The 2022 Full Throttle Watercross schedule has finally been announced.
There is going to be a total of seven events spread throughout three states in the western region. The season opener takes place in March at the Havasu Landing Resort & Casino located in Havasu Lake, CA on the Chemehuevi reservation. This is the first time that personal watercraft racing is going to take place at this beautiful newly remodeled and rebuilt resort overlooking the western front of beautiful Lake Havasu and the Colorado River.
The series' season finale points event will also take place at the Havasu Landing Resort & Casino in September where the series champions will be crowned at the awards banquet.
The 2nd and 3rd rounds of the championship will take place at the notorious Nautical Beach Front Resort in Lake Havasu City, AZ. The Nautical is well-known in the jets racing world as the IJSBA World Finals started here way back in 1982, and is beloved by many OG racers and fans. We are very excited to be coming back to this venue as its always one of the biggest turnouts for racers and fans.
Then the series heads north for two rounds at the water-filled playground of Camp Far West.
Known as the "body beach of norcal" it is expected to be a very large turnout of amateur to professional racers and freestyle riders.
After a short stint at the Northern California venue, FullThrottleWaterX returns to Arizona for the season finale at the Nautical.
We have decided to do something different this year. Racers always complain about never having any events once late fall and winter comes around. This year there is going to be a non-points Dual Slalom Bracket Racing event, where racer can test their slalom skills against their competitors to see who's really the best in the business. It will be a best of three format, where competitiors will go head to head in the first round, switch lanes for the second round, and if its even coming into the third round, they will switch lanes again for the third and final duel... Winner moved on, as the loser will drop into the losers bracket and will continue to race until we have one clear slalom champion. Double elimination!
The slalom classes will be: Ski GP, Ski Stock, Ski Lites, Ski Vintage, Runabout GP, Runabout EX/Spark, Sport Spec, X2 Open, and Juniors Ski Lites!
The non-points event will also feature drag racing, as well as amateur and professional freestyle competition.
It's going to be a wild, fun-filled, long season. We hope to see everyone at all the events. Stay up to date with the social media and news page for any updates.
P.S. There will be purse payouts and a cash contingency program for certain classes as well as a cash bonus for winning the overall championship (you must attend every event)
