  • The biggest & baddest jetski race series on the planet!

    P1 AquaX is unlike any watercraft competition that’s gone before and

    test their personal watercraft skills. Powerboat P1 is the company behind the AquaX series where our interest in personal watercraft

    competition is based on building a sport from the ground up.

    Put simply, AquaX is an exciting coastal challenge that offers a completely new experience for watercraft enthusiasts. All of the events’ sea courses are simple and wide open giving competitors a chance to open up their throttles and enjoy the full performance of their craft in a safe and controlled environment. Because of the

    ever-changing coastal conditions, the rider’s skill always prevails over

    The AquaX racing is comprised of several heats over an event weekend with racers split into three categories – 200hp – 250hp & 300hp – to

    accommodate the huge diversity in engine displacements. All craft may

    manufacturer. The runners and riders enjoy great camaraderie and this year’s AquaX has enjoyed grids of up to 25 competitors.

    The world’s most competitive one-design powerboat

    championship! The P1 SuperStock Championship is based on racing identical production boats – the stunning P1 Panther – across a number of Grand Prix of the Sea events in the US. In developing the sport of powerboating at a grass roots level, Powerboat P1 is uniquely establishing P1 SuperStock as a national series of

    powerboating in a number of different countries.

    The SuperStock race courses are close to shore, tight and fast, making it a great spectacle for the public and equally

    demanding on the drivers and navigators. Each event weekend sees the teams tackle up to four races lasting around 20 minutes each.

    Each event is heavily promoted through the local Council and Tourist board resulting in crowds lining the shore to

    watch the spectacular racing. International television coverage takes the action to more than 650 million homes around the world.

    P1 Jetcross is the only series in the world dedicated to stand-up jetski racing, with the two classes of racing and

    freestyle providing top-class sporting entertainment.

    Jetskis have capacities of between 800cc and 1300cc and power ratings from 170hp to 200hp or more.

    The jetskis race a closed circuit on a craft that has a rapid acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds!

    to the power of the watercraft and skill level of the rider.

    The Jetski Freestyle Class is the opportunity for Pro and Amateur riders to perform a 2 minute routine that is judged

    by a panel of jetski experts.

    Europe’s premier standup jetski race series!
