About P1 AquaX: 

Part of the P1 family of marine motorsport brands, P1 AquaX, was launched in the UK in 2011 and featured the best riders and the fastest off-the-shelf watercraft with speeds in excess of 75mph.

The five-venue 2022 USA national championship has attracted riders from ten countries, and the season will climax with the P1 AquaX World Championship in The Bahamas in November.
