The Sea-Doo X-TEAM continued the domination of world finals watercraft racing, claiming 11 championships*, nearly double that of the closest competing brand. György Kasza of Hungary continued to build the Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft dynasty with his repeat win in the premier Pro Open class bringing the total in that class to six years running. Kasza was joined on the podium by RXP-X mounted racers Mohammed Burbayea of Kuwait and Jun Ikoma Funabashi of Japan for a Pro Open clean sweep for the Sea-Doo X-TEAM.

Also adding to the dynasty is the sixth consecutive PRO GP championship win with Waleen Alsharshani taking the win with  James Bushell of the UK taking the runner-up spot on his Sea-Doo RXP-X followed by fellow X-TEAM rider Erminio Iantosca of the US, filling out the podium. The event, attended by the top riders in the world, proved the dynasty of performance dominance lives with the Sea-Doo 300-HP watercraft models. The 2017 Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 and RXT-X 300 come equipped with a new ROTAX 1630 ACE engine, that together with the new Ergolock system, allows riders to enjoy more performance, confidence and greater control to push limits even further.

Guests were able to test ride the new TRIXX model and qualify for the TRIXX Trial Competition in which the finalists were given 90 seconds to show off their best tricks for the opportunity to win a Cyclops action sports camera. The TRIXX Trials Competition will be featured in an upcoming video on Sea-Doo social media channels.
