But, after a 26-year wait there was always going to be light at the end of the tunnel as some bright sunshine hit Miami and we even managed to get one race completed!
We were extremely excited to announce that we had two new crews joining us for the 2018 AquaX USA season, Gallagher and Rapid Builder. They were ready to hit the ground running, but unfortunately for Rapid Builder, that wasn't the case. During the practice lap, they steered into the first corner and the boat rolled over, luckily Driver Mike Salber and Navigator Zane Salber suffered no injuries. Gallagher had a great first run under inconsistent condition but came just one point short of a podium finish.
After the practice lap incident, the race began and Frank and Al's Pizza continued their fantastic form from 2017, and most certainly took it into this season. Driver Frank Silva cruised his way into the lead, with his right hand man Chris Mejias navigating their way to yet another win to add to their collection.
Hungry for the first win of the season, Geico came up just short despite having a controlled and steady run, but they just couldn't get passed their bitter rivals in Miami. Whilst Florida-born George Ivey in the Visit Jacksonville boat wrapped up the final podium spot with a comfortable performance with teammate Brian Lynch.
And with that, came the end of the inaugural P1 Miami Grand Prix for some great racing in the AquaX and SuperStock Series, fans came in their hundreds, entertainment with the BMX Freestylers, copious amounts of unbelievable food and fun activities for all the family, we can certainly say after 26 years without the Miami Marine Stadium, it has successful.
