Throughout the 2015 racing season, the Yamaha brand really put on a show, taking numerous national and world titles in several different sanctioning bodies. You might could even say the 2015 PWC racing season was all but completely dominated by Yamaha WaveRunners. And the AquaX racing series was no different.
In the premier 300 class, Yamaha racer Mike Klippenstein showed true dedication to the sport, coming all the way from Canada to make all six AquaX rounds in FL. After a very strong season of racing, he finished the season with an astounding 56 point lead over the runner up, Eric Francis.
Though the 250 class was won by a Sea-Doo rider Eric Lagopoulos, Yamaha riders Paloma Noceda and Brian Baldwin were nipping on his heels all season. In fact, Noceda had the points lead going into the last round. She fell off her ski in the last moto of the season, though, and gave Lagopoulos the championship by two points. Never the less, Yamaha is proud of the way their riders and machines performed.
The 200 class was mostly Yamaha VXRs. In fact, all but four of the skis in the 200 class were VXRs. Travis Zielasko took the championship with a whopping 61 point lead over fellow Yamaha rider, Rob Greenwald, who took second place on the season. Also, we must mention, the Rookie Cup winner for the year was Hector Toledo, who was racing Yamaha FZR in the 300 class.
