    Just had a quick look for reference - YT's time this year at Hellyer Gorge was identical to what he ran last year in the Lambo Super Alphabet.

    These new cars must be mental out of the box.

      yeah, and obviously enjoying every minute of it instead of taking it all too seriously. Good to see!

        We are out of the event with a failed engine, dropped cylinders and became a big oil pump. We set some killer times this week, picked up some new records, but that's Targa Tas 2016 over.
        Get on board our sister car with Mike Pritchard at the wheel, going for the win in GT2 class and outright!

          ^^^^^ What a bugger. Was an amazing battle in GT2. Close should be cruising to the finish from here given he now has almost 9 mins over the field.

                That's what I had heard. Fkn long stage. Mental fatigue would be high.

                Edit: seems it just let go.

                  YT said he accidently gave it an over rev on the previous stage and thinks that may have been where the damage was done

                    No shortage of last day dramas. A combination of some slightly damp roads and I guess fatigue had a couple of cars roll. (Porsche turbo and the Norton WRX). Alternator in Roes evo let go on the second last stage leaving them parked up. Cpt Close managed his lead well and avoided any last day dramas taking the outright win. This event never fails to deliver highs and lows.

                          What were all the exotic <100 numbered cars? They don't get a mention anywhere on the Targa website.
                          Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

                            That's the Targa Tour and Historic Rallye. You get to drive all of the Targa stages after the road is closed but you're restricted to 130 km/hr. You drive it in convoy and every car carries a GPS tracker (Rallysafe system) so you'll get fined or excluded if you speed. There's no requirement for rollcages, helmets etc. No times are kept and it's not competitive in any way.

                            The best way of describing it is that it's sort of like a dawn run that you may have done in your younger days before speed cameras. You drive quickly but don't really take any risks.

                            I just got back from doing it. I was working with BMW and spent most of the week in an i8. I also had a steer of the M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, as well as a very cool M3 CSL.

                            Porsche Australia organised a group of 60 cars. They charged around $8k and all 60 places sold out in three days. The customers turned up in Melbourne with their cars, and Porsche organised the rest (ferry trip, accommodation, meals etc).
                            Can I wear the Scream mask? The mask from Scream... when I do you from behind...

                              Ah yes. I saw a book face pic involving a failed tyre on second last stage ? Fk me. Sounds like another brush with "stealing defeat from the jaws of victory" for the Captain. Glad to see you got it sorted and got it home. Must have been a very nervous time.
