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 todays 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.

This year’s championship is going to be immensely competitive and we may well experience another nail-biting finish at the end of five months. We’re expecting flat conditions on the lake this weekend so the racing should be fast and furious. This will be the ninth time we’ve staged AquaX racing here and we regard this event as our home town race with it being close to our Orlando headquarters. We are introducing a new Junior class to the national championship for riders aged 14-15 and I’m looking forward to seeing this class grow across the season.
P1 USA Championship Manager
More than fifty personal watercraft riders will be heading to Central Florida later this week for the opening event of the P1 AquaX USA race season (April 30-May1). The SBT P1 AquaX Kissimmee/St. Cloud Grand Prix, featuring Pro and Am Enduro action together with a new Jr Enduro class, will see East Lake Tohopekaliga welcome riders from nine countries to compete in the five-venue P1 AquaX USA National Championship.
Reigning Pro Enduro champion Erminio Iantosca from Naples on Florida’s Gulf Coast was involved in a dramatic season finale in St. Pete over Labor Day weekend last year and will again face a fierce challenge from leading US riders as well as experienced racers from Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. Flying the flag for Canada will be Paul Green and Dave Davidson, with flying Frenchman Thomas Favolini announcing that he will be competing in all rounds of this year’s championship. Vanjae Ramgeet from the Cayman Islands finished fourth in the P1 AquaX World Championship in The Bahamas in November 2019 and he will be seeking to qualify for this year’s event which will again be staged at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island. With thirty riders competing in this class, it’s sure to produce some dramatic action.
Nineteen-year-old Tory Snyder will be a major contender for this year’s national title. He has just returned from winning the Jet Around Cayman endurance race in a record time to pick up a cheque for $15,000. The only international rider in the field, Tory said after the race: “I want to make sure my name is at the top and this is the first step because it’s one of the biggest endurance races of the year.” Snyder won Pro Rookie in last season’s AquaX series and tied for second place overall.
In the Am Enduro 300 class, Domenico Barilla will be looking to again finish in the top three and the reigning AM 200 champion Frankie Mojica from Puerto Rico will be looking to make a mark as he moves up to take on the 300 riders. Mariana Perdomo is travelling from Columbia to race in the new Jr Enduro class where she will have to take on Gavin Russo.
Speaking from St. Cloud, P1 USA Championship Manager Michelle Petro commented: “This year’s championship is going to be immensely competitive and we may well experience another nail-biting finish at the end of five months. We’re expecting flat conditions on the lake this weekend so the racing should be fast and furious. This will be the ninth time we’ve staged AquaX racing here and we regard this event as our home town race with it being close to our Orlando headquarters.

Racing in Kissimmee/St. Cloud will start at 10.00 am on both days, with highlights being broadcast on Bally Sports Regional Networks.
