Marshall still in front in TSD Trophy

The Ford Falcon Ute pairing of Darryl and Andrew Marshall have maintained their dominance of the TSD Trophy on day three of Targa Tasmania.

The pair finished the day 34 points clear of Chris Waldock and Peter Lucas, who also maintained their places on the podium during a tough third day of competition.

 

Both Marshall and Waldock have both had only minimal penalties through the day’s seven stages, as crews really got into the swing of the average speed competition.

 

“We’ve had a real good run today. We did a bit of homework last night, looking at old videos and getting a few markers right,” Marshall said.

 

“The changes we made to the car before the event, but didn’t get a chance to try out, have been worth it.

 

“The car is absolutely awesome, so all the money spent, was spent in a good way.

It’s heaps better than last year, it’s handling a lot better and it’s pulling out of the corners better.

 

“We’ve got more control and better feel through the pedals.”

 

A tighter battle exists for fourth and fifth, with Steve Brumby’s Alfa Romeo just 29 clear of Glenn Ridge’s Mazda, with John Culvenor (Lotus Elise) still well in the running for a top five position.
