Sail-World.com : Powerboat P1 launches AquaX competition series

Powerboat P1 launches AquaX competition series

'AquaX'    Powerboat P1
Powerboat P1 Management Ltd has announced the launch this summer of a revolutionary new Jet Ski competition series, AquaX (pronounced 'Aqua Cross'). This new championship will be the only Jet Ski series in the UK taking place on the sea rather than on inland waters.

P1 AquaX events will run alongside the 2011 Powerboat P1 SuperStock Championship at high-profile venues around the country, from as far south as Plymouth to Liverpool in the north-west, offering top class entertainment for both spectators and competitors.

Specifically designed to attract amateur riders to enter the sport, this unique sea-based series offers competitors a hugely exciting challenge. The race tracks will be simple and wide-open, and will be patrolled by trained race marshals to ensure safety at all times.

Head of P1 AquaX and former Jet Ski racing champion, Lisa Barsby, says; 'We are delighted to be launching this new series. There are many recreational jetskiers out there who have wanted to try their hand at competitive riding for some time now, and AquaX will provide the perfect arena for them to open up their throttles and enjoy the full performance of their craft in a safe, controlled environment.

And because of the ever-changing coastal conditions, the rider’s skill will prevail over horsepower, to create a level playing field for all.'

AquaX is open to all types of watercraft, with Yamaha, Kawasaki and BRP (Seadoo) models expected to race unmodified in two classes - 200 and 300hp – an attractive prize purse will be on offer for riders enrolled in the championship.

Each two-day AquaX event will consist of two disciplines. Saturdays will see AquaX Match Racing, with competitors going head to head in a timed knock-out competition. On Sundays, the action will move to the P1 SuperStock race tracks, in a series of Rally Races where the focus switches to endurance riding and stamina over large courses.

Much like the P1 SuperStock powerboat racing series, AquaX is designed to provide a platform for motorsport enthusiasts that is both accessible and affordable, and to help develop the sport of watercraft racing from the ground up.

The competition kicks off this summer and full details of the opening event can be found at the new AquaX website, now online at www.p1aquax.com.
