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.

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.
