Targa Tasmania Prologue – Day Zero

Targa Tasmania Prologue – Day Zero

Targa Tasmania 2014 got under way today with 2 prologue stages in Kayena and Georgetown, North of Launceston. With the sun shining but cool temperatures the teams were glad to get the campaign underway.

Car 933 of Andrew Bollom and Lee Challoner-Miles finished both stages on top with car 922 of Adam Spence and Erin Kelly 6.2 seconds behind in second place. The prologue times are used to set the start time for Day one of the rally and not used for the total rally time.

The course heads North tomorrow towards Devonport with 8 action packed stages.

Targa Tasmania starts tomorrow (6th May) with 2 prologue events at Kayena and George Town, having some time in the car to perform a shakedown today before heading out on Tasmania’s roads gave the team a great chance to test and tweak the teams two Renault Megane’s.

Recce Time TT14!

Redback Racing Targa Tasmania Recce

Over the past two days the two Redback teams have been busy refining their pace notes ready for Targa Tasmania in just under 10 days time. Both crews have been been using the Hema HN7 sat navs to navigate the fastest way around the Tasmanian West Coast and have been very impressed with their performance. Tomorrow they will make their way to Hobart going over the leg 5 stages which includes the 60km Mount Arrowsmith stage.
