The battle for the top two CAMS Australian Targa Championship driver’s titles is taking shape after the running of Targa Great Barrier Reef, the third round in the four-round series.

In the Modern category, Paul Stokell has established a 36-point lead over Jason White going into the final round, Targa High Country, which will be held at Mt Buller in Victoria from November 9 to 11.

While White has taken the last two wins and gathered 170 points, he did not finish the opening round, Targa North West, and is now scrambling to gather enough points to move into the lead. 

Stokell, sitting on 206 points, has been Mr Consistency, gathering big points in each round despite victory eluding him. He knows that as long as he gets safely around the North-East Victorian course in November, the title will be his.

John Ireland, with 168 points, sits in third place in modern, just two points behind White. The early series leader, Steve Glenney, sat in the co-driver’s seat in the Cairns event, meaning he remains with the 160 points he gathered from a win and a second from the opening two rounds.

In the Classic title, Michael Bray is looking almost home, sitting on 240 points from Peter Gluskie on 187 points. While there will be 70 points on offer at High Country, Gluskie will have to win and Bray not finish for an upset to occur.

Bray has taken maximum points in all three rounds, showing plenty of class in his 1975 Holden Torana.

Mick Downey has 146 points and Ted Banks 135, to round out the top four in Classic.
