After captivating near-sellout crowds for the past two years, the jetsprint boats are set to power their way into Mt Maunganui's Baypark Stadium again next January, this time bringing a whole new level of hi-octane, international motor racing action.

Up to 60 high-powered boats, top teams and drivers from the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand will battle it out for world titles across three classes: Suzuki Unlimited Superboats, Altherm Group A, Biolytix Group B (400s).

These precision-engineered jet boats reach 0-100kph in under two seconds, and pull up to 7g's and 130kph on the aqua-track purpose-built on the stadium's rugby in-field. The stadium setting allows spectators to get up close to the to the racing action, providing 6-8 hours of thrills, spills and family entertainment - both on and off the track.

There's a free dedicated Kids Fun Zone with giant water slide, bouncy castles, balloons, face painting and more, all in a safe and secure setting with food, drinks, ice creams, slashes, candy floss and fresh coffee. (Children Under 14 years must be supervised.) The pits area will open for limited session to allow kids (big and small) to check out the boats up close, and meet the international race teams and world champions first-hand.

BACKGROUND: The exhilarating sport of jet sprinting originated in 1981 on the same braided rivers that produced the world-famous Hamilton Jet. It showcases kiwi ingenuity and love of motor-racing, V8’s and boating. National championships, under the auspices of UIM (Union Internationale Motonautique) are run on permanent aqua-tracks in picturesque settings in New Zealand, Australia, US and Canada. The sport is enjoying huge growth, capturing media attention and attracting a growing fan base around the world. The biennial UIM Jetsprint World Championship won’t be returning to our shores until 2022 - so don't miss this opportunity to check out the international field, and support our Kiwi teams defending their current world titles.
