Glenney and Bray off to the Perfect Start

See all the footage of your car from Targa North West 2018 as captured for Channel Nine TV show.

The 2018 CAMS Australian Targa Championship is set to be a thrilling affair following a highly successful opening round at last weekend’s Targa North West.

Two overall championships are up for grabs in 2018, with the CAMS Australian Targa Championship, which covers Early Modern, GT2 and GT4, as well as the CAMS Australian Targa Classic Championship for Classic and Classic GT.

Tasmanian Steve Glenney and co-driver Andy Sarandis from South Australia, have made the perfect start to their championship campaign, after taking outright honours at last weekend’s Targa North West in their 2015 Subaru WRX Sti.

Run over two days for the first time in the event’s history, Glenney leads the way overall from Queensland’s Paul Stokell, driving a 2014 Lotus Exige, with Targa veteran Tony Quinn in a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo rounding out the top three.

Glenney was thrilled with the performance of his car across the weekend, as well as gaining the maximum points, although mindful that one of his major threats, Jason and John White in their Dodge Viper ACR, struck mechanical issues on the opening day which put them out of contention.

In the Classic Championship, Michael and Daniel Bray in a 1975 Holden Torana lead the championship after the opening event, with Nik Prieston and Dylan Braithwaite from NSW, who had a superb weekend in their 1976 Fiat Abarth 131 Rallye second. Victorian team Peter Gluskie and Samantha Winter in a 1985 BMW E30 325i currently sit in third place.

Standings after round one provide a true indication of the diversity of competitive cars, with six different makes occupying the top three places in each of the two categories.

Attention now turns to round two, the iconic Targa Tasmania, to be run from 16th – 21st April, and one team who will be striving to climb the leaderboard, will be six-time champions Jason and John White following their mechanical issues at Targa North West.

Following Targa Tasmania, the final two rounds will comprise of a brand-new event, Targa Great Barrier Reef, to be run from 31st August – 2nd September, then the final round at Targa High Country from 9th – 11th November.
