TSD a hot contest

In one of the most keenly fought and competitive sections of this year’s Targa, Alan & Heather Gluyas have taken out the title in their 2012 Toyota 86 GTS.
A strong performance sees Alan & Heather Gluyas victorious in TSD
Little separated the top three heading into the penultimate day, but team Gluyas from Kettering in Tasmania’s south, made their move on Day 5.  

The 51.37km Mt Arrowsmith stage being the decisive factor with Gluyas losing just 12 points. “We had a very slow start to the stage and didn’t make up our average and dropped 12 points for the stage, but everybody else dropped a lot more”.

Heading into the final day, Gluyas was quietly confident. “I actually live in between two of the stages, and know the others really well, so I’m hopeful we’ll do really well”.

Gluyas’s experience proved to be the case and he was able to hold off his nearest rival

“We had a great event and only made three mistakes, which cost us significant points”.

“There’s always room for improvement, but to be successful in this class you have to have a reasonably fast car, a competent driver and a really good navigator, which I had”.

Jordan & Debbie Bridge from South Australia, driving a Subaru WRX STI crossed the line in second place, with Victorian’s Brian & Justin Marshall third in a Volkswagen Polo GTI.
