Bushell’s Sea-Doo Centre backed RXP-X* featuring the all new T3 hull design outclassed fields filled with the biggest names in the sport to collect his double championship. The combination of the Sea-Doo T3 hull, Australia tuner/builder Les Cooke’s abilities to bring the new Sea-Doo RXP-X innovations to the racetrack and Bushell’s skill left no question to onlookers which watercraft was the most dominant on the water and what was in store for the future from Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft racers.

“James and Les’ efforts showed the world that BRP’s innovations on the new Sea-Doo RXP-X work better than any other design on the race,” said Yves Leduc, vice president – general manager, North America division. “BRP is extremely proud of James Bushell’s double world championship winning performance on the new Sea-Doo T3 hull.”

Bushell, co-owner of the BRP dealership 158 Performance in Stamford of the UK, claimed both Pro Open and Pro GP World titles aboard his Sea-Doo watercraft featuring the new T3 hull design that stands for tight,-turning, T-hull and offers true lean-in handling and tracks straighter in choppy conditions.
