P1 returns to St. Cloud’s East Lake Tohopekaliga tomorrow, Saturday, May 20, featuring the AquaX Amateur Enduro Florida Championship and the first race of the 2017 Spectre P1 SuperStock USA Series. The event is free to the public from 10 am til 4 pm, serving up a day of fast, furious and exhilarating action on the water featuring eight P1 Panther race boats powered by Mercury Racing engines and more than forty AquaX (personal watercraft) riders.
St. Cloud sits on the southern shore of the nearly circular lake, providing great viewing for the huge crowds expected to line the award-winning lakefront.
“Our P1 SuperStock powerboat series, sponsored by Spectre Powerboats, continues to gain momentum and recognition and it boasts the most extensive television package in powerboat racing with coverage in more than 150 countries,” says Azam Rangoonwala, Managing Director of P1 USA. “With St. Cloud’s long history of powerboat racing this is a great venue to launch the new season, and the double bill of Spectre P1 SuperStock action and AquaX racing will serve up a feast of top class marine motorsport entertainment for all the family.”
Returning SuperStock race teams include GEICO, SouthEastern Lighting Solutions, Visit Jacksonville, and Frank & Al’s Pizza. Fox Sports will again be covering this year’s race and the broadcast will be aired in June.
We hope to continue growing this partnership for years to come.” St. Cloud’s City Manager, Joe Helfenberger, is also thrilled that the event is returning, and he commented: “We are so excited about the return of P1 SuperStock to St. Cloud. This event is a great highlight for our community”.
