Team Siddins continue to lead in Classic GT

Jon and Gina Siddins continue to dominate Shannons Classic GT, holding an overall lead of just over one and a half minutes from Mick Downey in his Holden Torana.
The current standings are even surprising Siddins himself.

“I’m amazed we’re going as well as we are,” Siddins said.
 
“The tyres today have been excellent - there’s plenty of grip in the Dunlops and the engine is great, so we’ve got a really good package, and Gina has been on fire; she's going really good," he added.

Craig Haysman in a Triumph TR7 had an excellent day over the seven stages, climbing from fifth overnight, to now be sitting in third place.

Shannons Classic GT:
1. Jon Siddins/Gina Siddins, 1970 Datsun 240Z,
2. Mick Downey/Jarrod Van Den Akker, 1977 Holden Torana, +1m36s
3. Craig Haysman/Julie Boorman, 1979 Triumph TR7 V8, +3m28s
