Mark Cranny’s ‘Hellrazor’, with Damien Matthews observing and crack ski racers Jason Walmsley and Peter Proctor doing the hard work has blitzed the field to win the Mildura 100 GTS Freight Management Super Class.

In winning, ‘Hellrazor’ also established a new race record, the time of 31 minutes, 27 seconds beating the former top time by three seconds.

Coincidentally, Peter Proctor was also part of the former race record, set behind ‘Hellbent’ with the same driver/observer, but with Chris Gelle his partner on ski.
