P1 SuperStock Championship Powers into Southampton
Councillor, John Hannides, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Heritage, has thrown his weight behind Powerboat P1 and he believes that the Southampton Grand Prix of the Sea on Sunday 12 September is an exciting addition to the line-up at this year's PSP Southampton Boat Show.
"Southampton is extremely proud of its maritime heritage and every year the city looks forward to hosting the show," said Hannides.
He added: "The presence of the P1 SuperStock Championship at this year's national marine festival injects another exciting dimension to the show and also brings the extra value of television coverage on British Eurosport, which will showcase the historic port and the city's excellent marine facilities.
"Southampton is recognised as the home for British powerboat racing and it will be great to see many of the home-grown pilots, some of the best in the UK, racing on Southampton Water this weekend."
The Southampton Grand Prix of the Sea is a free-to-view event and begins at 11:00 on Sunday 12 September.
