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.
