Back-to-back TSD wins for Marshall

Brothers Darryl and Peter Marshall have completely dominated the TSD Trophy competition at Targa Tasmania, winning the 2017 event by a margin on 106 points.

Driving a Ford Falcon Ute Pursuit 250, the Marshalls led from the very first stage, and although they relinquished the lead on stages three and four, they were never headed after that.

 

It was a masterful display from the 2016 TSD winners, and gives them back-to-back Targa titles.

 

“We would never have dreamed we could win by more than 100 points. To lead the event from stage one all the way to the finish and to do what we did, we would have thought impossible,” Marshall said.

 

“We budgeted to lose three points a stage and we’ve broken par every day.

 

“To go back to back this year is a culmination of all the work over the past three years. My brother Peter was with me this year.”

 

Christopher Waldock and Christine Kelly finished in equal second place in their 2016 Jaguar F-Type SVR AWD. Despite taking the lead early on day one, they soon fell to second and could never make up the lost ground on the Marshalls.

 

Peter Lucas and Angela Coradine came home with a wet sail in their 1984 Porsche Carrera to take equal second, and while never challenging for the win, they come away from the event pleased with a strong drive over the six days of competition.

 

The TSD Trophy is a real game of cat and mouse, with drivers needing to balance their speed against the always ticking clock. Competitors must achieve a set average speed on each stage, while adhering to a 130km/h speed limit.  Penalties apply for going over or under the that.


 Adrian Wilson and Quang Tran in a 2014 BMW M4 finished the event in fourth place debut.

 

 

Media personality Glenn Ridge took sixth place with his son, Oliver, in the navigator’s seat, in their new 2017 Mazda MX-5 RFGT.
