P1 Aquax adds Malaysia to race
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
