March, 2015 Redondo Beach, CA – Championship PWC racing returns to Lake Havasu in April! The 2nd annual IJSBA sanctioned event will see some of the best PWC racers from the Western United States and Canada show up to begin their points chase for the 2015 Jettribe “Best of the West” Series Championship Tour. This years event will be held in conjunction with the Havasu Boat Show. The action on and off the water is going to be intense with all riders vying for victory in their class.

In addition, supporting sponsor Sea-Doo has posted an impressive contingency program for the racers with the Sea Doo Bounty. Fans will be treated to two days of closed course (short track) racing on a tight multi turn race course. 16 plus classes of PWC’s will be featured including the Pro Ski GP, Pro Runabouts, Vintage 550 & 650 classes and up and coming stars of the sport in the Junior classes as well as the ever popular Freestyle competition.

“Lake Havasu is one of the best locations for PWC racing in the world” according to event promoter Ross Wallach or RPM Racing Enterprises. Wallach added “I am thrilled to be able to bring this event back again to Lake Havasu with it’s concentrated pool of talented racers living within it’s city, the racing should be outstanding!” Great weather and a great location make Lake Havasu a prime spot to hold a high caliber event such as this.

This year’s event will be remembered as the “Gary Hart Memorial” race, named for the legendary owner of Jettrim and supporter of PWC racing. Sadly, Gary succumbed late last year but his memory forever will live on within the sport that he gave so much to.

The Lake Havasu Open of Watercross event is great opportunity for the fans to get up close and personal with all the racers. Like the IJSBA World Finals in October, it is going to be an event not to be missed, so make your plans today to be a part of the all the action at Lake Havasu State Park at Windsor 4 Beach.
