Super Social seven speed into Sunday skiing

Seven teams have commenced an action-packed day of racing at this year’s Southern 80 by taking part in this morning’s Super Social event, which was one of three or more class competitions for each crew.
Showbiz, Synthetic, ORSM Racing, Doindough, Chosen F2, Velocity Racing and Reactor all took part in this mornings session and finished second, third, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and tenth respectively in class.
In total 33 boats were entered to line up in three more classes this weekend, but of the seven in this morning’s Super Social class it was Showbiz who were best placed, finishing second to the Mike Jones driven Bad Temper.
That results is a nice addition to their Unlimited Outboard Social win from Saturday. The team of David Tidswell (driver), Raymond Curtis (observer), Paul Phegan and Brayden Harris (skiers) will be at it again this afternoon as they take on the F2 Expert class.
Meanwhile Synthetic chalked up a second place in the 5.2 & 6 Litre social class yesterday, were third in Super Social today, and will line up 38th for the expert class this afternoon courtesy of their President’s Dash result yesterday.
Of the seven, strong Saturday results also went to Chosen F2, second in Unlimited Outboard Social, Reactor who were second in Unlimited Inboard Social and Velocity Racing who were fifth in Unlimited Outboard Social.
All of the above mentioned teams were in today’s Super Social top 10, and all line up in the expert classes this afternoon.
In Junior Boys Expert it was Chief who commanded the pack, leading home Hooligan and The Player, those three separated by less than one minute after their 80-kilometre trek. Junior girls belonged to Double Trouble.
In Sub Junior Girls Target was first home ahead of Thundernuts and Flaamin, while in the corresponding girls class Sonic Boats took the win.
Weekend Warrior class was won by Arkham Asylum F2, in what might be an omen for this afternoon. Brutal were first in 70mph, Burn N Wood in 60mp/h, both classes presenting a challenge in speed control for their drivers Greg Wheeler and Kris Freeman.
Attention now turns to the main event, which is underway on the Murray River.
