More of what they said - Day 2

It took a while but we caught up with a few more class-leaders after the running of Day 2 of Targa High Country. Like us, they are looking forward to the final day action.

Liam Howarth on Day 2

EARLY MODERN – LIAM HOWARTH (Nissan Skyline GTR) – Slightly increased a 42 sec gap to 1 min and 15 secs.

Every stage felt good except for the street stage – we think we lost a bit of time there.

Our car was really suited to the longer flowing stages today.

It’s nice to have a good buffer for tomorrow, because we’ll need it.

We’ll have to manage the car in the two long stages.

It’s going to be tough.

I remember last year the tyres and brakes got very hot, so if we can go at eight or nine tenths it will go our way.

Our initial aim was to go hard on the first two days so we can just take it easy on the longer stages tomorrow.

GT4 – PAUL DOWIE (AUDI TTRS) – Almost doubled his lead from 1:16 to 2:07.

I think the big difference this year has been my driving and today just more consolidation of that.

The car’s exactly the same as it was last year.

I had Bernie Webb sitting next to me in Targa Tasmania earlier this year and I picked up some great pointers.

It’s taken some time to iron out the old habits from driving in an Evo 7, compared to the Audi and it’s made a lot of difference.

My stage times compared to last year have been amazing, including 25 seconds quicker up Mount Buller yesterday than I’ve ever been.
