Marshalls on track for TSD Trophy glory

TSD Trophy leaders Darryl and Peter Marshall had an early scare in their push for TSD Trophy honours, but have recovered well to lead the competition by 92 at the end of day five.
They dropped an uncharacteristic 18 points on the long Mt Arrowsmith stage, but quickly bounced back, cleaning the next stage in their Ford Falcon Ute and getting their campaign back on track.

Chris Waldock’s Jaguar and Peter Lucas’ Porsche (in second and third places) were the only competitors to clean the long 53km stage, but Waldock then dropped 17 points on the short Tarraleah stage, handing the advantage back to Marshall.

However, a brilliant afternoon from Lucas means the gap between second and third is now only four points heading into the final day.

Fourth and fifth places remain unchanged after day five, with Steve Brumby (Alfa) and Adrian Wilson (BMW) separated by 44 points.

Glenn and Oliver Ridge are sixth and are still in with a chance of putting their Mazda MX5 into the top five, being just four points behind Wilson.

Positions seven to 10 are held down by John Culvenor/Barrie Fitchett (Lotus), Michael and Kate Rider (Lotus), Darren and Sarah Wells (Subaru) and Peter Landan and Warwick Thomas in their Audi A3.

Jim and Evan Kelly bring up the rear, and 11th place, in their Audi RS6.

“We lost a few points today, but we’re still working on that three points a stage average for the event, and we’re still well ahead of that,” Marshall said.

“You can have hiccups and you can have good stages. We had a bit of a brain fade in the cabin – we missed one of our markers and mis-read it and went too quick.

“We’d never seen the Molesworth stage before today and to get as close as we did without having ever seen the stage, we’re pretty happy with that.”

Young navigator to take on the field in Targa High Country rally this November


At 14 years of age, Heather Brumby will most likely be one of the youngest ever people to contest a competitive category of a Targa Australia event. 

The Year Nine MacKillop College student from Wattle Flat, north of Bathurst will be navigating her father’s 1999 Alfa Romeo GTV in November’s Targa High Country, which is conducted in and around the Victorian ski resort town of Mt Buller.
