P1 AquaX

AquaX is the fastest growing personal watercraft championship in the world. Its rapid growth is owed to a simple, yet challenging race format that appeals to today’s personal watercraft users.

This year the program will include the unveiling of a professional level race series and expansion of two further championships in the Great Lakes region of the USA and in Southeast Asia.

2017 Season Preview: Mike Klippenstein

With a few weeks to go before the 2017 P1 AquaX USA Pro Series we preview the riders in the hunt for the title, including former world number one Mike Klippenstein.

Klipper as he is known in the racing world is one of the most successful jet ski racers of all time and holds over 20 world titles.

The Canadian won the 2015 P1 AquaX 300 class title and has been ever consistent with 20 top five finishes from a total of 30 starts.

Despite turning 49 in February, Klipper is one of the fittest riders in the field and takes part in Moto X, snowmobiling and surfing in his time away from AquaX.

Klipper turned in another solid season last year as he finished fourth behind the likes of Chris MacClugage, Aero Aswar and Eric Francis, although he was unable to notch up any race wins, something he’ll be hoping to rectify in 2017.

“The hardest thing about AquaX racing for me is that in Canada our water is frozen so I don’t get to race a lot and being off for long periods of time doesn’t help,” says Klipper. “You can go to the gym all you want but you’ve got to ride these things in the rough water.”

One of the most consistent performers on the AquaX circuit, you can bet Klipper will be knocking on that door throughout the six round season.
