Powerboat P1's teams and riders will be arriving in the home of British Powerboat Racing, Torquay, for the P1 SuperStock Grand Prix of the Sea event for the weekend 9 – 10 August. This will be the fourth round of the British Offshore P1 SuperStock Championship and P1 AquaX Championship. It's our second visit to Torquay and we have a packed schedule of races and entertainment over the weekend.
P1 SuperStock is a one make powerboat racing series in the UK based on using identical boats, a 28 ft P1 Panther with a 250hp Evinrude outboard engine. The courses are fast, challenging, and come to shore which along with equal powered craft ensures close and exciting racing all down to driver ability.
Alongside the P1 SuperStock racing, the P1 AquaX championships will also take place over the weekend, using a shorter tighter challenging course. AquaX is a personal watercraft race series for stock skies. Ideal for novices and professionals alike there are classes for different horsepower levels and anyone can enter. More than 30 skiers will be heading to Heldon Pier, Torquay to battle for the closely fought after AquaX cup - if you are a local jet ski rider you could be joining them! Log on to : www.p1aquax.com to find out more.
Over the Torquay Grand Prix of the Sea event alongside all the racing action there will be live race commentary from the outer Harbour Wall and a free Tea pavilion courtesy of Typhoo alongside other family attractions in the Princess Gardens. Also be sure to check out the freestyle jet ski displays ahead of the races, plus our usual champagne popping podium at the end of the weekend from the P1 Race centre in Haldon Pier, Torquay Harbour.
