Rock Concerts Football, Motor Racing, and the Jetcross World Tour Series have a lot in common. Each needs a venue which can comfortably accommodate of a large numbers of spectators, has easy access to hotel accommodation and airports, some special facilities for the participants and offer a great spectacle for TV audience. Exotic scenery adds even more to the occasion !
The Perfect World Series Venue !
Downtown locations are ideal – where rough river, lake, reservoir, sea or ocean is available and backwash is maximized. Many cities around the world have invested enormous amounts of public funds in waterfront facilities and the Jetcross World Tour Series can be added as one of the main attractions to any Waterfest or City festival.
What we do :
Each venue has its own unique requirements but as a standard we will bring a fleet of race boats, jetskis, teams, support crew and vehicles. The JX Sports fleet bring glamour and excitement and there are options to include demonstrations by Flyboard champion and much more water borne action.
Our event provides an exciting weekend attraction for Tourists and locals and will bring out instant crowds whatever the weather boosting all local outlets. JX Sports brings in a 30 man crew and over 20 teams and riders will instantly boost the local hotel and restaurant trade. Aside from this we provide a whole weekend of live, free to view racing action, generating an instant buzz and excitement around the shoreside. Our own professional crew and safety teams are a mandatory component and they run the racing championship like clockwork safely and seamlessly.
We also work with venues to provide shoreside activities which vary from venue to venue but there is usually activities to occupy all ages between the races. We appreciate that venues need to generate revenue so we help you by bringing in a host of exciting family based shoreside activities. There are opportunities to meet the riders and get autographs plus the televised coverage will help promote your town to a worldwide audience. Our international experience means that we can create an event that suits your city, from full scale festival experiences with carnival rides, stages, bands and performers to low key, intimate venues that are looking at a more elite client base.
How do venues make the final cut ?
The main issues to consider are: dates, tides or water depth for access of boats in and out over a weekend and how much your town is prepared to help both in terms of funding and commitment. The racing could be free for the public to watch, and we like to create a dynamic and interactive atmosphere so our host cities must be pro-active when promoting the race. We can bring the event but no one knows your city like you do and we both want to bring out the crowds so this is a key criteria we sue when assessing any partnership. Our races can immediately help to boost the local economy but we are looking for a minimum commitment of 3 years.
What does it cost ?
That’s the hardest question of all. The answer depends on your ambition.
In some cities the direct funding component has been almost zero with huge value given in promotion and co-operation, in others it’s been well into seven figures, much of it spent building a bigger show.
We all know it’s tough out there so we are very realistic about hosting fees. Don’t be afraid to ask us directly. It will be far less than you imagine and we guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised. If your city has hosted one of the other big maritime race series you will be stunned at what good value Jetcross World Series offers.
How can we help you to bring the action on water ?
The races are designed to attract large numbers of visitors who will stay for 1 or 2 night, so your hotels will be filled. Local vendors and manufacturers and retailers are encouraged to join in and create a wealth of lucrative opportunities. Bars and clubs are used to hold special events before the races begin and over race weekends and councils can benefit directly by exploiting their powers via park and ride scheme, exclusive car parking charges to merchandising, advertising and cross promotion in all the other cities we race in across the globe.
Who have ever hosted Jetcross previous edition ?
