Targa Tasmania 2008: Day 0 – Temco Prologue Stage

April 15, 2008

Day 0 today, the Prologue stage in George Town. It was the first time all the cars hit a rally stage at competitive speed. There was big field to go through as this year as there is the Tour Group, Rookie Rally and Historic Classes to go through before we get to the main game, the Modern Class.

There was some seriously quick times being laid down. Matt and Casey Close in a 2000 Porsche 911 Turbo (car #913) were the quickest around the 5.17km stage in a time of 03:12.72, over 2 seconds faster than the second place Weeks/Crunkhorn Lamborghini Gallardo (car #991). The Donut King/Just Jap R35 GT-R came in 14th place with a time of 03:22.78.

Tomorrow the event officially starts in Launceston (Entally Stage) before heading to the Northern Loop.
