Scott Limbert and John DalCollo can relax at last

Limbert, driving a 1989 Nissan GTR R32, finished the 16 stages across the first two days of competition, two minutes and five seconds clear of Craig van Diemen and Michel Mohr, who took their 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 to second place.

Two minutes 22 seconds further back was Ben Calder and David Rowe, in a 2000 Lancer Evo 6.

Winner of the Classic Rookie Rallye was Andy Sarandis, who teamed with Michael Busby in a 1986 Toyota Corolla.

Both Limbert and Sarandis not only collected a trophy for their efforts, but also secured a free entry in Targa High Country, which takes place from November 8 to 10 at Mt Buller in Victoria.

Sarandis said after the event that he loved his introduction to Targa rallying and was looking forward to a second outing at High Country.

After leading Classic Outright by just 39 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 over the Ford Escort of Simon Hoff.

Image


Simon Hoff leads Late Classic

Jai Raymond in a 1979 Rover SD 1 is third, but while the top two placings look settled, the final spot on the podium will be hotly contested on the final day. Raymond leads Peter Ullrich by just 11 seconds with one day to go. The two started today just two seconds apart, so it was a narrow win to the Rover across the eight stages contested.

Ullrich still has a handy lead in the Early Modern handicap class, his beautiful Jenson CV8 one minute 42 seconds clear of Andrew Bryson’s Hillman IMP Rallye, with Jack Waldron, in his 1955 Fiat Abarth, the oldest car in the field, third.

Waldron is also under pressure to keep his spot on the podium, with Zac Caudo in a 1973 Datsun 1200 just 17 seconds further back.

In Late Classic it is Simon Hoff in control. He has a two minute 52 second advantage over Haysman while Robert Gambino, in a 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB is back in third.

Haysman charged today, reducing Hoff’s handicap lead by over two minutes, but with just four stages remaining tomorrow, Hoff looks to have a solid grip on the Late Classic trophy.

Adelaide’s Tim Possingham and Ben Scott were untroubled in his quest to win the Early Modern class in his Nissan Skyline GT-R

“The first couple of days we had a few dramas and problems, and that’s when we wanted to get a bit of a lead on everyone, so it made it a little more difficult” Possingham said.

“But luckily we built a good lead and just hung on to it for the last couple of days.

“I loved the tighter, twisty stages – it’s something you can commit to a little bit more, and attack the stages more, so I definitely loved the new event format of this year’s Targa Adelaide.”

Robert Balint and Peter Lane took second, 56 seconds in arrears in their Mitsubishi Lancer, followed by the Nissan 200 SZ of Andre Lukasz and Adam Tillett.

25-Aug-2013
Tasmanian driver, Ben Newman, has broken through for a maiden Targa victory, taking the top Showroom 4WD honours in his Subaru WRX STI at Targa Adelaide over the weekend.

Tasmanian pair, Ben Newman and Crichton Lewis

Newman, along with co-driver, Crichton Lewis, only took up the sport in 2011, and while they have come close to a win before in their short racing career, it was not until Adelaide that they collected a Showroom 4WD title.

In the end it was an emphatic win, finishing one minute 44 seconds clear of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo of Queensland racing driver, Clinton Arentz, with South Australian, Michael Flood, in another Evo, finishing third. Tasmanians Ralph and Malcolm Norton, driving a WRX, was fourth.

But it was far from an easy victory for the Neil Buckby Motors team. They only took the lead on the morning of the third day, and were then locked in a titanic struggle with the experienced Stuart Liddle, before he crashed out that afternoon, handing a handy buffer to the Launceston pair.

With just four stages on the final day, it was a matter of ensuring the Subaru WRX was brought home safely.

Newman and Lewis were understandably excited with their first win in the Championship.

“We’re rapt, it’s been a tough few days,” Newman said.

“After Stewart Liddle crashed yesterday we just had to bring it home neat and tidy today, so we’re very happy.”

The Renault Meganes of Adam Spence and Bunjamin Noor had an in-house battle for Showroom honours, with Spence notching up a very comfortable win by 20 minutes and 29 seconds . Glyn Crimp (BMW) survived the top conditions to make it through and collect top championship points in Showroom Sports.

The Hoff in action

South Australian Simon Hoff has had a weekend he will long remember, not only winning the Classic Outright title at Targa Adelaide in his 1975 Escort RS2000, but securing the Late Classic handicap title as well.



The man who was runner up in Classic Outright - the pure test of fastest classic car over the 29 testing stages – Peter Ullrich, won Early Classic Handicap honours in his beautiful 1963 Jensen CV8.



Third in Classic Outright, Bruce Power, was also second to Hoff in the Late Classic handicap.



The 250 competitive kilometres across four days was a tough test for driver and car, particularly the opening two days that were run in heavy rain.



Until today’s third last stage, it looked as if last year’s Classic Outright winner, Craig Haysman, had back-to-back titles in the bag. But his Triumph TR7 V8 stopped with mechanical problems when victory looked assured, handing the win to Hoff.



Hoff had pushed the more powerful Triumph of Haysman across the opening two days, his Escort seizing its advantage over its more powerful rival in the wet. But when the roads dried on Saturday, Haysman built a buffer, but that counted for nothing when he was forced to retire his car.



Andrew Bryson finished second in Early Classic to Ullrich in his Hillman IMP Rallye, with Jack Waldron, driving a 1955 Fiat Abarth, the oldest car in the field, third.



In Late Classic, Hoff won by one minute 45 seconds from Power, with Robert Gambino, in a Ferrari 308 GTB, third, another one minute 22 seconds behind.

Adelaide Hills rally ace, Steve Glenney, has taken a brilliant victory in the four-day Targa Adelaide rally, the first round of the CAMS Australian Targa Championship.

Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb
Adelaide Hills rally ace, Steve Glenney, has produced a superb drive to secure a brilliant victory in the four-day Targa Adelaide rally, the first round of the CAMS Australian Targa Championship.

Driver a 2009 Nissan GT-R, Glenney and co-driver, Bernie Webb, took the lead on the fourth stage of the event back on Thursday and were never headed, finishing one minute and 39 seconds ahead of reigning Targa champion Jason White (Lamborghini Gallardo) and Tony Quinn (Nissan GT-R) after 28 stages.

Another Adelaide driver, Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000), won the Classic Outright competition, after long-time leader, Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) suffered mechanical problems with just three stages remaining. Tasmania’s Ben Newman won the Showroom 4WD class in his Subaru WRX.

After treacherous weather conditions over the opening days of competition, the rain held off for the final day as the 100-strong field contested four closed road tarmac stages over 45 competitive kilometres.

In the Modern competition, Glenney was the class act, pushing hard in wet on days one and two, and never relinquishing his advantage. When Jason White’s Lamborghini suffered a broken front differential mid-way through day two, Glenney’s win was all but secured.

Victory was sweet for Glenney, his first modern Targa title since winning in Targa Tasmania back in 2008.

“It’s a great result for us against a very strong field here in Adelaide, and I think the top five or six traded stage wins throughout the week, so to come out on top we’re thrilled,” Glenney said.

“I think the heavier Nissan GT-R, with its road-style tyres, does help in the wet, so we were able to get the jump on everyone early on.

“That helped, but then we did some tuning to our dry set-up today, which still needs a bit more work, but I think we’re able to keep pace in these conditions too.

“My local knowledge helped and made me feel more comfortable with the surroundings, but I’ve raced on the Tasmanian roads more than I’ve raced here.

“We’re now looking forward to the next few rounds of the championship and taking the fight right up to Jason (White) again.”

White managed to hold on to second place, nearly a minute clear of Targa veteran Tony Quinn in his Nissan, with the similar car of Jamie Vandenberg fourth. Peter Mayer rounded out the top five in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Hoff’s win in Classic Outright in his Ford Escort was hard fought. He trailed fellow Adelaide drivers, Roger Paterson (Porsche) and Craig Haysman (Triumph), for much of the event, but when Paterson crashed out and Haysman had car trouble, he took a popular win in a car not normally suited to tarmac rallying.

“It’s great – I can’t believe it,” Hoff said.

“It’s a bit devastating for Craig (Haysman) as I never would have caught him otherwise, as he had a big lead and the conditions were dry.

“I didn’t have a lot of local knowledge, but I just kept the car straight and waited to see how we went. I’m very surprised to win, but very happy.

“The car went absolutely awesome, and without the help of a lot of people this wouldn’t have been possible. It’s just a good little car.”

Second Classic car home was the beautiful 1963 Jensen CV8 of Peter and Sari Ullrich, some 3minutes 43 seconds behind, with the Mazda RX7 of Bruce Power and Andrew Buerkner third.

Hoff (Late Classic) and Ullrich (Early Classic) were the event’s handicap winners.

After early leader in Showroom 4WD, Stewart Liddle (Mitsubishi), crashed out on day three, Ben Newman took a comfortable class win, while the Renault Megane of Adam Spence dominated Showroom. Glyn Crimp (BMW) secured top points in Showroom Sports.

It was a great event for local drivers, with Adelaide’s Tim Possingham untroubled in his quest to win the Early Modern class in his Nissan Skyline GT-R. Toby Gill (HSV Maloo) thrilled V8 fans on his way to Modern Muscle Car success, and Colin Zytveld took out the silverware in Regularity.

The next round of the CAMS Australian Targa Championship is Victoria’s Targa High Country, based out of Mt Buller, from November 8 to 10.
