ST. PETERSBURG, FL (APRIL 2021) International marine motorsport promoter Powerboat P1 announces plans to host the St. Pete Powerboat Grand Prix in downtown St. Petersburg, FL on Labor Day weekend Sept. 4-5. Personal watercraft and Powerboat race teams from across the United States will compete across multiple classes of racing during the race weekend.

“We began discussions for a national race event featuring a double bill of P1 powerboat racing and AquaX jet ski action in 2015, with plans to stage the two-day event near the iconic St. Pete pier,” said P1 CEO Azam Rangoonwala. “AquaX includes both professional and amateur classes of racing, which attracts riders from across the country. September’s event is part of the eight-venue APBA national race series which runs from May to October.”

Visit St. Pete/Clearwater is the presenting sponsor of the event. A custom designed “Visit St. Pete/Clearwater” powerboat will compete in the APBA Offshore Championship races with leading personal watercraft rider Tory Snyder racing on a VSPC painted jet ski.

While the race is best viewed live along the course near downtown St. Petersburg and the pier, the high-speed racing action will be broadcast nationally on Bally Sports Regional Networks. Fans outside of the U.S. will be able to enjoy the racing via live streaming on the P1 AquaX Facebook page.

Ticket information, VIP packages, race course maps, and an event schedule will appear on the P1 website in the coming weeks:
