Kaplan maintains overall lead in Early Modern

Adam Kaplan in a 2004 BMW M3 CSL has maintained his lead after Day 5 in Duttons Garage Early Modern.
Kaplan began the day two minutes and 15 seconds clear of Jon Mitchell in his Subaru S204, and increased the margin by 22 seconds after taking out the opening Strahan stage this morning.

However, Mitchell ensured that it was not going to be one-way traffic today, taking out the Queenstown and Mt Arrowsmith stages, ensuring he remains in touch.

Guy Lilleyman in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX remains third, but over six minutes in arrears.

“We were trading fastest stage times with John Mitchell in the Subaru – in some bits we were a bit quicker and in some bits they were quicker – it’s been good fun,” Kaplan said.

“We’ve got a good lead, but you can never be too confident with Targa Tasmania – it can always throw something up at you.

“Obviously some people are going a bit slower now because they’ve got a bit of a gap.
We came to Targa to have fun and the driving, so there’s no point in driving slowly – we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing and hopefully we’ll get the same result.”

Duttons Garage Early Modern:
1. Adam Kaplan/Aleshia Penney, 2004 BMW M3 CSL
2. Jon Mitchell/Joshua Sutclife, 2006 Subaru S204, + 2m23s
3. Guy Lilleyman/John Lilleyman, 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, +6m34s
