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.

Throwback Thursday: When F1 took on AquaX

On a cold, damp day in London, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, David Coulthard and Martin Brundle came to challenge AquaX at their own game!

With a stand-up course laid out in London Docklands, the venue for racing years later on the 2014 UK Tour, McLaren’s British drivers were joined by the BBC commentary team to take on multiple World and European champion Jim Goodchild.

With a time of 41 seconds to beat, Hamilton took to the water first in an attempt to conquer Jim at his own sport. However, it was not to be for the now four-time Formula One world champion despite a valiant effort, posting a time of 45.9 seconds.

Coulthard followed, hitting the deck in spectacular fashion, and posted a time of 51 seconds. Brundle stepped up to post the fastest time of the day from the F1 gang, albeit on a Yamaha WaveRunner, only to have his time of 42.7 seconds beaten by Hamilton moments later on the same ski.

Up stepped Button, the last hope for F1, but disaster struck as he collided with a bouy and injured his leg, leaving him unable to complete a lap time.

However, what the film doesn’t show is that there was someone else who beat them all, Jim included - AquaX’s very own Championship Manager Lisa Barsby.

We think a rematch between Lisa, Jim and Lewis should be set up for 2018. Who is with us?
