Countdown for Targa High Country start

Final course checks have been completed on the eve of Targa High Country conducted around the Victorian alpine region at Mount Buller from November 9 to 11.

It's a cold start at Mt Buller for the ninth running of Targa High Country

A field of over 180 cars have been scrutineered in preparation for the much-anticipated final round of the inaugural CAMS Australian Targa Championship.

Weather conditions have seen chilly conditions in the alps with temperatures below zero overnight that resulted in a light dusting of snow.

There were a few last-minute changes to the entries with Classic GT driver Mick Downey reverting back to his 1979 Holden VB Commodore.

Downey originally entered a 1977 Holden LX Torana.

Downey and co-driver Jarrod Van Den Akker are second in Classic GT standings after three of the four rounds and are third in Classic Outright.

Michael Bray and co-driver Daniel Bray have command of the Classic Outright and Classic GT standings in their 1975 Holden Torana after a copybook season.

However many of the classes are far from resolved going into the weekend which is comprised of almost 270km of competitive distance over 20 special stages.

Lotus Exige man Paul Stokell and co-driver Malcolm Read head the Modern Outright table on 206 points ahead of John Ireland and Janet Binns (171) and Jason and John White (170), both driving Dodge Vipers.

The points distribution will see 70 points for the winner with 63 for second and 59 for third. It continues on a sliding scale with 23 points on offer for 20th position with all other finishers earning 20 points.

 Stay tuned on Targa.com.au for all the latest news across the weekend.
