Targa Tasmania 2012: Day 2 update

Jason White, Lamborghini Gallardo, Targa Tasmania 2012

Wet weather greeted the field in Targa Tasmania on Day 2 of competition. Sadly, that meant a fair bit of bent metal, as you’ll see in the videos below.

Jason White continues to lead the Modern outright class in his Lambo. He enjoys a 48 second buffer to defending champ Tony Quinn in a Nissan GT-R. The big mover was Matt Close in the Audi TT RS,moving from sixth place into third, an even one minute behind White.

In the Classic outright competition things are a bit tighter, Rex Broadbent has his 1974 Porsche Carrera RS 14 seconds ahead of the awesome sounding 1970 Datsun 240Z driven by Jon Siddons. In third place, only 29 seconds behind the Porsche is Donn Todd in his 1971 Ford Capri Perana.
