P1 Aquax adds Malaysia to race

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

AQUAX (pro­nounced as “Aqua Cross”),the fastest grow­ing per­sonal wa­ter­craft (jet­ski) cham­pi­onship in the world will host its first ever event in Kuala Lumpur this Satur­day and Sun­day (Oct 29 & 30) at Metropoli­tan Lake Ke­pong as the open­ing week­end of a three-event se­ries.

AquaX is an out-of-the-box stock rac­ing se­ries de­signed to bridge the gap be­tween recre­ational and com­pet­i­tive rid­ing by cre­at­ing an ac­ces­si­ble, low cost and sim­ple for­mat that ap­peals to all per­sonal wa­ter­craft (PWC) users which will help de­velop the sport of wa­ter­craft rac­ing from the ground up.

The in­au­gu­ral event this week­end will be fol­lowed by race week­ends at D’Is­land Res­i­dence Pu­chong on Nov 26 & 27 and the grand fi­nale on Dec 10 & 11 this year.

James Durbin, CEO of Power­boat P1 Man­age­ment Ltd, the London-based own­ers of the in­ter­na­tional P1 AquaX brand said: “Since the launch of AquaX in the UK in 2011, fol­lowed by its ex­pan­sion in to the USA two years later and Europe ear­lier this year, we have seen out­stand­ing growth in com­peti­tor num­bers and the qual­ity of rac­ing.

“AquaX’s sig­nif­i­cant broad­cast au­di­ences and so­cial me­dia en­gage­ment achieved in South East Asia pro­vides a plat­form for P1’s strate­gic move in to the Malaysian mar­ket and we are con­fi­dent that we will see the same suc­cess here as we have in other re­gions.”

The AquaX race for­mat is di­vided into 2 cat­e­gories, En­duro and Sprint, and is fur­ther split into Pro­fes­sional and Ama­teur class based on the rid­ers’ abil­i­ties and skills.

Both cat­e­gory crafts are clas­si­fied by the horse­power; 300hp, 250hp, and 200hp. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit
