Hellrazor will have clear water in front of it tomorrow at the 2013 Southern 80 ski race after winning the Bakers' Blitz today.By Geordie Cowan
Hellrazor is in prime position to win its fourth straight Club Marine Southern 80 after dominating the Beechworth bakery Bakers’ Blitz.
Driver Mark Cranny thought the weather conditions did not allow his team to perform near its best, but Hellrazor was extremely close to breaking the record set by The Syndicate in 2010 of 6:34, finishing in 6:37.53.
Gassa was second with 6:53.80, while 99 Psycho Clowns was third.
This was despite 99 Psycho Clowns being forced to complete their run after the President’s Dash due to a red flag in an incident involving Blazen skier Grant Turner.
Sapphire Racing (6:55.44) was fourth, while fifth-placed Leo Welch proclaimed himself ‘‘really happy’’ after The Sealord Mistress finished in 6:59.76 — the first time it had completed the event in less than seven minutes.
Other results: Superman (7:08.13), Merc Force (07:08.59), Elm Street (7:11.54), Hellbent (7:15.71), Top Gun (7:30.76), The Syndicate (7:33.25).
