Showroom – Jim scores another trophy

In Showroom class, Day 2 ended with the margin between Neill Ford and Jim Richards at 10 seconds, but within 600 metres of the start line on Day 3 everything had changed – Ford had a moment, lost 46 seconds on the stage and suddenly Richards had clean air out in front.

The Porsche veteran took another eight seconds off Ford on TS16 and was suddenly out to a 44 second lead.

Richards and Ford completed the long Big River stage in the same time.

Ford was back on the job on TS18, taking two seconds from his rival, but found himself 42 seconds behind the master at lunch on day three.

Tristan Stirling-Cameron remained in third place, three minutes from the leader, but another three minutes clear of the fourth placed James Hallet.

Ford remained determined, taking nine seconds from Richards on the first stage after lunch, the 10.42 Skyline stage. Then again on TS20, it was another 10 seconds made up and with two stages to go the margin was back to 23 seconds.

More time was taken off Richards on TS21, Mt Terrible, leaving Ford 14 seconds behind with just Mt Buller to go.

The ask was too big, and Richards won by 11 seconds, putting another Targa trophy into a packed trophy cabinet.
