P1 AquaX

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

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.

2017 AquaX EURO Rulebook

This Rulebook contains rules and technical requirements governing all events that make up the P1 Aquacross UK and European Championships.

The Rulebook is designed to provide the information you will need to prepare your personal watercraft and yourself for competition, plus an overview of rules that apply to the racing program, along with a summary of offenses and penalties pertaining to rule infractions.

The intent of a specific rule will override a competitor’s interpretation of a rule. The intent of a rule will be determined by competent officials. If any rule is unclear to the competitor, the competitor is advised to get written approval prior to any modifications.

The P1 Aquacross Team will answer any requests for rule clarifications or interpretations. Requests must be submitted in writing by the riders and teams to the Series Administrator. Any prior verbal approval from P1 staff or officials without a written statement from the Series Administrator with regard to the interpretation of a rule or procedure will be deemed invalid.

Please note; that while every effort has been made to write these rules in a clear and unambiguous fashion, it is impossible to anticipate every circumstance. It will be the Race Director’s responsibility to make decisions regarding rules enforcement.

Any rule update/addendum to these rules will be posted here on the Aquacross website www.p1aquax.com.
