Targa Tasmania – Day One
The team from Redbackracing headed West today to the Central Western tablelands of Tasmania. Both cars were performing very well through the initial two stages. Moving into the longer more technical stages both Renaults were heading up the category with only seconds separating the times of the two cars.
At the sixth stage of the day – Merseylea, the two teams had interesting moments. With car 933 of Andrew and Lee entering the stage first they were aware of their sister car following the into the stage, they pushed the car through the stage and were twice on the wrong side of the edge. Once getting airborne at high speed (see the below video) and later into the stage coming off the tarmac into the gravel and grass. Having been through this the car still completed the stage. However car 922 of Adam and Erin entered the stage chasing after car 933, they too were pushing hard and on the same corner where Andrew and Lee left the tarmac, Adam and Erin did the exact same feat on the same corner however going a little further off course subsequently getting stuck.
As always the redbackracing service crew were on hand to get the car out and make minor repairs to get Adam and Erin back into the race for the last two stages of the day.
With Andrew and Lee in first place for Targa showroom and Adam and Erin still in a good position that they can build on over the next four days its going to continue to be an amazing event and live up its name as The Ultimate Tarmac Rally.
