BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Some of the fastest boats on the water will race along the Space Coast shoreline during the P1 SuperStock Championship boat races, set for this weekend – Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18.
The P1 fleet will arrive at Bluepoints Marina today and the action will begin with SuperStock practice at midday tomorrow.
Bluepoints Marina in Port Canaveral will host the staging area and wet pits and the race course takes the boats through a series of points between Jetty Park and Cherie Down Park.
The packed, two-day race schedule (see below) on the Space Coast will include P1 AquaX racing in partnership with the International Jet Sport Boating Association.
ACTION WILL INCLUDE JET SKI RACES
P1 USA launched the jet ski series in Daytona Beach in June and more than 20 riders will be competing.
“In the 300 class, Kevin Wassum will be determined to hang on to his lead. It’s going to be fast and furious.”
“The seas along Florida’s east coast are very unpredictable and the riders will be hoping for better conditions than they had to contend with in the opening event,” said Michelle Petro of Pro Rider Watercraft Magazine.
“I will be expecting the highly experienced Eric Lagopoulos to return with a vengeance after enduring a mechanical nightmare in Pahokee. And, in the 300 class, Kevin Wassum will be determined to hang on to his lead. It’s going to be fast and furious.”
