This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

Lisa Barsby is a multiple British, European and World jet ski champion and now the driving force behind the successful P1 AquaX racing series. Lisa has raced all over the world, mostly competing in the Women's ski class, but has also raced against the boys. She is the one most successful British and European jet ski racers and was the first woman to win an open title at the IJSBA World Championships. She was also crowned the UIM's first Pro Women's World Champion in Dubai in 1995. Lisa has been involved in the personal watercraft industry for many years, first for CSL publishing where she worked in sales and marketing before becoming the publisher for Jet Skier & Personal Watercraft magazine. She continues to contribute regularly to various magazines and projects within the sport. In 2000 Lisa joined the Jetsport Racing Association of Great Britain, initially in the media and marketing department before taking over as the Series Organiser. During that period, she increased rider participation and raised the level of competition, which culminated in the UK winning the 2009 IJSBA Nations Trophy. This was the first time a country other than USA had won the coveted prize. In 2010 Lisa left the JSRA to develop a progressive and modern watercraft racing championship for leading marine motorsport promoter, P1. AquaX was launched that year in Southampton, UK with just 11 riders. Since then more than 500 riders have competed in AquaX championships in the UK, Florida, the Great Lakes region of the USA and now in Malaysia.
