Ski racing to hop into Mildura this Easter

The Mildura 100 – the final race of the 2018/19 river classics season – is set to light up the Murray River this Easter as more than 300 teams take to the famous waterway.

Run along the river between the Mildura Ski Club and Wickets Sandbar, some 50km away, the Mildura 100 is billed as ‘the fastest ski race in the world’.

Racing is set to kick off on Saturday morning at 8.30am with the first leg of the social classes, the return journey scheduled to begin between noon and 1pm.

Later on Saturday afternoon (2pm) the Bullfish Seafood Bar and Grill Top 40 Shootout will bring all the noise and excitement expected of the day’s highlight.

The superclass will feature three entrants – Superman (Darren McGuire, Brett Armstrong, Daniel Graziano, Daniel Cotton), Pigs Arsenal (Chris Stevens, Mark Boyer, Sean Stevens, Jack Stevens) and record breaking Southern 80 winners TR (Ian Tricker, Nathan Miller, Reece Simmonds, Ray Ball).

Last year Superman won the Shootout from Stinga F1 and Strike Force.

Take a look below at Saturday’s action at the 2018 Mildura 100.

Sunday at 9am brings the expert class events headed by the big boats in superclass and the challengers in the unlimited inboard category. The return leg is due to commence between 12-1pm, with presentations set for approximately 430pm.

Superman (pictured above) were first home, carving close to 17-seconds off the race record in the process.

At an average speed of more than 111 miles per hour, the team who hail from NSW, fended off a challenge from Arkham Asylum and local crew Pigs Arsenal to win the race in 30 minutes, 41 seconds.
