HIGH-speed action on the sea is on offer to one lucky competition winner.

To mark the start of the Gosport Grand Prix of the Sea, P1 SuperStock is giving one fan the chance to get out on the water and experience a thrilling ride in a Panther P1 race boat.

The winner, and their friend, will be able to meet the racers the day before the grand prix starts and have a ride in one of the 28ft state-of-the-art Panther P1 powerboats, which can reach speeds of up to 70mph.

They will sit alongside The Lycamobile Racing team driver Arran Scott for some high-speed action.

Photographs will be taken while the competition winner is out on the water as part of the prize.

Roy Mantle from P1 said: ‘The P1 Grand Prix of the Sea is coming to Gosport when a fleet of 10 P1 powerboats and more than 40 jet ski riders will be racing at Stokes Bay. It will be fast, furious and free to watch.

‘On-shore at the race village there will be live music hosted by Wave 105, a funfair, beer tent and international market.

‘If you would like to have the chance of experiencing the thrill of riding in a P1 Panther race boat at speeds of over 60mph, then try our powerboat competition.’

To enter, answer this question: What is the name of the P1 SuperStock team which is sponsored by a brand of British tea?

All entrants, plus the friend they bring along, must be over 18 years old and in good health.
