Siddins strengthens lead in Classic GT

With just two days remaining, Jon Siddins looks to have an almost unassailable lead as the margin moves out to beyond six minutes, after another strong performance today.
Siddins produced the fastest times on six of the seven stages, broken only by Michael Bray in his 1975 Holden Torana, who took out the Mt Black stage.

Craig Haysman, in a Triumph TR7 sits in outright second, and is looking forward to tomorrow's penultimate day.

"The long stages suit us, but at the moment we just can’t catch Jon - he’s awesome, and we can’t believe the speed he’s carrying and the way he’s driving - it’s a serious compliment to the car, its prep and the whole crew," Haysman said.

"We just have to keep on chipping away and hopefully Mount Arrowsmith isn’ too wet tomorrow, so we can peg back some time."

Bray holds third place, seven minutes in arrears of Siddins.

Shannons Classic GT:
1. Jon Siddins/Gina Siddins, 1970 Datsun 240Z,
2. Craig Haysman/Julie Boorman, 1979 Triumph TR7 V8, +6m12s
3. Michael Bray / Daniel Bray, 1975 Holden Torana, +7m24s
