After a memorable season on the waves with race events in the UK, France and Belgium, the Yamaha EX/EXR Cup came to a close in Port Balis, Spain last weekend.
The Yamaha EX/EXR Cup is an initiative between Yamaha Europe and P1 AquaX aimed at attracting Yamaha EX and EXR owners to try their hand at competitive racing with the help and support of an on-site Yamaha technical team.
Six-time Yamaha EX/EXR Cup winner this season, Britain’s Elliot Cable was looking to end his season with another victory in Port Balis, but it was not to be. The honours went to local racer Carlos Vela who lifted the Cup and took first place in the Sprint SE category for the weekend.
Vela dominated all four races in the huge two-meter swells that lapped the Costa del Maresme, Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, just north of Barcelona. Cable came home in second place after beating off a strong performance from Paul Thomas from France. Pedro Perez Vizcaino finished in fourth with Cable’s teammate, Harry Robinson in fifth. “I really enjoyed the weekend, it was so much fun racing in those conditions with strong competition” enthused Vela. “The EXR is a great machine and really enjoyable to ride in big sea conditions. I’m really pleased to have won both the Yamaha Cup and the Sprint SE.”
Despite not taking the final Cup of the season, Elliot Cable claimed the overall title in the Sprint SE category beating the rest of the EXR riders and the Sea-Doo sparks. “I’ve loved every minute of racing the EXR,” commented Cable. “I’ve always enjoyed the rough water racing but it was tough out there today. Carlos rode a good race, but I took the 2019 AquaX Sprint SE title for Yamaha on my EXR.”
Port Balis concludes the Yamaha EX/EXR Cup series for 2019. “It’s been a superb season and the Yamaha Cup has brought in new faces to AquaX racing,” said Lisa Barsby, Global Head of AquaX. “With any new initiative it takes time to build awareness and this weekend’s race in Port Balis shows there is definitely an interest in racing especially in the Sprint SE class. The EXR took the win here today and importantly the overall title, showing it’s a very competitive machine.”
