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.

Class Champions

To have a chance of becoming the AquaX Champion for 2018 competitors must accumulate points over a series of rounds in the AquaX Championships. Depending on the classification of the event competitors will receive a slice of the prize fund for winning on the day or at the end of the series. Trophies will be presented at the end of each event.

The AquaX Team Trophy

All competitors entering in an AquaX series may also enter as a team by noting down their team name on their entry form. Teams may have as many riders as they wish, but only the top 3 scores per round will be calculated for the overall team Championship. Once the team is formed - i.e. a team name registered and the rider notes the team name on his/her entry form their points will be allocated to that team for the season. Please note; name cannot be retracted or points allocated to other teams once the season has started. The teams can be made up of any rider in any class. The team with the highest score will be awarded the Team Trophy at the end of the series.

WORLD RANKING SYSTEM

The AquaX World Rankings, launched in 2014 to identify the most consistent and talented AquaX riders in the world, continues to add another element to competition as racers battle it out for that coveted number one vest each year.

With over 250 riders now having made an appearance in the AquaX World Rankings, it has certainly become one of the series biggest talking points with the top 50 revealed every three months via the AquaX website and social media platforms.

The rankings are calculated using two years’ worth of results, with results from the last 12 months taking more precedence than those recorded between 12 and 24 months, to ensure those in form and still racing with the series are rightly the focus of the rankings.

There are several factors that impact on your ranking points. These are as follows:

 Race position – Where the racer finishes.

 Number of racers – The number of riders on the start line in any given race.

 The water conditions – Surf, choppy or flat.

 The level of race class - Pro, Pro/AM or AM.

 The level of competition – The number of top 30 world ranked riders in the race.

In Amateur racing the world ranking points are taken from a rider’s overall finishing position within all classes that raced. For example, if a rider finished 10th in the 300 class but two 200 class riders finished ahead of them they would record world ranking points for 12th place. The world rankings are constantly changing with points from races over two years old dropping away as the season rolls on, ensuring an ever-changing landscape that allows new riders to make their mark after just a year or two years of racing on the AquaX Tour.
