P1, the world’s leading marine motorsport promoter, has unveiled plans to take its UK powerboat racing series to four countries this summer, with two new venues joining the line-up. Denmark, Scotland, Wales and England will each host a P1 Grand Prix of the Sea event.
The first stop in June for the P1 SuperStock teams will be the city of Aalborg in northern Denmark, and later in the month the fleet of P1 Panther race boats will return to Scotland to entertain crowds on the River Clyde. Pembrokeshire will get its first taste of P1 action in July when Milford Haven welcomes the race series, and the season finale in September will be the P1 Yorkshire Grand Prix of the Sea in Scarborough.
“A distinctive, high quality blend of existing and new venues” is how P1 chief operating officer Robert Wicks describes the 2017 calendar. “First class facilities and great viewing for spectators are key factors is selecting our race locations” he adds. “The opportunity to expand the series to take in a round in mainland Europe is a very positive step forward for the series. As is the case at our other host venues, P1 works to create events that attract visitors, boost the local economy and generate significant, positive publicity to raise the profile of the location,” explains Wicks.
P1 SuperStock heads back to Wales for the fourth successive year in July, with the action moving from Cardiff to the Port of Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, the country’s busiest trade gateway and the UK’s biggest energy port. The Milford Waterfront, with its cafes, bars and restaurants which overlook the course, will be a perfect focal point for all the pre- and post-race activities.
