Targa 2005 - Day 3

Crashed Gallardo

Oh dear, things were going so well too.

The Tassie weather always seems to play a hand in Targa, this year being no exception. Being a road event, any small off can lead to disaster as Paul Stokell found out on the Cygnet stage on Day 3. Too badly damaged to continue, the Lambo was withdrawn from the rally after showing so much promise the previous day… Maybe next year then?

After starting the day in forth place, the GT-R of White/White flew through the damp stages overtaking the Porsches of Richards and Quinn to retake the lead by a not inconsiderable 27s.
