WIN a family pass to see the Powerboat GP World Championships this weekend


The exhilarating sport of powerboat racing is one that is best experienced live – and this weekend you can do just that as the Powerboat GP Championships get underway at the National Watersports Centre.

This event will see 52 powerboat racers from 12 different countries battle it out to claim the title of World Champion. There are also three European Championship titles up for grabs.

Watch skilled racers twist and turn across the water and marvel at their speed, which sometimes exceeds 70mph. The National Watersports Centre is also perfect for spectators because all the action takes place in a relatively confined space with viewing points all around the man-made lake.

To buy your tickets for the event visit the website.

We have teamed with the event’s organisers to give you the chance to WIN a family pass to the event for either Saturday or Sunday. Simply fill in the form below by 2pm TOMORROW for your chance to win. If you are successful you will be contacted by telephone shortly afterwards.

This competition has now closed.
