Rex Boradbent, Targa Tasmania 2012

As Targa Tasmania enters its fourth day here’s an update of what happened on Day 3. Mostly it was a good day for the leaders of the two main categories, with both Jason White (Lamborghini Gallardo) and Rex Broadbent (1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS) extending their leads in the Modern and Classic outright classes respectively.

White holds a lead of 1 minute 48 seconds over Tony Quinn (Nissan GT-R), with Matt Close (Audi TT RS) 2 minutes 16 seconds behind the leader.

Broadbent extended his lead on a tricky third day to a comfortable 3 minutes 7 seconds, with Jon Siddons (1970 Datusn 240Z) holding on to to second place. Siddons has a 1 minute 41 second buffer over Donn Todd (1971 Ford Capri Perana).

Simon Evans (Mazda3 MPS) leads the 2WD showroom class from Gavin James (Renault Megans RS 250), while Jamie Vandenburg (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX) currently tops the 4WD showroom category  ahead of Dean Evans (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X).
