The 2012 Bridge to Bridge race was held last weekend, this event saw the fastest jetski’s in New Zealand take on each other down the Waikato river. The top ski’s in the open class reach speeds of 95+mph, yes that’s over 150kmph. They compete over two legs (up stream and then back down stream) and it takes the fast jet ski’s just over 8 minutes to complete a leg.
This year saw Mark Rosco on his full custom turbocharged Sea-doo powered Yamaha GPR win by over two minutes, Second place was Craig Brown riding a stock Kawasaki 300x, followed by John Kelly on a Sea-doo RXP-X.
