Spence-Button with their first podium finish in 3rd place driving a BMW 130i.

Dodd – Challoner-Miles finished in 4th place driving a Mazda MX5

McKay – Hailstone finished in 5th while MacKay – Fisher finished in 6th also driving Mazda MX5’s.

Shacklady – Neagle finished in 8th and Sutcliffe – Acwoth in 9th – you guessed it – driving Mazda MX5’s.

The event was notable for the wining car, a Lamborghini Gallardo, crossing the line whilst on fire.

The competitor, Jason White, was encouraged by his navigator to press-on and complete the stage allowing him to win the Targa High Country 2011 event.

Also notable was an innovation by one of the competitors to cool their ECU mid-stage. It’s also in the video above.

A great result for www.targaracing.com.au and we’re now preparing for Targa Wrest Point and ultimately Targa Tasmania 2012.

We’ll have a more detailed report as well some pic’s and video in the days ahead. Stay tuned.

Well done to all our www.TargaRacing.com.au team. Roll-on Targa Wrest Point!
