China Motorboat International Race
Racer’s around the World were notified through multi media by Jet China Stone of a race in Sichuan Panzhihua Miyi that they were going to be invited to for an all expense paid trip to this race! The response was huge. The organizer brought in stock seadoo sparks for them to race. They were all wrapped the same and no modifications were done to them. There were 8 crafts at a time that ran the track for the best times to qualify for the heats which the top 4 in the 2 races made the main moto’s. All the racers that made the event were paid an appearance fee just for racing! After the 2 moto’s we had Terry Tee from Malaysia coming in first followed by Vsevolod Chernukha from Russia in 2nd, and Attapon Kunsa from Thailand, 3rd. The promoter was China Sports Related and Mr. Wangxiaobo is the leader of this group. In China the Motorboat federation over see’s all of the racing that is here and they make sure a good event will happen. There was other classes as well like Runabout open and ski open so we had some fast racing as well. The opening ceremony was just incredible as the fireworks blew across the river the racers made a parade lap around the race track with their countries flags. Followed by the National Water ski team that also did tricks on jetskis as well. Flyboard pilots also made for some interest sites for sure. Following the first day there was the opening dinner that was off the hook for some great local cuisine. The Chinese are very gracious hosts and I look forward to the next races here!
