The Official APA Championship Website


Asia Powerboat Association Training Centre

In 2022 the APA opened its purpose made training centre in Bangsaray, Chon Buri, Thailand. Our training courses provide students with all the theory and practical skills they need to race in one of our events. The training centre is residential and the course cost includes all airport transfers, accommodation, classroom sessions, practical sessions and a mini-championship to end the course. We offer all this for just £850 and all those that pass the course get an APA racing license. If you’re interested in joining a class please complete our application form and we will send you upcoming dates.
