After the King’s Cup during 10-11 December 2006, the biggest racing event on the Eastern world and the final one of the year, there was a discussion during a visit from Mr. Scott Frazier to the executive committee of TJSBA about an effort to bring more international interst to watercraft racing in Asia.
Mr Parikhet Subsahakarn, Committee Member of the Thai Jet Sports Boating Associating and Managing Director of the Asian Multi Sports and Entertainment Co, Ltd., who organizes the event and makes development plan for the jet ski in Thailand, said that after a visit to the King’s Cup tournament by Mr. Scott Frazier, the IJSBA president, there is a good sign for positive changes on the IJSBA side. We have seen IJSBA’s true intention and strong determination to strengthen the jet ski movements all around the world.
The Thai - Japan Asian Watercross Supercup 2006 will be the first racing competition between the two nations in Asia. It will be included in the first round of Thai National Championship to be held from 4-5 March 2006 in Phuket, dubbed “the Pearl of the Andaman” which is one of the hottest holiday destinations. 12 best racers from Japan in association with JJSF will come to compete in this special tournament in Pro-Am Ski 800 Open, Pro-Am Sport 800 Open, and Pro-Am R/A 1200 Open. It will be another "most exciting" racing we have never seen before. Thai, Japanese and viewers all over Asia will witness the excitement from the racing.
“This is an exciting development for all PWC Racing,” added Scott Frazier. “As the sales of Personal Watercraft continue to increase across the globe, IJSBA affiliates have the potential to draw perspective racers from new pools of PWC owners. By consolidating resources and efforts, organizations like the TJSBA can entice new participants by means of offering a limited number of premiere events in place of several scale events. This appears to be a worldwide trend in an effort to help racers get the best race experience at the lowest out of pocket expenses. The TJSBA has definitely proven that they know how to build an event into a world class affair.”
The IJSBA is proud to sanction the Thai Japan Asian Watercross Supercup and will post results as soon as they become available.
