Eric Lagopoulos continued his 2014 unbeaten streak in the AQUAX 250 class by sweeping all three mottos on his Sea-Doo GTR 215 taking his season total to six consecutive moto wins. Lagopoulos was joined on the podium by fellow GTR 215 mounted racers Sean Hagan taking second and Tim McKercher rounding out the top three. The Sea-Doo GTR 215 is arguably the watercraft industry’s best keep performance secret as BRP‘s lowest price performance model that is fast with predictable handling yet very forgiving in unpredictable conditions. The GTR 215 model is proving itself as the ultimate mid-range performance watercraft.
The P1 AQUAX racing series continues to grow in popularity as the second round of the US tour took center stage near downtown Jacksonville, Florida in front of an estimated 10,000 race fans over the weekend. After the season opener in the surf of Daytona Beach in April the watercraft racers joined the Evinrude powered Superstock boats for a full throttle weekend of boating competition. The large 1.8 mile track on the St. Johns River provided a good arena for close handlebar-to-handlbar action in a series where the competitors compete on nearly out-of-the-box stock watercraft that places more emphasis on rider ability and stamina than other forms of watercraft racing where modifications play a more significant role. Sea-Doo racers have extra incentive for top finishes at the AQUAX races with extra prize money available to them through the Sea-Doo Bounty racer contingency program, the program that will reward Lagopoulos an extra $250 from BRP for his win.
“The Sea-Doo GTR 215 compliments my riding style and is really fun to ride and race, plus its fast,” said Jacksonville winner Lagopoulos. “I’m looking forward to see if I ride my GTR 215 to the top of the podium at next months round three stop in Tampa, which is basically a hometown race being only 30 minutes north of my home in Sarasota.”
