Sunseeker Ibiza prepares for Powerboat and Aquabike World Championships: 5th-7th September

September 2014 Ibiza will be hosting the Ibiza Mediterranean Grand Prix 2014  – Powerboat and Aquabike World Championships

For the next 4 years, Ibiza will annually host the first Class-1 Grand Prix event to be held in Spain. Known as the most exhilarating powerboat championship in the world, the Class-1 GP is famed for its challenging circuits and high octane  racing on water. Held from 5th-7th September, the Ibiza Mediterranean Grand Prix 2014 will showcase the World’s best Class-1 powerboat and UIM-ABP aqua bike teams, as they go head-to-head in their respective classes for championship points.

The event involves a three-day extravaganza where passion for speed, innovative ideas and entertainment join forces with the spectacular surroundings of Ibiza to create a unique sporting experience.

Nothing remains of the original 34-foot, 21hp wooden monohulls of the 1950s that averaged a speed of 20mph. Race boats have evolved beyond all recognition: the modern-day boats are 12 metre, 5 tonne built catamarans powered by two 850hp engines, capable of speeds exceeding 260km/h.
