The Emerald Grand Prix
March 15 - March 17
The Emerald Grand Prix is returning in 2019 to that quintessential American landmark, The Flora-Bama Lounge and Bar. With dates booked in for Mar 15-17, The Emerald Grand Prix aims to grow jetski racing for junior riders as well as expose the sport to members of the military, in a professional, IJSBA sanctioned event over the St Patrick’s Day weekend.
The Emerald Grand Prix is all about providing opportunities for those who are curious about jetski racing. It is a great chance for seasoned jetski racers to warm up before national tour season kicks off but is also a unique chance for new riders to come along, give racing a go or even just see what it is all about. The Emerald Grand Prix committee has appointed several ambassadors who will be here exclusively for the event to mentor new riders, answer questions about getting into watercross racing and help guide new racers into the sport. Along with racing events, The Emerald Grand Prix will be hosting a Military Day, exclusive to members of the military, who will have the opportunity to get a glimpse and have a hands-on experience on our world class racing boats.
Often called ‘America’s Last Great Roadhouse’, The Flora-Bama consists of 6 bars in one and gets its name by being located close to the interstate line between Florida and Alabama. It is always bustling with frequent live entertainment (music 365 days a year!), it is even kid friendly (until about 6pm!) and has been mentioned in various rave reviews on USA Today, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and the Huffington Post just to name a few.
With a stellar location such as this, even more talented and new racers than ever, and watercross experts putting on the anticipated race of the season, it is an event not to be missed.
