Congratulations to WRX Club of Qld member Rodney Blank for successfully completing Targa 2011. Rod is a regular at Targa, but this year achieved his best result with a 23rd outright. Rod proudly flies the Subaru banner with his 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi C-Spec which runs in the Modern class, with 946 on the doors.
It was a great week for Subaru with 10 out of the top 25 cars being a Subaru.
Queenslander Tony Quinn has claimed his second modern Targa Tasmania title in three years with an emphatic display across five days and 500 kilometres of intense competition around the island state.
The 2009 winner was the dominant force in the event in his Nissan GT-R. He and co-driver, Naomi Tillet, took the lead on Targa stage four on the opening day, and were never headed, crossing the finish line at Hobart’s Wrest Point three minutes and 39 seconds ahead of second placegetter, Dean Herridge, in a Subaru WRX STI. Matthew Sims was third, a further one minute 58 seconds in arrears.
