Video: Eric Francis Grabs Coveted 2014 AquaX World Championship
With a dramatic increase in participation in 2014 from its inaugural year in 2013, the P1 AquaX American series celebrated its success and participating racers with a gala awards ceremony evening at the Daytona Speedway. Among the fanfare and festivities, top flight awards were issued to the Top 3 podium finishers of each class – 300, 250 and 200, Ski and Rookie – as well as popular awards for Rider’s Choice and Race Team.
It would be Monster Kawasaki racer Eric Francis who walked away victorious this evening, not only nabbing the coveted 2014 AquaX World Championship in the 300 Class, but also winning the best Race Team award with teammates Jeff Thornton, Anya Colley and Enrique Chia. The Watercraft Journal caught up with Francis who beamed, “My first year of [racing the whole] AquaX series was great. I formed a team with three other riders and everything worked out very good for a rookie season as a team. The teamwork and all the skis went extremely well, but I would like to plan a little better for each event, as far as ski set up and conditions.”

Permitting and fees keep most racing out of California. It's just waaay too expensive for promoters to hold an event when only 50 racers show up.
