The event is the fastest-growing marine motorsport series in the world and will be launched by powerboats and jet skis tearing through Victoria Docks next Saturday (March 29).

The event will preview the P1 SuperStock and AquaX Championships which are set to be held around the country during the summer.

Saturday’s action will be based at the Siemens Crystal building, with displays beginning at 10am followed by fast and furious P1 AquaX racing at 11.30am and P1 SuperStock match racing at 2pm.

Members of the public will be able to chat to race teams and drivers during signing sessions, and an exhibition about the sport will also be held in the Siemens Crystal building.

James Durbin, CEO of Powerboat P1 said: “London and the Docklands provide the ideal setting for our season launch.”
