Wiseco Signs On for IJSBA World Finals

Wiseco Performance Products has reached an agreement to support the 2018 International Jet Sports Boating Association Blowsion World Finals at Lake Havasu, AZ, on Oct. 1-7.

Wiseco Performance Products, a leading manufacturer of high performance, forged and billet pistons for the personal watercraft, outboard marine, powersports, snowmobile, and automotive markets, has reached an agreement to support the 2018 International Jet Sports Boating Association Blowsion World Finals at Lake Havasu, AZ, on Oct. 1-7.

Wiseco will serve as a vendor sponsor and has been a fixture at the event for decades. Representatives will be on site to offer technical expertise while supporting racers and discussing products with fans and competitors, alike.

Wiseco offers forged pistons for many popular personal watercraft applications and supplies factory pistons for Krash Industries custom skis. The Mentor, Ohio-based organization currently sponsors five-time IJSBA World Champion Tyler Hill.

The IJSBA World Finals is the world’s premier event for all things personal watercraft. Now in its 37th consecutive year of operation, the IJSBA World Finals continues to be the unrivaled showcase of the human spirit in forms of engineering, athletic achievement, camaraderie, and sportsmanship.

The IJSBA is the worldwide sanctioning body for personal watercraft competitive racing. The 2018 Blowsion World Finals will take place in Lake Havasu City at Crazy Horse Campground and Resort. A custom stadium environment is purpose built on the shoreline of the park to create a unique up-close and personal watercraft experience.

“Wiseco is proud to be a part of this year’s IJSBA World Finals,” said Dave Sulecki, Wiseco’s Powersports product manager. “This event has always been the culmination of the season with racers from coast to coast going at it for one last run. Racing on the water is in Wiseco’s DNA. Not many people know that Wiseco was founded by a water racer. Clyde Wiseman was an outboard racer with an idea that became Wiseco Pistons over 75 years ago.”

“To this day,” Sulecki continues, “Wiseco tailors our product line to racers who focus on results with leading edge pistons and products. Grass roots racing has always been part of our identity and we’re looking forward to supporting all the Wiseco racers at the IJSBA World Finals. We appreciate everyone involved and we expect many more years of success for this series.”
The World Finals is centered around Closed Course Racing, Slalom Racing and Freestyle Competition. Closed Course Racing has a starting line of personal watercraft dashing towards a first turn buoy and then navigating several laps through a buoy course. Slalom Racing is a timed event where riders maneuver around a buoy course in hopes of having the fastest time in their division. Freestyle has individual athletes demonstrating tricks and stunts during a one or two-minute routine for a judge’s score. Professionals, Amateurs, Juniors and Women’s divisions will bring hundreds of athletes from more than 50 nations to compete for the title of World Champion. Only the Olympic Games have more individual nations represented at a single venue.”

“My favorite place to race is Lake Havasu,” Hill said. “I love the rough water conditions, especially in the fall at the World Championships. I think I race my best when a challenge awaits me. I am a very loyal racer to my sponsors and want to represent them as a positive influence in the sport of watercraft racing. Wiseco has been very generous and I truly appreciate their support.”
