Yamaha powers up to support P1 AquaX race series - Ron Levy
Orlando, 19 February: As the countdown begins to the start of the new P1 AquaX USA race season in April, a second major watercraft manufacturer has announced that it will be joining the series. Yamaha has embraced the vision of AquaX and will be helping to take the fast-growing championship to the next level as a supporting sponsor.

“AquaX and Yamaha are alike in recognizing the importance of growing participation in personal watercraft racing, which is why we are pleased to support AquaX in its efforts to provide additional organised platforms for doing this” explained Yamaha race director and former freestyle world champion Scott Watkins. P1 AquaX is promoted more to the amateur racer and recreational riders, and was successfully launched in the USA last year after establishing itself in the UK over the last three years.

Speaking at the head office of P1 AquaX USA in Orlando, Michelle Petro said: “Our championship is designed to provide an accessible and affordable platform for motorsport enthusiasts and to help develop the sport of watercraft racing from the ground up. The emphasis is on fun, safety and healthy competition, and this support from Yamaha clearly shows that leading manufacturers recognize the value of our concept and this

Yamaha rider Ron Levy was crowned 250 AquaX champion in the USA last year, and Yamaha will this summer be contesting the 300 class with its new FX Super Vortex High Output (SVHO) craft. Having completely overhauled the pump setup and installed supercharged power matched with upgraded performance components, Yamaha will be in search of more honors this season. One rider eager to make his mark is Troy Snyder, who raced in the final round of the P1 AquaX USA Championship last year. “I’m very happy to be riding for a manufacturer that rolls out the red carpet for its riders and can’t wait to use the power of the new SVHO power plant” enthused Troy.

The 5-venue AquaX season gets underway at Daytona Beach on 26/27 April.
