2018 Pro Watercross Tour, Racine, July 28-29, 2018


Racine welcomes the only Pro Watercross Tour stop in Wisconsin this summer July 28-29!

Watercross is basically motocross on Personal Watercrafts (PWCs or jet skis) – but these athletes compete on an unpredictable liquid track, varying from oceans, lakes and rivers. Competitors challenge the notion of what’s possible, utilizing the most advanced equipment reaching speeds of over 85 mph against a full line of competitors to the extreme freestylist landing a double back-flip in surf. This sport is driven by their passion, creating a lifestyle that combines adrenaline and pure enjoyment of being on the water.

2018 Pro Watercross, Racine

Racine Watercross July 28-29, 2018Each race begins with one of the most gut-wrenching experiences in motorsports the side-by-side gated start. Similar to horse racing, a watercross racing start features 20 riders exploding off the line, each thinking to themselves “I’m going to be the first one to that buoy.” Surviving the first-turn is just the beginning. Speed, technique and racing ability will all come into play over the next 20 minutes, as the riders begin to negotiate a series of left and right hand turns.

This exciting event is part of a national tour with stops in Panama City Beach and Pensacola Beach in Florida; Hartwell, GA; and the National Championship in Charleston, WV.

Round Three takes place on the waters of Lake Michigan at Racine’s nationally-recognized North Beach, with plenty of action in Closed Course, Freestyle, Freeride, and Hydrodrag Racing both Saturday, July 28th and Sunday, July 29th.

You can get to Racine’s North Beach via Highways 11, 20, 32, or 38 towards downtown. North Beach is (like its name implies) just north of downtown. It’s just 15 minutes or so off I-41/94.
