P1 AquaX - The Championship

Make your Mark this summer

AquaX is the fastest growing and most exciting personal watercraft (pwc) championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to today’s personal watercraft users.

The series was launched in the UK by London based sports promoter Powerboat P1 and grew quickly by attracting a mix of first-time and experienced racers to a new style of racing. In 2013, P1 rolled out a second series in the USA and such was the interest that the original format needed reviewing to cope with the abundance of new racers. By the end of 2015, the series had received over 400 registered entries from 11 countries.

2016 was undoubtably a year of extensive growth for AquaX with the unveiling of a Pro level championship in the USA and the launch of two further Pro/Am championships in Malaysia and the Great Lakes region of the USA.This year and with acquisition of leading european sprint series, Jetcross, and the launch of the European AquaX Pro Championships shows P1 is committed to delivering this exciting sport to a worldwide audience for years to come.

P1 AquaX - The Ultimate Challenge

The format is simple: competitors are divided into two categories - ENDURO or SPRINT depending on what type personal watercraft they ride and the style of riding they enjoy. Then, depending on the quality of the field, the category is divided by ability into Pro or Amateur. If the field is not sufficient in size to split the classes then the classes will run under Pro/Am class rules.

The races mainly take place on the coast, but races can be held on lakes or rivers. The tracks are large enough to accommodate the varying levels of ability and each race lasts for 30 minutes + 1 lap in duration.

Sit down craft come under the ENDURO rules. If the series is ranked Am or Pro/Am then craft must remain stock, except for minor handling modifications. The craft are classified by the horsepower i.e - 300hp – 250hp – 200hp. All classes race together, but points are separated out to find the winner of each class.

ENDURO is a test of will and preparation. To win, a competitor needs to be in good physical condition and their equipment needs to be mechanically sound.

SPRINT is all about the Stand Ups, the original Jet Ski, and like the ENDURO series offers different levels of competition. Pro/Am and Am depending on the location. The race courses are smaller and are generally laid in the surf line, creating a challenge even for the canniest rider. The Am and Pro/AM technical rules are limited to handling with some minor engine mods to keep costs down.

Unlike ENDURO, SPRINT races are quick (10mins) in duration, a competitor needs speed and agility to win.

The technical rules can be found in the AquaX rulebook.
