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.

Jason Russo

P1 aqx Pro Racer


Jason grew up working in his father's marine business which naturally set up his lifestyle around water and boats. It was in fact current fellow Professional rider - Eric Lagopoulos - who introduced Jason to racing in about 1997, just a year after purchasing his first PWC. Jason is a seasoned closed course racer and additionally owns his own company in Sarasota FL, Russo Marine & Speed, where several racers bring their watercrafts for repair and race preparation. Mechanical issues in 2015 left Russo off the podium, but a switch to Yamaha and the new backing of GEICO may have changed the fortunes for the tall Floridian.

"My best friend Eric Lagopoulos actually got me into racing in 1997 about a year after I purchased my first PWC. Good thing because we both had been getting into trouble doing illegal drag racing...!"


Sarasota, Florida

"My favorite race location is My hometown Sarasota of course!"


Jason can't see himself slowing down with racing any time soon, and wishes to continue for as long as physically possible. He states that racing and his business also work hand in hand, so we predict great success for Jason!

"I see myself racing for a longtime as long my body will allow for it!"


Thanks to his "dear old mom", Jason is an expert at making the best French toast around!

"When I'm not racing my Yamaha waverunner I'm usually buying parts and modifying my 2006 Pontiac GTO." "I have had a minor learning curve with my Yamaha FX but the reliability and the speed has me hooked. I have to say being part of the Factory Yamaha racing team really helps. Yamaha supports their riders very well!"
