Last month celebrated some major milestones – all happening at one single event, the Aqua Moto Grand Prix. Not only did it welcome the return of the one and only Chris “Flyin’ Fish” Fischetti to the world of jet ski racing, but also as a promoter, and the fateful return of old school, vintage-style throwback standup racing to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
The Watercraft Journal was on hand and blew the lid right off of this inaugural event in fine fashion with next-day event coverage and a massive photo gallery. But what we didn’t know what lengths Fish was willing to take to reinvigorate the world of personal watercraft racing. “We’re all on the same plane, but there’s no one in the cockpit,” Fischetti told The Watercraft Journal last week. “The sport needs somebody at the controls. We’ve been waiting forever for somebody to step up. I just finally figured, ‘Why not me?'”
With the immediate success and notoriety that the Aqua Moto Grand Prix gained in its first go, Fish wasted very little time getting word out of a worldwide sand-and-surf event, the 2014 Global Aqua Moto Grand Prix. Subtitled as “Where the Lake Meets the Desert,” the Global Grand Prix will not only welcome all existing jet ski racing classes in an inclusive and competitive fashion, but will ensure the utmost in professionalism and safety thanks to K38 and Jokerswild event management.
In addition to top class PWC racing, the Global Aqua Moto Grand Prix will also include Side x Side, desert and off-road for those wanting to compete both on the water and sand on the nearby Rotary Park course. The Global Grand Prix will also be broadcast by PlanetX TV, streamed live online and receive coverage from both us at The Watercraft Journal and Pro Rider Magazine. All of us are excited to help usher in this new format of American PWC racing and expect big things from Fish and the Aqua Moto series.
Below is the sponsorship letter that was issued earlier today and lays out the Global Aqua Moto Grand Prix event coming this September 26-28th, 2014. We’ll see you there!
