Insane performance

Named after the famed psychiatric hospital in the Batman universe, Melbourne’s Arkham Asylum team brought home the bacon in the President’s Dash on Saturday following the Baker’s Blitz Superclass event.

The Gotham-themed grouping posted a very impressive 6:56:08mins ahead of Mildura regulars Pigs’ Arsenal (7:01:91).

The opportunity to run the Blitz course for second-tier teams was taken up by 33 entrants and a number performed better on the clock than their Superclass counterparts.

Indeed, Sunday afternoon’s top 40 starting order saw 10 of the best 20 finishers from the Saturday ahead of Superclass boats.

Outside of The Mistress and Sapphire, the Dash teams otherwise dominated the next half of the standings, including Arkham Asylum pipping the Psycho Clowns on raw numbers, while Pigs Arsenal, Burnin’ and Temper 2 can all claim to be quicker than Strike Force.

1350, Brimstone, Moonshot, Temper, Tru Blue and Blown Cash had the better of top-flighters Top Gun, Merc Force and Superman combined.
