At the heart of the championship is the new P1 Panther race boat, designed in 2010, the boat has been engineered by the best race engineers in the industry, tested and developed in the harshest conditions over 18 months. The P1 Panther is powered by the award winning Evinrude 250HO ETEC engine – powerful, efficient and fast, it is the perfect marriage to the P1 Panther.
Racing on water is completely different to racing on tarmac. The course is constantly changing beneath you, which makes for spectacularly close and unpredictable racing – the hallmarks of the P1 SuperStock Championship and the foundations of great motorsport.
Due to the tight racecourses, intelligent boat design and commercial acumen of the P1 team, the race courses can be positioned close to shore, providing unparalleled spectator viewing and increased benefit for the racing teams, host cities and sponsors.
P1 SuperStock has been racing in the UK since 2010 and the P1 Panther launched globally in the UK series in 2011. The winners of P1 SuperStock UK, with the winners of other national P1 SuperStock series qualify for the right to race in the World Championship, with the inaugural World Championship to be held in 2015.
The 5 event weekends include 10 races in total, which are held over 2 days and are all sanctioned through the RYA.
There is no other racing series with such integrity and parity at its heart.
