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 World Champion Brian Baldwin took his second win of the weekend, at the 2018 HotelPlanner.com Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix in glorious sunshine at Lido Beach on day two.

Baldwin, who finished fourth and first yesterday's two races, led from start-to-finish in a dominant race win on a clear summer's day, beating out Eric Francis and Indonesian rider Aero Aswar in the process.

Crowds had gathered down at Lido Beach to watch with intrigue from the shoreside, and to see if the 2017 reigning World Champion could hold off competition from the likes of current leader of the USA tour and World Ranked Number One, Francis and legend of the sport, Chris MacClugage, who won Saturday’s other race.

But Sunday saw Baldwin put his mark on the championship, his win taking him to within 15 points of Francis at the top of the standings, as competition for the title hots up.

While Baldwin was out front from the start, Francis and MacClugage were keeping him company in second and third places, the top three continuing to reflect the race weekend to date. Francis and MacClugage swapped places on several occasions, before mechanical problems caused “Mac Attack” to fade away, which allowed Aero Aswar to benefit, as he rose into third position.

There was no doubt about the winner of the race, though, as Baldwin came home for his second successive race victory, in an almost perfect weekend for the World Champion. MacClugage hung on for second, whilst Francis edged out Aswar for third.

The next round of the P1 AquaX USA Championship, sees the riders and teams heading to Chicago on Lake Michigan for more exciting action!
