Yamaha’s FX HO WaveRunner is not the first PWC that comes to mind when we think of racing, but that doesn’t mean it’s not capable of winning races. This point was proven in the Normally-Aspirated division of the recent Mark Hahn 300 endurance race in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.
Yamaha/R&D Powersports rider Amy Green and her international team of Andreas Kubatzki and Craig Kelling bested the field at this grueling race aboard a 2012 Yamaha FX HO.
“This win is a real testament to the performance and reliability of the new Yamaha FX HO,” says Green, who won the 2011 Women’s World title aboard a Yamaha FZR. “With a few minor modifications by R&D Powersports, the FX HO performed flawlessly over a grueling 300-mile course where other brands were dropping out like flies.”
“The new hull design on the FX HO, combined with its already legendary 1.8L engine, is quickly making it the boat of choice for off shore riders and endurance races where stability, reliability and utmost user control are required,” says Yamaha’s Scott Watkins. “This first win proves its potential and we look forward to seeing it in further competitions this year.”
The Mark Hahn 300 is recognized as the longest continuous personal watercraft race in the world. The annual race was created in the memory of endurance racer Mark Hahn who was instrumental in promoting endurance PWC racing across the country before his untimely death in 2004.
