Siddins has victory in sight

Jon and Gina Siddins will take a five minute lead into the final day of Targa Tasmania, after a consolidating day in their 1970 Datsun 240Z.

Jon and Gina Siddins will take a five minute lead into the final day of Targa Tasmania, after a consolidating day in their 1970 Datsun 240Z.

Beginning the day five minutes and nine seconds clear of Keith and Mary Callinan in a 1977 Ford RS 1800, Siddins maintained that lead throughout Day 5, eventually extending the margin by a further 11 seconds.

“We’ve got a big lead so we’re not going hard, but it’s hard to drive slower and listen to all the rattles and bangs which have been happening,” Siddins said.

“I’m not game to launch it in case I do something silly, so I’m just saving the tyres and everything so we make it home to the finish.”

Mick Downey, driving a 1977 Holden Torana, moved up two places today into third position.

Downey holds a slender 20 second lead over fourth placed Barry Faux in a 1985 Mazda RX-7, which will make for fabulous viewing for spectators as they battle for a podium place in Shannons Classic GT.  

Shannons Classic GT:
1. Jon Siddins/Gina Siddins, 1970 Datsun 240Z,
2. Keith Callinan/Mary Anne Callinan, 1977 Ford RS 1800, + 5m20s 
3. Mick Downey/Jarrod Van Den Akker, 1977 Holden Torana, +5m41s
