With a bit of spit an polish it is amazing what can happen! Watercraft racers almost look normal and we have the proof.
The P1 Awards night was a great evening with champagne flowing and hot laps around the Daytona International speedway for all who dared to try it!
Along with the awards, P1 announced some major exciting advancement which can only help propel the sport forward no matter what discipline you race.

Winner of the Rider’s Choice award went to Jeff Thornton although it was very close. He barely managed to edge out Anya Colley for that one. A well deserved award for Jeff Congrats!
The winning team for 2014 was Team Kawasaki. Eric Francis, Jeff Thornton, Anya Colley and Enrique Chia made up this team and they won it by being consistent at every race. Points are awarded to the top 3 finishers each round for each team. Next season there will be some serious competition as Team Kaotic have their eye on that trophy and Team CRT, Team Gameover, SeaDoo Xteam and Yamaha will be on board with a designated teams as well.
AquaX had carefully picked out intro songs for each racer as they were called up to the stage to collect their awards. Rob Greenwald’s MC Hammer “Can’t touch this” along with Eric Lagopoulos’ LMFAO “I am sexy and I know it” were both classics as well as Anya Colley’s Alesha Keys “Girl on fire.” It was the intro footage to the AquaX awards that really summed up the 2014 summer and was well received by all.
