Regular pair assisting others

A regular combination at Targa and other rally events over a long period of time has been the pairing of Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb. With Steve behind the wheel and Bernie calling the notes, they have experienced great success over the years.
Jason Whitburn and Bernie Webb
But at this year’s Targa High Country, they are helping others. Bernie is sitting alongside West Australian Jason Whitburn in a 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 competing in Early Modern. Glenney has swapped sides and is also sitting in the co-driver’s seat, assisting Eddie Maguire, and they are looking for a Targa win in Modern.

After day one of competition, which took the field from Mt Buller out to Euroa and back to the mountain, it was a successful day for both of the old combination.

Whitburn and Webb have a handy 17-second lead in Early Modern while Maguire and Glenney head Modern by 27 seconds.

It will be fascinating to watch how these two cars progress across the final two days of action. But if experience in the co-driver’s seats counts for anything, you would think the podium beckons for both.

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.
