Beables well clear in GT Sports Trophy

Jeff and Nerida Beable have finished Day 3 of Targa Tasmania with a 3 minute and 59 second lead in the Budget GT Sports Trophy competition.

Jeff and Nerida Beable have finished Day 3 of Targa Tasmania with a 3 minute and 59 second lead in the Budget GT Sports Trophy competition.

Once again they were the class of the field as they extended their advantage throughout another fine and sunny day in Tasmania.

The Nissan Skyline GTR crew won every stage of the day in another impressive performance.

“The competition seems to be a bit tougher this year,” Beable said.

“I know it’s very tight behind me with only a few seconds separating the next four cars.

“We’re not going flat out yet – if the cars behind us went harder we could amp it up a bit, I suppose, but for now, we don’t need to, as we’ve got a nice buffer.

“The front brakes are wearing out a bit, but they’ll last.”

Jordan and Debbie Bridge were the next best in their Subaru WRX STi, ahead of Martin Duursma and Richard Wodhams in their Lotus Exige.

Cristian Downing and Clayton Webber are fourth in a Subaru WRX, with fifth place being held by Adam Gosling and Ian Noble in their BMW 130i.

A podium place may have slipped by the wayside for Rob Oshlack and Neysa Ellison after they dropped to seventh place in their Ford Focus after problems.

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!
