P1 Sarasota Grand Prix of the Sea

St. Armands Circle / Lido Key Beach

The 34th Sarasota Grand Prix Festival will once again welcome the SuperStock USA Championship on June 30 and July 1.

The finale of the SuperStock Championship will take place ahead of the Fourth of July weekend as powerboat racing and jet ski racing team up for a weekend of speed and power in front of hundreds of thousands of fans gathered on Lido Beach.

Located on Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast, Sarasota County provides the quintessential white-sand beach getaway, perfect for absorbing the noise, power and excitement of a double-bill of world class powerboat and jet ski racing.

Dubbed the "Home of the American Circus," Sarasota County served as the headquarters for the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus for 75 years, and fans can experience its special culture first-hand by following the circus trail or catching a performance by one of two local circus companies.

Last season Sarasota played host to the penultimate round of the 2017 SuperStock USA Championship as Spectre made their championship credentials clear with a clean sweep of victories.
