Regularity wrap – day three

For a team not even going to enter, you’d think you’d be happy in third place in the regularity category, but Jeff Beable just reckons he’s getting confused. He shouldn’t – it’s his 21st Targa Tasmania.

“We weren’t going to enter, but we opted to run in regularity to help fill the numbers.

“We thought regularity would be simple enough - but it ‘aint simple. It’s a really, really tough call.

“The stop doesn’t work, I get confused and she (wife and co-driver Nerida) just yells numbers at me which don’t mean a thing, but we’re still having fun,” Beable told Targa Media. 

Father and son team Phillip and David Frith still lead the category on 42 points, ahead of Darryl and Andrew Marshall on 55 points. The Beables aren’t far behind sitting on 57 points. Who knows they could end up winning the event they weren’t going to enter!

Here Are The Top Five Reasons To Not Do A Targa Rally

5. You will become addicted

This is another big gap in the documentation from Targa Australia, nowhere does it warn you about this and it will be hard for many to avoid. Although, once you get a taste for the amazing twisty closed roads, being part of a large motorsport event, drooling over lots of cars, getting sore cheeks from smiling too much and getting that little taste of what race drivers get to enjoy….you will most likely become addicted and want to do it again. You’ve been warned!

The Porsche Targa High Country Tour in a 718 Cayman GTS

Sports cars are designed to be driven hard. Foot to the floor, tyres gripping, the engine singing, and you don’t even glance at the speedometer. Try doing that on a public road, though, and say goodbye to your car and licence. But what if you could do all that legally? The Targa Australia rally series is just that.

CarAdvice was invited to the Porsche Targa High Country Tour this year to drive the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS around Mount Buller, Mansfield, and Eildon over three days.
