Watch the P1 Powerboat Grand Prix of the Sea from Memorial Park
Hosted by P1 SuperStock USA
“P1 SuperStock is back in Jacksonville on 6th and 7th of June 2015, for the first round of P1 SuperStock USA Championship. Racers will desperate to get their 2015 campaign to a flying start and pick up crucial points.
Last year, around 5,000 spectators gathered at Memorial Park to watch the P1 Panther hit top speed in an event broadcasted to a worldwide audience of 100+ countries. In a tight affair, the boys from Space Coast edged out Team Pro Boat and Southeastern Lighting Solutions to claim victory.
If that isn’t enough, AquaX is also back! The most memorable moment last time round was the battle between 300 Class Champ Eric Francis and his team Kawasaki teammate, Anya Colley. Expect more of the same when the riders attempt to make their mark in 2015.
Jacksonville is a leading venue for racing as it has all the right elements: a global reputation as a sporting city, a strong local community and the beautiful natural resource of the St. Johns River. The abundant waterways, parks and ecological preserves in Jax make for a perfect spot to watch the race. Jacksonville proudly boats the largest urban park system in the nation with more than 85,000 acres of green spaces as well as 22 miles of white-sandy and unspoiled beaches.
All the natural beauty combined with year-round mild temperatures means spectators are in for a treat when P1 comes to this modern and vibrant city -the largest by landmass in the nation- filled with authentic dining options, thrilling attractions, world-class museums, beautiful hotels, shopping hot-spots, exciting events, an animated nightlife, a hip downtown, and unique districts. ”
