New competitions make Targa debut

Launceston’s Ben Newman, leads the way in the inaugural Sports Trophy competition at Targa High Country, spending the opening day of the three day event creating a handy one minute 11 second buffer over his nearest rival, Martin Farkas.
Ben Newman and the Jaguar impressed on day one
Newman, behind the wheel of the latest model Jaguar F-Type Coupe R, showed his class across the first six stages of the event on the road to Euroa and back to Mt Buller.

Along with his regular co-driver, Crichton Lewis, the experienced pair was quickest on all but the final stage of the day, ensuring a memorable day on the car’s competitive debut.

Martin and Angela Farkas took the honours on the run up Mt Buller in their 2001 BMW M3 to end the day showing they are full of fight with two days remaining.

They are well clear of the third placed combination of Shane and Ashley Nevin, who are 36 seconds further back in their 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo.

In the other class making a competition debut, the Thoroughbred Trophy, Keith and Karl Brooke have established a lead of 56 seconds from their nearest rival in their 1980 Porsche 911.

Derek Jones and Joel Guest are in second place, their 1972 Datsun 240Z enjoying a day in the Victorian countryside.

Two more days remain, and while both competitions have provided plenty of interest on their debut in Targa, its seems way to early to write the final story, with a further 200 competitive kilometres waiting for both car and crew before the finish on Mt Buller on Sunday.
