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.
