Friths take Regularity - again

Philip and David Frith have claimed back-to-back titles in the increasingly popular Regularity category of Targa Tasmania.
The Friths were the stars of Regularity
The father and son team finished on 92 points.

“This year is possibly as satisfying as last year’s win because we had a bigger field,” Philip said.

“We stuffed up in the first stages, so we had to really concentrate to get back into the lead and the wet stages were also a challenge.”

The Frith’s Porche Boxter S led the final four days of competition in a category where crews drive to a pre-determined average speed over the event’s closed road stages.

“We’ve done this (regularity) a few times now, so we’re used to how it works. My son David works it all out. He’s the brains of the operation and I’m the right foot,” Philip said.

 “We like regularity because it’s simply safer than the full Targa.”

The category drew a wide range of vehicles – from a 1970 Triumph Stag to a 2013 Ford Mustang.

Day one leaders Jeff and Nerida Beable finished second in their Nissan R35 on 156 points.

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.
