Traga Update (day 2)

Waza says to say hi. HI

Day two for Warricks team went better than day 1. They spent a fair bit of last night working on the car. It was very pleasing to have only minnor things to do tonight. They started the day 154 on the road but expect to see them move up.

The XR6 started the day 68th. Details of today stages won't be available until later tonight. It is my night off but the last time I spoke to Greg the car ran well today with a breather the only problem. The car was getting an oil change prior to some club members doing some cleaning a bit later in the night.

Brock in the lead monaro is up to 7th.

Keep the updates coming Ian.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

White out of contention following mechanical failure
LAUNCESTON, April 17 AAP|Published: Wednesday April 17, 7:23 PM



Tasmanian Jason White, nominated by Jim Richards as his main rival in this year's Targa Tasmania rally, dropped out of contention after today's opening leg.

White's turbo Mitsubishi Evo VII was slowed by a fuel pump failure and he received 60 minutes in accumulated penalties for failing to pass control points in the allocated time.

In a double blow for Tasmania, Hobart's three-time Australian Gold Star champion Paul Stokell was ruled ineligible to be included in official results because his Volkswagon Beetle did not comply with the regulations at scrutineering the previous day.

Richards, who has won the event a record five times, established an early lead in this year's 1977km event when he recorded a penalty time of six seconds over the opening eight stages in the northern area of the state.

The Porsche 911 Turbo driver Richards holds a 21s advantage over South Australia's Steve Glenney in a Nissan Skyline, while nine-time Bathurst winner Peter Brock is seventh in a V8 Holden Monaro, 48s behind Richards.

White, who was forth in yesterday's prologue, suffered mechanical problems after completing the Moriarty stage.

"We were just idling along and the car ran out of power," the Devonport driver said.

"I thought we must be out of fuel and then the car just gave up and stopped.

"I couldn't get hold of my service crew and I was getting a bit worried until I found out they were only a couple of minutes away."

White said he was considering disputing the time penalty, because he believed the sweep car did not pass him during the Moriarty stage.

"We will have to see what happens with the results and it's possible things could change," he said.

Targa chief technical officer Ken Price said the decision on Stokell's Volkswagon had been handed down when the car was found to be missing body support panels and interior trim components.

Stokell said he was disappointed at being ruled ineligible for inclusion in the results, but would continue driving in the event which finishes in Hobart on Sunday.

Tomorrow's second leg comprises nine stages with the field of around 280 cars travelling south to Hobart.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

There has been an update on this situation.

TARGA TASMANIA NEWS FLASH - WHITE TIME PENALTY DROPPED

Devonport driver Jason White was this morning promoted to fifth position in the Targa Tasmania tarmac rally after his time penalty of 3-hrs 37-mins imposed from yesterday's opening leg was dropped.

White was last night given a time penalty of 3-hrs 37-mins after his Mitsubishi Evo VII was passed by the Sweep Vehicle before the start of the Quamby Brook stage. The stage was closed when he arrived at the start.

The 29-year-old then applied for a derived time for the stage, claiming he had been passed by the Sweep Vehicle during a brief fuel stop.

Targa Clerk of Course Tom Snooks announced this morning that White's application for a derived time had been successful. White was then promoted to fifth position with a revised penalty time of 33-secs. Defending champion Jim Richards leads the event with a penalty time of 6-secs in a turbo Porsche 911. Today's second leg comprises nine stages, starting at Launceston and finishing in Hobart with a total competitive distance of 75.40km.
