The first official 2019 race has been confirmed by Super Boat International the other day in a press release announcing their return will take place in New Orleans with the Kenner Super Boat Grand Prix which has been in the works since last September. “My last race in New Orleans was in 2002 when I raced in the world championships,” recalls John Carbonell, president of Super Boat International and a former professional power boat racer. “I am really looking forward to seeing a lot of the old friends I raced with there—I have fond memories not just of racing, but also of those races I produced. There are so many reasons Kenner and New Orleans are special. It will be great to be back to start this year’s race!” As of right now only 3 events have be put on the schedule Kenner, Clearwater, and Key West. As a premier offshore series we are hoping to more stops added to the season but only time will tell.
P1 SuperStock US & OPA Racing have will be joining forces for 2019 to make up new race venues under the banner American Power Boat Association Offshore Championship.

With the rising of P1 SuperStock and the long history of OPA racing it will bring a good balance to both groups. It also appears the new organization will be filling in for some locations that were previously hosted with SBI such as Space Coast Cocoa Beach Grand Prix. 2019 APBA Offshore Championship Cocoa Beach : 17-19 May – ‘Thunder on Cocoa Beach’ Lake of the Ozarks : 31 May -2 June – The Lake Race Sarasota : 5-7 July – Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix Festival St. Clair River Classic : 26-28 July – St. Clair River Classic
