Liberty Cup a smash hit

 

Beach Service Center started the second annual Liberty Cup with a resounding first place finish in the Yamaha Corporate run off division. Amid the thundering sounds of engines, and the booming voice of the water-cross announcer, stood the largest rider-turnout since the Liberty Cup water-cross race made its area debut at the Beach last year.

Apart from Beach Service Center, the only other area water-cross competitor was Novice Ski Stock racer, Kevin Parks, from Frederickburg.

Thrilled to be back on the shores of Colonial Beach, Liberty Cup director, AJ Handler said, “We are really excited about returning to Colonial Beach. Everybody in town has welcomed all us with open arms.”

The Liberty Cup is the fifth stop for the 2012 Hydro Turf UWP-IJSBA National Tour. The event took place in Colonial Beach, near the town’s pier. 

As one of eight regional tours located in the New England area of the United States, Upstate Watercraft Promotions, Inc. (UWP) was founded and sanctioned by International Jet Sport Boating Association (IJSBA) 16 years ago. 

Three years ago, after partnering with UWP, IJSBA has given new life to the sport of water-cross racing all over the country.

Renowned for its unique seascapes, Colonial Beach continues to be a tailor-made fit for water-cross racing. “Every area that we go has its uniqueness about it,” Handler said. “When we started out in Panama City, we had the big ocean waves. Immediately afterwards we traveled to the river in Montgomery, Alabama. Later we overcame the flat terrain associated with Reno, Nevada. The interesting thing about Colonial Beach is that spectators are provided a great view of the race because of the pier.”

Competition started on Friday afternoon with the traditional races that feature corporate sponsors. “We show appreciation for all of our sponsors,” Handler said. “Rather than say thank you for sponsoring our event, we wanted to give them hands-on experience, by placing them on the water-craft, and give them the spotlight they are due.”

Among the 24 races, the event also featured national champion, and Monster Energy Mountain Motor sports Yamaha rider Dustin Farthing. On the second day of the event, he won two motos to take second place overall. Currently, Farthing is the Pro-Am Roundabout Open leader with 240 points.

The event also showcased the talents of first time Pro Am Ski GP class winner, Dean’s Team Yamaha rider, Abdullah Alfadhel.
