the series is now moving the events closer to larger centres, to capitalise on the large audiences and commercial benefits, further enhancing the sports future growth.
Rhys Coles will not be letting Trask have it all his own way -  Australian F1 Superboat Series - f1boat.com.au?nid=40539  


This year sees David Trask returning to defend a hard fought and won crown; with his crash at Qatar no doubt in the back of his mind, Trask will be doing his utmost to keep the outgoing champion, Rhys Coles, and the rest of the field, at bay.

2008 certainly promises to be an exciting year with some new venues, new teams and added television exposure on the free to air Nine networks (Speed Machine) program.

The New Year will also see the F1 Superboat Series contesting two rounds on the Gold Coast which will host the Powerboat racing event for the UIM General Assembly in conjunction with the APBA.
