Ullrich dominates Day 3 in Shannons Classic

Peter Ullrich, in his 1963 Jensen CV8, has extended his lead in Shannons Classic, following Day 3 of Targa Tasmania.
Peter Ullrich has a commanding lead.
After starting the day one minute and 40 seconds clear of Richard Woodward in a Holden Monaro, Ullrich has increased the margin to over four minutes, to be in a commanding position at the half way mark of this year's event.

Ullrich dominated the 38.06km Cethana stage, finishing a whopping 53 seconds clear of his nearest rival.

Even though Ullrich has a big lead, he is not celebrating just yet.

“It’s never comfortable, especially in these old cars – if you start to have an issue, you have to slow down a little bit and it’s amazing how fast two minutes goes away.

“The car’s been prepped beautifully and it’s been really solid, so we’ve been able to maintain a good pace all week, rather than come on strong on the last day.”

David Gilliver currently sits in third place, more than five minutes behind Ullrich.

Shannons Classic:
1.    Peter Ullrich/Sari Ullrich, 1963 Jensen CV8
2.    Richard Woodward/Neil Gibson, 1969 Holden Monaro, +4m25s
3.    David Gilliver/Nigel Shellshear, 1979 Ferrari 308 GTB, +5m21s
