P1 AquaX

AquaX is the fastest growing personal watercraft championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to today’s personal watercraft users.

This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

It wasn’t the dominant performance we’ve come to expect from Chris MacClugage but three seconds were enough to take the overall win by a solitary point as AquaX visited St Pete Beach for the first time.

Victories for rivals Brian Baldwin, Nicolas Rius and Eric Francis wasn’t enough to stop the reigning champion, who played a tactical game in order to secure the overall weekend victory – his second of the season.

MacClugage was handed the world number one jersey on the eve of the race weekend after ousting Aero Aswar at the top of the world rankings.

It was a weekend of fine margins as both Francis and Baldwin tied for second, just one point back from MacClugage, with Francis securing second spot by virtue of a win in race three.

Rius headed into the final day leading the weekend after his victory in race two but he was forced to retire from the final race.

The sweltering heat on Sunday saw many riders suffer from dehydration in a race that emphasised the need for endurance and fitness.

Mike Klippenstein put in an excellent performance to claim fifth after recently suffering from pneumonia, whilst Anthony Radetic was a creditable sixth stepping back up into pro company after racing in the amateur ranks in Daytona Beach.

The much anticipated arrival of Francois Medori and Vincent Thomas saw ended in disappointment as the former failed to make it to the start line on Sunday, but both put in creditable efforts to finish inside the top ten.

Medori in particular proved he could cut it with the best AquaX has to offer as he sliced through the field on his Kawasaki, despite conditions being flatter than ideal.

The next stop for the AquaX Pro Series is in two weeks time when they reach Sarasota for the Fourth of July weekend festival.
