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.
The aqua bike championship (UIM-ABP) is one of the most spectacular international water sport competitions – a seriously daring yet professional show. The event combines speed and fun for the spectators (and participants) maximum entertainment.
Furthermore the competition will also be reinforced by the spectacular aqua bike Freestyle Championships, in which the bikers show off their stunts over water.
