For the first time ever, 'Nexa P1 Powerboat racing' has come to Mumbai, and is being referred as the Indian Grand Prix of the Seas. The powerboat racing event is brought to India by Neil Holmes and James Durbin, which will begin from today onwards and will conclude on Sunday, March 5. Team MissKyra got an EXCLUSIVE coverage of Nexa P1 Powerboat pre-race trials on 2nd March, 2017.
Talking about the powerboat race, it will have seven teams (with two boats each) competing on a tailor-made 5.2 km course in the Arabian Sea. Participating in Mumbai's debut powerboat race, Radio Mirchi has two powerboats, Mirchi Mavericks 95 and Mirchi Mavericks 98.3, competing in the event.
While the races will begin today, MissKyra got an exclusive video coverage of pre-race trial last evening. Seen enjoying the powerboat pre-race trials was the Times Group owner, Vineet Jain who rode on Mirchi Maverick 95. Talking about the experience, Vineet Jain said, "Nexa P1 is a new revolution in the sporting landscape of India. Times group has been closely associated with bringing global events and adventure sports to India, hence, it was but obvious that we support P1 powerboat racing. Our team Mirchi Mavericks incorporates the core values of India’s No.1 Radio brand, Radio Mirchi… unconventional, peppy and definitely Hot."
