Adelaide surgeon, Roger Paterson, sits 23 seconds on top of the Classic Outright leader board in his 1974 Porsche 911, after he made use of soft compound tyres in the wet and slippery conditions.



Fellow South Australians, Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) and Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000), in second and third places.



Paterson won six stages as his Porsche was clearly the better car in the wet and slippery conditions, although Haysman limited the damage with equal quickest time on the day's final stage.



"We've had an enjoyable day. The car hasn't put a foot wrong, but the driver was a bit of a problem," Paterson said jokingly.



"We set out to be leading after the first day, but we didn't have expectations as such. The aim was to try to win this event, and to do that we had to be ahead after day one.



"The conditions suited us better today because we're running soft tyres all round, but I think that might be different on the drier days and we'll see who's made the better choice.”



Simon Hoff was the surprise packet of the day and is third in his Escort, a minute from the lead, but 45 seconds clear of fourth placed Peter Ullrich in his Jensen CV8.



Paterson also leads the Late Classic Handicap ahead of Hoff, while Ullrich is 38 seconds in front of Andrew Bryson (Hillman Imp) in Early Classic Handicap.

The battle for Showroom honours has been intense on the opening day at Targa Adelaide, with just seconds separating the major contenders in both the 2WD and 4WD classes

Image

Flood's Evo mastered the wet


In the Mitsubishi versus Subaru contest, the opening honours have gone to the Lancer Evo driven by local hope Michael Flood, who holds a six second buffer over the WRX of Tasmanian Ben Newman.



In 2WD Showroom, the difference between the two Renaults is nearly as close, with Adam Spence just eight seconds clear of his team mate, Bunjamin Noor, from Indonesia.



Flood arrived back at the Showgrounds at the end of the opening eight stages and was thrilled to be in the lead in only his second Targa event.



“We’re stoked to be in the lead after day one, but we’re well aware that there are three days to go,” he said.



“It’s nice to see the Australian Motors team in front of the Subaru.



“We’ll just have to see how it goes. We’re rookies as well, its only our second event, the first was here last year.



“We finished second then, but that was a much weaker field and all the good guys have come across this year in 4WD.



“We’ve done a lot of work with Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb in the last six months. They have taught us how to go quick and not to be affected by what’s going on around us.



“They have been working with us and mentoring us, and that has really paid off. Our speed has increased, we’ve really stepped it up. We’ve made a big leap to get an edge on the competition.



“But we’re not getting ahead of ourselves with three days to go.”



In Showroom Sports, Glyn Crimp had a clean run in his BMW 1 Series M.

With two days of the event still to come, Adelaide’s Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) leads fellow local Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000) by 24 seconds in the Classic Outright competition.


With two days of the event still to come, Adelaide’s Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) leads fellow local Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000) by 24 seconds in the Classic Outright competition, after overnight leader, Roger Paterson (1974 Porsche 911) crashed out on the opening stage of the day.

That gave the lead to last year’s winner, Craig Haysman, who then battled hard with one of the surprises of the event, Simon Hoff in his Ford Escort RS2000.

In conditions that seemed to suit Hoff’s nimble Escort more, Haysman had to use every ounce of his ability, and the Triumph’s V8 power, just to stay ahead of his rival. He finished the day 24 seconds clear.

“It was very wet this morning with rivers across the road, and I was really surprised that Roger (Paterson) went off,” Haysman said.

“The roads are drying, but we’ve still got to push because that little Escort (Hoff) is flying through the hills. It’s just amazing what he’s doing – it’s really cool to see.

“The roads have been really greasy and slimy through the trees, but if it clears tomorrow our car’s horsepower will just kick in and it will be cool.

“We’ve had no problems with the car, so we’ve just been trying to preserve things today and get ready for tomorrow.”

Hoff's strong performance sees him at the head of the Late Classic Handicap leaderboard, a minute and 20 seconds clear of Bruce Power's Mazda RX7, with the pretty Ferrari of Robert Gambino a further minute back in third.

The consistent Peter Ullrich has his 1963 Jensen CV8 almost a minute clear in Early Classic Handicap, 53 seconds ahead of Andrew Bryson's 1964 Hillman Imp. Jack Waldron's 58 year old 1955 Fiat Abarth 750 is third.

South Australian Steve Glenney has driven brilliantly over the slippery stages on day two of Targa Adelaide, extending his lead to one minute and three seconds in his 2009 Nissan GT-R.

Glenney masters the wet

In treacherous conditions in the Adelaide Hills, Glenney was too fast for his rivals, with reigning event champion, Jason White (Lamborghini Gallardo), the next best in second, and Matthew Rickards (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) third another 53 seconds back.



With two days of the event still to come, Adelaide’s Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) leads fellow local Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000) by 24 seconds in the Classic Outright competition, after overnight leader, Roger Paterson (1974 Porsche 911) crashed out on the opening stage of the day.



Day two of Targa Adelaide was the longest of the event with 72.05 kilometres of competitive driving over eight closed road stages. The day started with the tricky Montacute test, and included two runs up and over Mt Lofty.



Glenney and co-driver, Bernie Webb, started the day with an 18 second advantage and were determined to increase that advantage over White’s Lamborghini, the winner in Adelaide last year.



With his Nissan GT-R on song, Glenney was able to win six of the day’s eight stages, and finished the day with a lead of over a minute.



“It’s been an interesting tussle. Conditions this morning were just treacherous – there’s was water running across the road everywhere and it was basically just survival out there,” Glenney said.



“We really had to concentrate hard this morning to make sure we had the correct line around every corner – it was absolutely hard work.



“The car was slipping and sliding around all over the place, but we stuck to our plan of one corner at a time and being disciplined to stay on the pacenotes and it worked, so we’re rapt with the lead we’ve got at the moment.”



White was disappointed to have dropped so much time during the day, but said the conditions were tough.



“This morning was definitely the worse and most unpredictable conditions I’ve ever had to face. It certainly kept us on our toes,” White said.



Tasmanian Matt Rickards moved up to third place in his Lancer Evolution, at the expense of Tony Quinn and his Nissan GT-R. Quinn had been as high as second, but dropped to fourth late in the day.



Adelaide surgeon, Roger Paterson, held the lead in Classic Outright heading into the day, but his joy was short lived when he crashed his Porsche on the very first stage of the day.



That gave the lead to last year’s winner, Craig Haysman, who then battled hard with one of the surprises of the event, Simon Hoff in his Ford Escort RS2000.



In conditions that seemed to suit Hoff’s nimble Escort more, Haysman had to use every ounce of his ability, and the Triumph’s V8 power, just to stay ahead of his rival. He finished the day 24 seconds clear.



“It was very wet this morning with rivers across the road, and I was really surprised that Roger (Paterson) went off,” Haysman said.



“The roads are drying, but we’ve still got to push because that little Escort (Hoff) is flying through the hills. It’s just amazing what he’s doing – it’s really cool to see.



“The roads have been really greasy and slimy through the trees, but if it clears tomorrow our car’s horsepower will just kick in and it will be cool.



“We’ve had no problems with the car, so we’ve just been trying to preserve things today and get ready for tomorrow.”



Jai Raymond is in a tight battle for third in Classics, with the 1979 Rover driver just ahead of Peter Ullrich (1963 Jensen) and Glenn Dean’s 1973 Ford Escort.



Local drivers continue to put in strong performances, with Tim Possingham a clear leader in Early Modern, and Scott Limbert (Nissan GT-R) and Andy Sarandis (Toyota Corolla) winning the Modern and Classic Rookie Rallye respectively, which finished today.



In Showroom 4WD, Stewart Liddle (Mitsubishi) has a four second lead over Ben Newman (Subaru), and Adam Spence heads a Renault 1-2 in Showroom 2WD. It the tightly controlled Regularity competition, the lead is held by the Ford FPV GT of Colin and Wade Zytveld.



The third day of Targa Adelaide once again heads into the hills surrounding the South Australian capital for a further eight competitive stages, and with further showers predicted, conditions will again be tricky for drivers.

The Showroom 2WD competition has once again been dominated by Adam Spence, who holds a lead of nearly 15 minutes.

His Renault Megane RS 265 has dominated the day, with his team-mate, Indonesian Bunjamin Noor in second place.

“We’re really happy with the lead we’ve got, but today’s conditions on the first two stages were like nothing I’ve ever driven in before,” Spence said.

“It was pretty scary to be honest, but we made a few changes to the suspension set-up for today and I’m much happier in the car.

“We’ve got a big lead, but we both just want to get to the end and improve the car for the coming events when, hopefully, we’ve got a bit more competition.

“Hopefully tomorrow and Sunday will be dry, and we can learn more about the new car.”

He powered his Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo N1 across the eight stages of the day to head Robert Balint (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI) and Andre Lukasz in a Nissan 200 SX.

“We were a bit sketchy this morning on the Montacute stage, with rivers of water running down the road and the car aquaplaning everywhere, so we literally just survived on that stage,” Possingham said.

“As the day progressed we got back in the groove and made good time on every stage.

“We gave the car a wheel alignment last night and it was far better today, so with a good lead we’re literally just driving as slow as we can to get to the finish now.”

24-Aug-2013
The battle for Showroom 4WD continued across the penultimate day of this Targa Adelaide, with just seconds separating the top two competitors for most of the day.

Image


Liddle was the early leader before crashing out

Stewart Liddle started the day in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X with a four second buffer over his Subaru rival, Ben Newman.

But on the day’s opening stage, TS17 Castambul, Newman and co-driver Crichton Lewis, reversed that position, winning the stage by eight seconds.

From there on it was a tight tussle. Liddle won TS18 by two seconds, they tied TS19, before Newman took his WRX two seconds quicker over Corkscrew (TS20).

Again on Teringie, the 8.79 kilometre test of driver and car, Newman was again quicker, but just by a second. Come the next stage it was Liddle’s turn to set the pace, but his victory only clawed back one second - Newman again by four.

But then disaster struck for Liddle, rolling his Lancer on the Stirling stage, TS 23, the day’s penultimate test. Suddenly the battle was over.

Sitting in second place now is Clinton Arentz. He was consistent in his 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, but at one minute 32 seconds back he will need Newman to have trouble to move up the list.

Michael Flood is in third, and Ralph Norton fourth, to round out the top four with a day to go.

In Showroom class, Adam Spence and Erin Kelly continued to dominate, with their lead out to a massive 18 minutes 53 seconds.

The Renault Megane RS 265 mounted duo have a virtually unassailable lead over their team-mates, Bunjamin Noor and Lee Challoner-Miles, also in a Renault.

Although he's the only competitor in the Showroom Sports category, Glyn Crimp, together with co-driver Paul van der Mey, has continued to set competitive stage times.

His BMW 1 Series M has proven reliable over the opening 24 stages and is on track for maximum series points.

Overnight leader Steve Glenney has increased his lead on day three of Targa Adelaide, putting his Nissan GT-R in the perfect position to win the demanding 28 stage event.

Image

Glenney and Webb looking good with one day to go
The Adelaide Hills rally ace now leads reigning modern champion, Lamborghini Gallardo driver Jason White, by one minute and 25 seconds, with Queenslander Tony Quinn third in his Nissan GT-R.

Craig Haysman is well clear in the Classic Outright competition, as his 1981 Triumph TR7 V8 made good use of the drying conditions.

Day three of Targa Adelaide, round one of the CAMS Australian Targa Championship, was held over eight tarmac stages and competitive distance of 63.44 kilometres, with a lunch break in the pretty township of Stirling.

Modern competition leader, Steve Glenney, set the pace on day two’s treacherous conditions in the Adelaide Hills, and was able to increase that margin on day three. White was unable to make any impact after his Lamborghini suffered front differential failure, and the man who has won six of his past seven starts looks destined to finish second this time.

“Things are going well, and it’s nice to have a bit of a buffer,” Glenney said.
“Conditions are still pretty tricky. The roads are drying up, but there’s still little rivers of water to catch you out so you have to stay on your game.

“I think from here we can manage the lead, although you never count your chickens until you’re home, but hopefully we’ll have no dramas and we can bring it home.

“We’re getting a good feel for the car in the dry now, and working on the dry handling for the next couple of events, so everything’s going sweet.”

The battle for third see-sawed all day, with Adelaide’s Matt Rickards swapping places with Tony Quinn (Nissan GT-R) throughout the day. The two were locked together until the final stage, where Quinn pulled ahead to take a one second buffer into the final day.

Tasmanian Jamie Vandenberg, driving a borrowed Nissan GT-R, lies in fifth place.

After leading by just 24 seconds overnight, Craig Haysman used the extra power of his Triumph TR7 V8 to good advantage in the drier conditions, extending his margin to two minutes and two seconds.

Try as he may, the more nimble Ford Escort of Simon Hoff couldn’t keep up with the flying TR7, but he remains in a clear second place, nearly four minutes ahead of third placed Jai Raymond in a Rover SD 1.

“The day’s been fantastic for us, and it’s all going to plan,” Haysman said.

“We knew it was going to be raining on the first couple of days and then dry out, but that Escort must be flying! I’m just blown away how quick he’s steering that thing and it’s very impressive.

“The power of the V8 has been a real advantage today, and we’re slowly building the lead up, so we just need to consolidate now.

Adelaide's Tim Possingham seems almost certain to claim the Early Modern win, while Subaru driver Ben Newman heads the Showroom 4WD class in his Subaru WRX. Adam Spence is well clear in Showroom, and Toby Gill’s Holden HSV Maloo is the leader in the Modern Muscle Car class.

The fourth and final day of Targa Adelaide again heads into the hills west of the state capital for four stages, including the famous Gorge Road test.

Competitors will cross the finish line in The Parade in Norwood, from around 12:15. The trophy presentation to winners, along with the traditional champagne shower, will get underway at around 2:15pm.

Gill and co-driver, Sam Tapping, lead Neill Ford and Colin Maher (Chevrolet Corvette Z06) by 7m04s and look to have victory in their grasp.

Lukasz and Tillet in action

Lukasz, who remains in the Targa Adelaide field for the final two days with co-driver Adam Tillet, were impressive in his 1995 Nissan 200 SX.

The combination completed the opening 16 stages just one minute 31 seconds behind Early Modern leader and defending champion, Tim Possingham.

At the end of the opening two days in the hills, Lakusz and Tillet were in third place in the Early Modern class.

The CAMS South Australian Tarmac Championship consist of two rounds, with the first being the Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally held in January where Lukasz finished third.

After the opening day it looked like the winner of the opening round, Roger Paterson, was set to take the season title in his 1974 Porsche, but he and co-driver crashed out on the opening day when conditions were at their worst.

23-Aug-2013
Local motorsport competitor, Julian Newton, set the fastest time in the Sprint competition at the InterContinental night stage at Adelaide Showgrounds on the opening night of Adelaide Targa on Wednesday.

Newton put on a show for the crowd
It is the second year in a row that Newton’s Nissan GT-R set the pace under lights on the tight, testing, 4.05 kilometre stage.

He and co-driver Nathan Robertson set a time of three minutes, 34.26 seconds, on a course that was wet and slippery after the rain hit the track late in the afternoon in the lead-up to the race.

Second fastest was the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6.5 of Brenton Trautmann, with co-driver Paul Dinys, who finished 5.85 seconds behind.

Third place on the podium went to Andrew Weber, 7.75 seconds behind Newton.
