The action promises to be fast and furious with race boats reaching speeds of up to 70mph and will be broadcast on Sky Sports TV.

As well offering a great vantage point to watch the racing itself, the West Pier and harbour area is expected to be a hive of activity as it hosts entertainment and stalls throughout the weekend.

P1 chief operating officer Robert Wicks said:

"The Queen of the Yorkshire Coast offers first class facilities and attractions and will be a great location to launch our 2015 season, which will see P1 racers and riders compete for national titles at five venues around the country, including Cardiff and Bournemouth, across the summer."

Cllr David Chance, Scarborough Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism and Culture said:

"We are absolutely delighted that Scarborough has been chosen by P1 for its season opener in 2015."

"Our tourism team has worked very hard behind the scenes to secure the crucial sponsorship required to deliver such a large scale event. We now look forward, with excitement, to working closely with the P1 team in the coming months to bring a truly first class spectacle to the Yorkshire coast."

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, added:

"It is great news for the Yorkshire coast, and indeed the rest of Yorkshire, that Scarborough has been chosen to kick off the 2015 P1 powerboat season.  It promises to be the perfect showcase for what the stunning Yorkshire coast has to offer, and a world-class event of this scale is an exciting prospect for all."
