Race the Gulf P1 and AquaX series races into Father's Day weekend
Feeling a need for speed? This weekend is the Race the Gulf P1 race series featuring AquaX jet skis and SuperStock race boats. The race goes along Pass-a-Grille beach, with some of the best spectating at the Don Cesar Hotel. The racing boats will be going faster than years past: The addition of a carbon canopy cover cuts down on wind resistance and means a larger engine can also be added to the boat. The cover also further protects the drivers. Azam Rangoonwala, the CEO of Powerboat P1 explains how the uniformity of the boats actually makes the races more exciting.
