Sail-World.com : Powerboat P1 teams up with H1 Unlimited

Powerboat P1 teams up with H1 Unlimited

'Powerboat P1'    Powerboat P1

Powerboat P1 USA is all set to take to the water with the aid of the H1 Unlimited Air National Guard hydroplane series. This comes after a year of building and planning for the introduction of Powerboat P1 racing in North America.

P1 USA and H1 Unlimited will race together at four venues in the 2011 schedule, including the season opener in Madison, Ind., July 1-3, the Gold Cup in Detroit, Mich., Houston, Texas, September 2-4 and Bayfair in San Diego, Calif., September 16-18.

'This is an important step for P1 USA,' said Martin Sanborn, P1 USA Managing Director. 'The event schedule for our initial season had to be spectacular, and we can’t think of a better way to make a splash than to be involved with the pageantry and professionalism of the H1 Unlimited series. With their title sponsor for 2011, the Air National Guard, the events with the H1 series will be incredible.'

Added H1 Unlimited Chairman Sam Cole, 'The inclusion of the P1 USA and the SuperStock series into the H1 event platform will allow us to bring another professional series to the water at some of longest-standing event venues in the sport. They are capable of running on shorter courses, and can continue to run in the roughest conditions, insuring continuous water activity.'

The two series leaders initially met last year when P1 USA participated in the Detroit Gold Cup event, hosted by the Detroit River Racing Association (DRRA). Cole and Sanborn confirmed the individual event details when they met at the Desert Storm Poker Run in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., in late April.

The P1 USA format will feature the SuperStock series, which is aimed at levelling the playing field in powerboat racing, and bringing back dynamic competition that has been missing for more than a decade. SuperStock is a 'single-design' series where every boat will be identical. The P1 SuperSport tag line: One Series, One Boat, One Engine, and One Champion, outlines the series philosophy. The odds are even, and the pilot is what makes the difference.

The SuperStock series runs on closed courses and also has a unique Match Racing format that will keep the fans and the teams engaged with close and intense competition. The courses will complement the H1 courses, at two to three miles, keeping the action close to the spectators.

With the addition of the H1 Unlimited events, the P1 USA schedule is complete.

Madison, IN July 1-3
Detroit, MI July 8-10
Morehead City, NC Aug 19-21
Houston, TX Sept 2-4
San Diego, CA Sept 16-18
