Targa Tasmania 2021

Post by dart207 »

Just back from our third Targa Tasmania with the Avanti and we managed to improve to 2nd place in Classic. Bit of a tense week with 3 fatalities in the event and 4 of the 6 days being wet. Went down to Tasmania with 550hp atw this year and would probably have been better with less. Had a spin at around 100mph on a 4th gear change on day 5 and luckily only went about 10' into the dirt before spinning back onto the road. Just plain lucky that we didn't put it through the trees so we spent the rest of the day trying to rebuild our confidence.
