Don't think so dude, the only recorded record is Darren Kirkland on Windermere behind an inboard @ 95ish MPH
cant see that boat doing much more than 75mph with those motors and even with tuned 2.5's most twins only get somewhere into the 90's

Looks like this one :

It should be a Arrowbolt 21 GT from the 70s. Look at Number 12

The red and white Fletcher above 'NE watersports', 'Team Fletcher' was owned and driven by Clive Griffiths who was a member of Hartlepool club. He was a regular competitor at ski races and did tow Bronwyn Wright of Australia in some of the races at the first world championships in 1979. You can see the boat in this clip from the Welsh Harp round (https://vimeo.com/1502523). The observer named, David Jordan was also a long time Hartlepool skier. He must have sold this in the early mid 80's at a guess.
