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.

Kirk Britto: “I’ll treat it like a big stand-up!”

Kirk Britto makes the transition from stand-up rider to compete in the 2016 P1 AquaX Pro Enduro Series.

If you concentrate on one thing, you do better than trying to do well at two things.

Kirk Britto enters this upcoming P1 AquaX season with a real focus on performing in the Pro Enduro Series, putting his stand-up ski to the side for the time being. That doesn’t mean he won’t call upon all his skills riding stand-ups to when he starts rumbling with the big guns in the runabouts.

“I feel I got a big edge over the competition. I’m used to riding rail-to-rail with the competition. I’m pumped to do try something different and bang hulls with the big boats. With the runabouts it doesn’t beat your body as much as the stand-ups do.” Said Kirk.

“I’m racing the Yamaha FZR this year, which will suit me. I’ll treat it like a big stand-up.”

“I have a lot of experience and Yamaha’s Dean’s Team is helping me out. It’s going to be pretty exciting and a lot of people will be surprised.”

The competition this year is stacked. The margins in the pros are tight and could all come down to getting a good start, riding smart and a killer game plan.

“There’s ten that can win this thing. It’s whoever gets the best start and does their homework.

“I need to put some distance between myself and the other riders at the start - then cruise control. It’s also really important not to do anything stupid.
“I want to be in that top 5 mix all the time - get on the podium and win some of these.”
