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.

P1 AquaX Day 1 recap - La Seyne-Sur-Mer

The opening day of the 2018 P1 AquaX Eurotour in La Seyne-Sur-Mer on the Mediterranean Sea, saw the French dominate the top three positions in the Pro Enduro class.

First to stand out was Alexandre Barret, a first-timer on the AquaX Eurotour, but a master of the major offshore events. Barret cruised to easy victory over fellow Frenchman, and favourite, Thomas Favolini by lapping the entire field on what some consider the outdated Kawasaki Ultra 310. The Yamaha GP 1800 of Favolini was no match for the flying Frenchman, whose skill would challenge the top AquaX riders in the world and potentially deliver him the Eurotour title. Olivier Audemar finished third, whilst the disappointed Spaniard Jordi Tomas Jimenez brought home the new Sea-Doo RXT in fourth, "I wanted a better result, I am hoping to do better in today's racing".

Reigning champion Joe Harvey from Great Britain finished a respectable 6th despite being side-lined for the last 6 months with a serious ankle injury. The Experience Kissimmee sponsored rider had this to say, "I was really pleased with today, I can feel the improvement from Torquay. It's not easy but I am getting somewhere".

In the Amateur divisions, Britain's Carl Lofthouse leads the 300hp class going into the second day of racing, whilst reigning champion Frenchman Toni Luciano had to settle for second place behind Mickael Le Gall in the Amateur 200hp class.

Today's racing kicks-off at 12:30pm in Race 2, and the final AquaX race of the day at 15:45pm.
