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.

P1 AquaX - Sprint Class

Sprint is separated into two classes –SPRINT & SPRINT SE.


Sprint racing provides an accessible and affordable route into AquaX racing, It’s also a great place to start if you are new to watercraft racing.
Sprint racecourses are shorter and more technical than Enduro race courses, creating a challenge even for the canniest rider. Depending on the location of the series, Sprint racing is offered at Pro, Amateur and Junior levels where the starting age is 10 years. The Pro class is the only Sprint class to be organised at World Championship level and delivers a higher level of competition and exposure for the top ranking riders and race series sponsors. Riders qualify to compete in the Pro class by honing their skills in the amateur ranks.


All Sprint events will offer Pro and Am Sprint racing for 4-stroke and 2-stroke stand up craft and Sprint SE racing for Yamaha EXR and Sea-Doo Spark riders, together with regional level racing classes offered by the local organiser.

The Pro Sprint category is open to stand up watercraft designed for one person and must remain strictly stock as supplied by OEM except where rules allow. The Pro class will utilise the current IJSBA SKI GP technical rules but follow P1 AquaX general and safety rules. Please ensure you read both rulebooks.

The AM Sprint category is open to stand up watercraft designed for one person and must remain strictly stock as supplied by OEM except where rules allow. Please ensure you read the P1 AquaX rulebook.
