AquaX is a brand name, which incorporates any type of PWC competition organised by P1. The AquaX platform includes two disciplines under the heading of Enduro and Sprint. Each discipline is then divided into Pro, Pro/Am or Amateur depending on the quality of field and the size of the entry. Check with your Series Administrator to find what disciplines and classes are offered in your area.
UK and International
Sit down craft ( 2- 4 seaters) come under the ENDURO rules. Craft must remain stock, except for minor handling modifications. The craft are then classified by the horsepower i.e - 300hp – 250hp – 200hp.
(Only offered in the USA in 2016.)
This year P1 will launch the first Pro Series, for both Enduro and Sprint racers to deliver a higher level of competition and exposure for the top ranking riders and race series sponsors. The Pro series is open to all makes and models of watercraft, though the rules will benefit and encourage the use of higher rated HP craft. Initially entry will be limited and only current racers, with sufficient racing experience will qualify to compete creating strong competition by those vying for a position on the start line. In time qualifying and a relegation system will be imposed.
The rules will allow for a higher level of modification, upping the speeds of the race craft to in excess of 70mph. The race tracks will be revised to reflect the improved ability of the competitor and provide stunning viewing for the spectator and the TV production. The Pro Enduro class will run to 2016 IJSBA rules.
Single seater (sport craft) and the original stand Up craft come under the heading of Sprint. The race courses are smaller and are generally laid in the surf line, creating a challenge even for the canniest rider. The 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 Pro Sprint series (USA only) is open to all makes and models of Sprint craft, The rules allow for a higher level of modification, upping the speeds of the race craft to in excess of 65mph. The race tracks will be revised to reflect the improved ability of the competitor and provide stunning viewing for the spectator and the TV production. The Pro Sprint class will run to 2016 IJSBA GP rules.
