Across the weekend of 21-22 July the beautiful, natural site, will welcome some of Europe’s greatest jetski racers, at amateur and professional level, who will be battling it out for the win.
Adopting a simple race format, the event is split into two classes – Pro and Amateur. Racing sees riders reach speeds of up to 120km/h as they take on a 15-minute closed course race of 37 race marks, twelve turns and two log jumps.
The European series tour has already tackled courses in La Seyne-sur-Mer, France and Lacs Eau D’Heure, Belgium, but Vichy will throw up the biggest challenge yet as racers face a narrower course layout and concrete banks either side of the track.
The reality of these concrete banks is choppier conditions which will make for a truly thrilling watch and means racers will need to be on the top of their game and adapt their skills to navigate the courses.
Julien Bastien is the Head of P1 AquaX and Jetcross for Europe and commented on the upcoming event: “Vichy is definitely a special venue for the Jetcross series. We are very glad to once again be working with Vichy council, offering the riders one of the best hosting facilities in the world for a PWC event.”
If seeing the action from the series unfold isn’t enough of a thrill, world-famous French freestyler, Thomas Auzou, will also be leading a Freestyle display out on the water where he, and other world-class freestylers will be making waves in more ways than one!
The event in Vichy welcomes all spectators and will have a variety of exciting entertainment and expos on offer, as well as food and drink outlets and a children’s play area.
Two more events will follow Vichy – Le Bouveret, Switzerland (18-19 August) and So’Fun Village, France (15-16 September) so there is still plenty of opportunities for people everywhere to catch the action from these world-class competitors.
