Excitement is building around the Sporting Club of South Australia’s Ray Pank Winter Cup taking place this weekend, with a mammoth entry list confirmed for the third round of the 2023 season. 
More than 70 competitors will make the trip to the popular Collingrove Hillclimb in Mount McKenzie, the location of both previous rounds of the cup held in April and June respectively.  
Each entrant will go head-to-head against fellow class contenders in order to post the fastest individual time across the 685-metre bitumen circuit, with the fastest being crowned the outright winner for the event alongside the number of class honours that will also be handed out at days end.  
There will be a large range of eligible vehicle classes taking the track throughout the day, from road regulated 2WD to impressive open-wheel Formula, there will be a little something for everyone, whether you are attending as a competitor or a spectator.  

Headlining the momentous entry list is David Mahon in his #99 Dallara Hayabusa, with the four-time Motorsport Australia South Australian Hillclimb Champion the potential favourite to take out the outright honours. 
Although, Mahon will be have the likes of David Coombe to contend with - Coombe to return to Mount McKenzie in his impressive Mitsubishi EVO 7 where he will look to claim another round victory at the expense of the state champion.  
Collingrove Challenge Trophy Series winner, Harry Pfeiffer will also get behind the wheel of his Mallock U2 MK1 and look to spoil the party, while his brother Bailey will also compete in his Subaru WRX after a top 10 finish in June.
