Lotus pair take GT Sports

The Country Club GT Sports Trophy is a recent edition to the Targa Tasmania competition, but it is already attracting a loyal following and developing some interesting rivalries.
In 2016, Jeff and Nerida Beable took the honours in their 2000 Nissan Skyline GT-R N1, but this year they had to settle for second place behind the 2017 Lotus Exige of Jeff Morton and Dennis Neagle.

The Morton/Neagle combination were superb in the new Lotus, running out easy winners in the end, 10 minutes and 28 seconds clear of the Beables.

Third last year was also the finishing place this year for Martin and Richard Duursma, who took their 2013 Lotus Exige S onto the final step on the podium, 13 minutes and 56 seconds behind the leaders.

Jeff Morton was thrilled to drive the “great roads” in a “great car“, but after six days traversing the island state was relieved to cross the finish line in Hobart.

“We just went with the same strategy throughout the event, which was to have fun and keep is safe,” Morton said.

“We said this morning before the start of the last day that it would be 100% fun and 0% risk, and that’s the way we’ve driven for the whole event.

“The car’s just been so good and it was the first time on pace notes for me as well, and my first Targa Tasmania – I’m just absolutely loving it.

“I’m keen to come back next year – there’s definitely more in the car and more in me.”
