    KaruJet update stage 1
    Apr201410

    The 2014 KARUJET World Championship jet ski race is in its 17th  year and has kept all its promise for the first race with a lot of suspense and cold sweats for some racers.

    Café Edouard – Karujet Destination Guadeloupe Outsiders is a confirmed favorite venue with racers.

    In today’s race, the fastest was the Guadeloupean Lucas Granger # 33 who kept his boat pinned throughout the stage. Granger was followed respectively by the Martinique racer Hugo Fidelin # 64, Chris MacClugage # 111,  French racers François Medori # 4, and Teddy Pons # 14.

     But nothing is a given in the endurance race arena, as anything can happen during the course of this event. Racers that have already met with issues are race favorites including French racer Jean Baptiste Botti # 85 and # 30 Alexander Barret who has been the first to bear the brunt of misfortune.

     The drivers are already back in the pits and preparing their skis for the next stage: Viard – Saint -François – Gosier – which is a 140 kilometer course. General spirits are high and all the racers are confident that they can take on the next stage successfully.  Go USA!
