Kennard’s the man in GT4

Nissan GTR driver Angus Kennard and co-driver Ian Wheeler have extended their RDA Brakes GT4 lead by over three and a half minutes over the six stages of day five.
They now lead the similar Nissan of Josh Hilton and Rodney Vanderpoel by 6m31s with just one day and six stages still to run.

“With the lead we’ve got we can pretty much relax tomorrow and take it a little bit easier,” Kennard admitted.

“It’s not going to be wet, so we’re going to try and de-risk our drive tomorrow. We didn’t go flat out today and it probably felt faster than it really was.”
Launceston Subaru dealer, Crichton Lewis, with co-driver Adam Kudra, made up considerable ground on day five and now have their WRX STI just 23 seconds behind Hilton.

Lewis will still be targeting second place when he leaves Hobart on Saturday morning.

Barrie and Jan Smith continued their solid week and sit in fourth place in their Audi TT RS, 24 seconds ahead of the similar vehicle of Max Williams and Bruce Bush.

Early leaders Ben Manion and Bernie Webb (Subaru) are back in seventh place after their puncture earlier in the week cost them any chance of a podium finish.
