Morton stretches lead in GT Sports Trophy

Jeff Morton, in his Lotus Exige, almost doubled his overall lead in Country Club GT Sports Trophy class on Day 5 of Targa Tasmania.
Morton took out five of today's six stages, with Jeff Beable taking out the Queenstown stage from Morton by just one second.

Beable, driving a Nissan Skyline now sits in second place overall, with Martin Duursma in a 2013 Lotus Exige now third, but a further three minutes back from Beable.

“We had a really good run through Mount Arrowsmith – it was wet, but I’m just starting to now get a feel for how the car drives in the wet,” Morton said.

“Queenstown was an absolute hoot up the hill – I threw the car around a little bit there and had a ball.

“I’m just trying to enjoy it without taking any risks. I’ve been enjoying the drier conditions this afternoon as well. I love the dry because I’m more familiar with it, but whatever tomorrow brings, we’re ready for it.

“Am I going to back off tomorrow? No way – I’m enjoying myself too much. We’re having so much fun and just enjoying ourselves – we’re enjoying the amazing roads, we’re in a great car, and everything’s as good as it could be right now.”

Country Club GT Sports Trophy:
1. Jeff Morton/Dennis Neagle, 2017 Lotus Exige
2. Jeff Beable/Nerida Beable, 2000 Nissan Skyline, +8m04s
