Competitors around the world will be vying for The King’s Cup title at the Jet Ski King’s Cup 2012 World Cup Grand Prix, Dec. 5-9 in Pattaya City, Thailand. This high intensity race event will pit riders from all over including our own Sea-Doo X-Team riders.
This is the 15th year of the competition that originally attracted riders from the Asia Pacific region and has now grown to include racers from all over the world. In 2008, the World Cup Grand Prix system was introduced and sanctioned by the International Jet Sport Boating Association (IJSBA) to allow equal opportunities to racers worldwide. In each of the Pro categories, each nation is allowed to only send 4 riders to compete in this fast paced, complex race.
Representing Sea-Doo in the King’s Cup World Cup Grand Prix will be:
- James Bushell – United Kingdom
- Jared Moore – South Africa
- Eric Lagopulos – USA
- Jean Botti – France
- Chokuthit Molee – Thailand
Good luck to all the Sea-Doo X-Team riders!
