Siddins strengthens lead in Classic GT

On the penultimate day of Targa Tasmania, Jon Siddins has ensured he will enter the final day with a huge buffer over his rivals, following another dominant display in Shannons Classic GT.
Siddins, in his 1970 Datsun 240Z, won five of the six stages today, and recorded equal fastest on Tarraleah with Craig Haysman in a Triumph TR7.

Even with a minor hiccup this morning, Siddins is feeling relaxed ahead of tomorrow's final day.

“I’ve been cruising today – we had a little issue with a diff bolt breaking on the first stage at Strahan this morning, so I had to nurse it through to the lunch stop at New Norfolk,” Siddins said.

“We fixed that, so now we’re just going to cruise home – I think everyone’s cruising. We’re all happy to be in the positions we’re in, I think.”

Siddins, who has led since the opening day, will take an overall lead of just under eight minutes into tomorrow's final six stages, with Craig Haysman second, and Michael Bray holding third position.

Shannons Classic GT:
1. Jon Siddins/Gina Siddins, 1970 Datsun 240Z,
2. Craig Haysman/Julie Boorman, 1979 Triumph TR7 V8, +7m41s
3. Michael Bray / Daniel Bray, 1975 Holden Torana, +10m06s
