I’ve been in a boat going 130mph, but nothing compares to the thrill ad skill of racing the P1 Panther at 70mph, deck to deck with 10 other race boats. This is what boat racing is all about.
Peters and May Race Team
P1 SuperStock USA
At the heart of the championship is the new P1 Panther 28R race boat, designed, built and tested in the USA, the boat has been engineered by the best race engineers in the industry, and tested in the harshest conditions possible.
The Mercury Racing 300R outboard is the exclusive power unit for the 2020 P1 SuperStock Championship. The 300R a naturally aspirated 4.6L V-8 4-Stroke motor with dual overhead cams on aluminium 4 valve cylinder heads. It incorporates short intake manifold runners for maximised power throughout the rated speed range, an integrated oil cooler keeps oil temps down throughout the racing exclusive 5,800 - 6,400 rpm operating range. This together with a DTS switchable foot / hand throttle and worldwide emissions calibration certification makes it the perfect choice for the P1 panther 28R. All the extra power and torque is dealt with via a Mercury Racing surface piercing Sport master gear case which is designed to endure the harshest offshore environment. Handcrafted-precision matched Mercury Racing propellers will ensure that each boat realises its maximum performance.
Racing on water is completely different to racing on tarmac. The course is constantly changing beneath you, which makes for spectacularly close and unpredictable racing – the hallmarks of the P1 SuperStock Championship and the foundations of great motorsport.
Due to the tight racecourses, intelligent boat design and commercial acumen of the P1 team, the race courses can be positioned close to shore, providing unparalleled spectator viewing and increased benefit for the racing teams, host cities and sponsors.
The races, which are either held over one or two days, include a significant prize purse and are all APBA sanctioned events.
There is no other racing series with such integrity and parity at its heart. If you would like to get to get more information please call the P1 USA Office on:
