Alan Roe and Michael Lloyd have suffered the ultimate heartbreak, retiring from Targa Tasmania on the 37th of 38 stages.

Alan Roe and Michael Lloyd (pictured) have suffered the ultimate heartbreak, retiring from Targa Tasmania on the 37th of 38 stages.

This gave victory in the Spirit of Tasmania and Duttons Garage Early Modern class to Andrew Bollom in a 1995 Mazda RX-7 SP.

Mark Balcombe was second in a similar Mazda RX7, with Stephen Thatcher and Kelly Handley third in a Nissan.

“It’s been a great tussle all week and it’s been up and down. We led for a while on Day Two, but we’ve had some great battles right throughout the week,” Bollom said.

“There’s a great variety of cars in this category and they all have their weaknesses and strengths, so it’s made for one of the great races in this class.

“We came down here looking for a position in class, so to come away with a category win is just awesome.”

Fourth place went to Robert Balint and Peer Lance in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6.5, with the top five rounded out by Peter Roberts and Suzanne Atkins in a Nissan Skyline.
