1.03pm: Jason White will assess his chances in the Australian Targa Championship tonight, with his main rivals, Dean Herridge, Kevin Weeks and others, still in the running for a top placing.

"We have to look at who is still running, and we if kept on soldiering away in the hope that they don't finish, it would be about the only way we could salvage the championship. We'll work it out tonight and make a decision," White said. 

1.00pm: Quote from Jason White:

"We had to straddle a great big boulder in The Sideling, and rather than tear a wheel off the car it's managed to roll its way down the car and puncture everything from oil coolers to oil pipes and even the bottom of the engine," White said.

"We've got it all patched up, but we seem to have run out of late time by just a few minutes, so it's a 20 minute penalty, so that's about the end of us, unfortunately.

"We wouldn't protest something like this, it's in the rules and it's a pretty standard thing. It took us 17 minutes to fix it, and we only have 15 minutes of Late Time, so the rules are pretty clear cut and fair for everyone. When a rule has to be enforced it has to be enforced. It would be nice if it wasn't the case, but it is."


A wodge of knead it and she's back on the tarmac! These modern lambos are pretty easy and cheap  to repair.

The old 308 was whistling along very well indeed, until it had a hard landing and has cracked the engine sump.

Having already missed several stages, it can be patched up and finish, but is essentially, unclassified.

Bugger....  :(

Or at least the daily highlights...

I recall some summary doco in prior years but this light on content and screens some 2 weeks after the event.

Looks like Quinn has it in the bag with Nissan reliability in his GTR
Looking at the unclassified results the top 5 cars are all Japanese riceburners. 4 R35 GTRs in the Top 10
Back to the spaghetti factory for Luigi :)

Obviously (seriously)I am biased as we have supplied techology for many of these GTRS :)
Still some interesting results over the past few days

So what you mean is, if you take a bunch of rice burners, re-build and re-invent, and modify almost beyond recognition, you can do ok?




















But your cars still ugly... how do you fix THAT??

The Italiano way -

Fix It Again Tony!

Great to see a Scooby Doo come in second place too. Attractive clean lines and perky good looks that could have come straight from Michelottis finest renderings :)

On the subject of stock, the GTRs in the event are scary stock. They dont run air shifted Holingers et al Lambo style, instead they run all factory bits. Very good pieces of kit those things. Really though until Magnum PI drives an EVO or something I will never have a point here :(
