INTRODUCE OF FRANKY ZAPATA
“I started the jet in 1996, when I was 17 years old, by the smallest category, which is the original stand up Jet Ski, in France Championship.
All these years have been as beautiful as they have been difficult. I often fought alone and against the biggest factories in the world.
Until the day I have been contacted to join one of them, after winning over them, in 2005. This is when I became official pilot of SEA DOO-BRP. From the beginning, I chose to create my own team in order to be able to manufacture the jet skis myself, and, to have the best product possible.
All the difficulties I encountered during all these years, because of having my own stable, are my main asset today, my best quality. Because of financial problems, I have been forced to be on all the posts, sportive and professionals, sometimes designer of my races’ hulls, but as well motorist, mechanical, developer and even commercial to prospect sponsors, and to develop a network of distribution for my parts.
Since I started, I have been used to work with important inequalities. My main competitors only had to focus on running, and the teams they were running for had several millions dollars of annual budget.
Despite all this, we often manage to beat them. Today, my biggest asset, my strength, is the experience I won during all these years of running, working, by being pilot and designer of the jet ZAPATA RACING®. I have been able to create jet skis much more accomplished and much more powerful than the ones of my competitors.
I develop them from day to day, I’m paying attention and I’m quick to react to the expectations and needs ‘ evolution. Today, with my stand up jet skis, I have accomplished my bet. My jet skis represent 70% in the starting block of regionnal, national and international championships. From now on, my long term goal is to develop and to ensure the continued existence of my company and brand ZAPATA RACING®. With the creation of our new 3 seaters, I think ZAPATA RACING® will last for quite some time.”
