P1 and OPA in Offshore Racing Partnership
Powerboat P1 is working with US powerboat racing promoter the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) to create the APBA/UIM Offshore World Championship Race Series in 2019.
A key aim of the partnership will be to strengthen the future of offshore racing in the United States by providing an expanded, cohesive world-class race series consisting of six race sites with three venues in the northern states and three venues in the southern states.
Powerboat P1 chief executive Azam Rangoonwala commented: ‘In our initial discussions with the OPA, we have identified a number of areas where we believe a partnership could deliver significant results in terms of the profile of the sport as well as commercially. Partnerships are at the heart of our business and our aim is always to create events that excite and entertain, ensuring enjoyment for spectators and TV audiences together with sponsor value and real economic impact for the host venues.’
