Targa Tasmania 2012: Day 0 update

Targa Tasmania 2012 prologue

If you’ve not been paying attention you’ll have missed that Targa Tasmania started earlier in the week. We’ve not helped the cause by being a bit lax with our updates. To help make up there’s a selection of videos after the break showing the action from Day 0, otherwise known as Prologue day. It’s a pretty informal day of ‘competition’ where the results only count to the daily starting order for the rally proper.

Previous winner Jason White got off to a poor start when he blew an engine in his Lamborghini Gallardo on the media day. Thankfully he was able to put things right before the prologue. So much so that he posted the fastest time in the Modern outright category on the George Town stage.

Five-time Classic outright winner Rex Broadbent was back on form in his 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, too; quickest in George Town by 2.8 seconds from Jon Siddons in his 1970 Datson 240Z.
