Targa Adelaide 2013

Recommended Posts

Despite the wet weather we had a good first day ending up equal 5th in Classic Outright.  Tim was fast but suffered some mechanical dramas and missed a few stages and the other two Zeds are going well just outside the top 10.

 

Looks to be wet again today but clearing for the weekend so looking forward to that.

For those in SA check the targa web site for good spectator spots.

Glad to see so many of the local boys up the top so far, great job! Night stage was interesting,impressed with the amount of spectators.

 

Now if you excuse me, I'm heading up to have a gander.

Roger, was that you guys (well, guy and gal) stuck on Pole Rd in the silver 240 at about 4:30ish? Should have stopped in hindsight and now I feel bad  :(

Nope, not us, we made it through the day OK but dropped a couple of spots in the very wet stages.

Certainly hoping for drier weather on the weekend.

 

Who was in the white zed at the start of the Marble Hill stage?

That would have been me ;D.  Lucky enough to get out for a look Thursday, Friday and about to head out for Ironbank section today.

 

Great event and soooo nice to get some miles on the Z after a long break.

Better weather today and back up to 5th with attrition. Unfortunately Goodwin and Knappstein didn't start today both with some mechanical gremlins and I think the Edwards car might have had a mishap this afternoon too.

Short day tomorrow just need to bring it home in one piece.

Yeah, I worked out it was the Goodwin car I passed on the side of pole Rd. I also think Edwards ate some undergrowth or similar at some stage as their front spoiler was pretty mangled. Will post pics of the latter when I get then off a mate. Hope the car is in Norwood tomorrow  :)

A few pictures a friend snapped on Saturday near Pole Rd and Ironbank Rd. Used to live near this corner and about every 3 - 6 months you would see a P-platers car buried in the side of the road.

 

The few zeds left running at this stage:
