Glenney out of Modern

Overnight modern leaders, Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb have been forced to withdraw their Nissan GT-R from Targa Tasmania after failing to fix a gearbox problem overnight.

On the last stage yesterday Glenney noticed a problem.

“Fourth gear just let go.’” Glenney said. “It’s a brand new box and we’re a bit baffled as t why it happened.”

“We asked around but no-one had a spare. So the boys went to Launceston to get the box that failed David Ayers earlier this week, thinking it might be fixable.

“They got back to Strahan about one in the morning, had it going by around four, but there were still faults and issues and couldn’t get it to work properly.

“It’s very frustrating. Sadly we’re getting used to it.

“The pleasing thing about the event is that we left Targa Tasmania last year with a list of things to fix and we had them fixed. But then this happened. We had control of the race.”

With Glenney out, Jason White takes over the lead, with a  one minute 29 second lead over Matt Close with Jamie Vandenberg a further one minute seven seconds back in third.
