Powerboat Nationals announced today that it will be adding a new series to its racing line up that features a high performance, budget-friendly personal watercraft.
Powerboat Nationals will be racing the Sea-Doo Spark in its own exclusive series at select Hydro-Cross events in 2019.
The Spark is an entry-level personal watercraft (PWC) that can be purchased at Sea Doo dealers across America. The Sparks racing in this new series will be the same watercraft you see on the showroom floor.
Final Spark Series technical specifications are under review and will be announced later.
Powerboat Nationals’ Managing Director Dan Bunting commented:
We wanted to create and promote a series that was affordable, competitive, and, most importantly, fun.
The Spark is a fast, exciting boat that will get people out of their seats and into our sport without breaking their budget.
We also want to rebuild the ‘What wins on Sunday sells on Monday’ aspect of racing that has been lost in other types of motorsports.
We fully intend to work with Sea-Doo/BRP and local dealers to grow Spark sales, the Spark series, and our Hydro-Cross racing in general.
Highlights of the Hydro-Cross Spark series will be included in Powerboat Nationals’ television coverage that will be seen nationally and regionally on nine television networks including MAVTV.
