HydroDrag Nationals are already behind us for this year and yet, record-setting numbers are still being pushed by none other than Uva Perez. Back in August, he already set a new official world record of 123.2 MPH at the U.S. HydroDrag Nationals. Now, there is a new YouTube video showing Uva shattering that record at 127 MPH.
While the result may still be unofficial, the GPS modules utilized on board his PWC clearly show numbers never seen previously. With cameras rolling, watercraft prepped, and water conditions perfect, Uva climbed aboard the same turbocharged Yamaha FZR WaveRunner he used during Nationals and strolled down the quiet canal in preparation to make his run.
As he comes back down and hammers the throttle, we hear the turbo instantly spool up and the thing accelerates like a rocket. Coming back around to the dock, the expression on Perez’s face looks very promising and as the camera focuses in on the GPS, we can see the results.
The MVP Productions video indicates that Uva wanted to share to the world this exclusive new 127 MPH speed in under 3 seconds. We imagine that Uva knew his FZR had much more to give even after HydroDrag Nationals, that he just couldn’t wait until next year to push the boundaries higher and higher.
