We’ve been telling you about Powerboat P1 racing action for months—the great European race venues, professional sanctioning body, rough water, endurance races, fierce competition, excitement! Now, you can see it all for yourself on SPEED, starting Saturday, December 1 at 11 AM.

This first segment is a season preview, with future race shows airing on Sundays, starting Dec. 2 with the Maltese Grand Prix of the Sea season opener at 11 AM.

Each show will repeat on Monday at 9 AM, (on 12/3 there will be back-to-back recaps of the season preview and the season opener in Malta at 9 and 9:30 AM), so if you missed the Saturday or Sunday show and are at work on Monday, get your DVR’s going to save this action for future watching!
