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.

Alexandre Barret bulldozing and blasting his way to victory in La Seyne-Sur-Mer last weekend

The P1 AquaX Eurotour kicked off in La Seyne-Sur-Mer on the Mediterranean sea last weekend, showcasing some serious talent in all classes.

Mediterranean sunshine greeted the P1 AquaX riders in south eastern France at the weekend when La Seyne-sur-Mer hosted the opening round of this year's Experience Kissimmee Eurotour.

A star was born in the first race of the AquaX Pro Enduro when Alexandre Barret took victory in his first-ever AquaX race, lapping the field in the process in a dominant display. Barret then went on to win both the second and third races to complete a hat-trick of wins on the Kawasaki UL 310.

Barret sits top of the standings with a maximum 75 points, while Jordi Tomás Jimenez, riding the new Sea-Doo RXT, and Thomas Favolini rounded out the top three, with 55 and 51 points respectively.

Reigning champion Joe Harvey, battling back from a serious ankle injury sustained in 2017's season-closer, sits seventh in the standings after a best placed finish of sixth. The Experience Kissimmee-sponsored rider said: "I was really pleased with today and can feel the improvement from the Torquay race last month. It's not easy but I am getting somewhere."

Carl Lofthouse (Lofty) smashed all three races in the 200AM class!

In the AquaX 300 AM, Brit Carl Lofthouse, sporting his #555 on his Kawasaki ULTRA, mirrored Barret's achievement, taking three wins out of three to lead the championship. Yamaha SVHO racer, Belgian Claude Vangansbeck finished directly behind Lofthouse in all three races to keep things tight at the top. The AquaX 200 AM saw Mickael Le Gall, Yamaha VXR, beat out reigning champion Luciano Toni on the same craft.

In the Kawasaki 15F AM, Yannick Berthelot tops the standings after a second-place finish preceded two race victories. Just ten points behind Berthelot is Fred Delmas, who took victory in the first race before falling back to fourth and second in races two and three, respectively. Third place is Kevin Connan, three third positions sees him third overall on 51 points, 19 behind top spot, with the rest of an exciting season still to come.

The Experience Kissimmee EuroTour's next stop will be in Agon-Coutainville, France on 9-10 June 2018, with P1 AquaX riders arriving in the Normandy region ready for fast and furious racing action.
