Following almost two seasons of COVID disruption we are finally heading back to the picturesque location of Kinloch, Lake Taupo for Jet Ski Racing New Zealand’s end of season finals this year.
A highlight on the annual jet ski racing calendar, this exciting two day event provides racers with their last chance to earn points towards a final placing in the 2021 Summer Series and the opportunity to compete in the Aqua-X Grand Prix. This will be two days of high energy competition, raced under UIM rules with pole skis and runabout classes included.
FINAL OF THE SUMMER SERIES
Round 5 will be held on Saturday and a prizegiving for that round will be held on the beach at the end of racing. Round 6 will be held on Sunday. At the conclusion of racing, points will be tallied to determine end of season placings. See how you’re tracking on the points table here.
