02-Jul-2013
The Supaloc Targa Adelaide is an exciting and international event featuring the best touring and classic cars in the world. This year the event kicks off with Targa Night Stage at Wayville Showgrounds. With a two week TV Campaign Backing up promotion, Spectator numbers are expected to be near the 23,000 people that attended the event last year.

Image

Although Targa Rally has traditionally been difficult to spectate, due to the nature of its long stage (course design,) the Targa Night Stage provides a stadium type atmosphere, much the same as a traditional motorsport event, such as the Clipsal 500, but on a smaller scale.


The Sporting Car Club has the opportunity to have 75 vehicles enter in the Targa Night Stage Sprint Event on Wednesday August 21st



This Sprint see’s competition cars tackle 2 laps of a 1.5km bitumen track built within the Adelaide Showgrounds. Various elevated vantage points deliver flame throwing, tyre shredding action just metres from spectators.



As vehicles complete the circuit, they re-enter Jubilee Pavilion for an up close and personal Car show. Here Spectators get to speak to drivers while the cars are literally still cooling down.



A huge range of vehicles are eligible for this event, from road going cars to historic racing cars. Entry fee is $195 per vehicle and includes Driver and Navigator. Participants will require a CAMS licence Level 2 Speed as a minimum and to be member of the Sporting Car Club.



If you would like to participate please contact Abbie on 8271 5689 or email specevents@internode.on.net for further details.

Ex-Adelaidian Steve Glenney, is this year’s local favourite to win the 2013 Targa Adelaide Rally.

Steve Glenney


Steve Glenney is in with a good chance of winning Targa Adelaide after placing second at Targa Tasmania in April.

Having lived at Wistow in the Adelaide Hills for most of his life, Glenney has local knowledge as his advantage and the Nissan R35 GTR he is piloting is being prepared by a local outfit that knows the conditions well.

His main competition will come from Jason White’s Lamborghini – winner of Supaloc Targa Adelaide last year, and the current Australian Targa Champion.

Others who could throw a spanner in the works for Glenney and White could be Tony Quinn in his Nissan R35 GTR, and dark-horse Matt Selley.

Selley has given away plans to enter his Classic BMW and has hopped back into the seat of his Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 9. Last year, Selley won the Mt Lofty Stage outright in that same car and was posting times close to those of White and Quinn, before an engine failure led to his retirement.

Haysman has a local, “Late Classic” battle on his hands.

Local Late-Classic competitor, Craig Haysman, has a potent threat in Roger Paterson come Targa Adelaide in less than three weeks time.

Haysman says Adelaide-based Paterson’s lift in performance at recent local events, and further development of his Porsche 911, pose a threat in Adelaide, but he has invested more time in vehicle preparation and time out on course to meet the challenge.

Jai Raymond who is an Adelaide Hills local, has also been performing well in his Rover SD1 at recent events, and could make his way onto the Late-Classic podium this year.

Green and Flood in action
With a second place on their first attempt in 2012, the boys have worked hard to improve their speed with mentors Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb.


The 4WD Showroom field will be a strong category in 2013, entertaining fans with real racing in real cars they can actually buy!



With TMR stable mate and outright contender Clinton Arentz returning his car to showroom specification for Targa Adelaide, Flood will be battling other strong Evo X crews while staving off rival Subaru STI’s for podium places.



Brand rivalry will be strong with the Buckby Motors Subaru WRX of Ben Newman being a real contender for a top three place.



Be sure to check the cars and crews at the Intercontinental Targa Adelaide Night stage, looking out for the local pair with flair and facial hair!

Written by Latest News
Wednesday, 14 August 2013

Targa Adelaide is shaping as a showdown between Tasmanian Jason White, in his all-conquering Lamborgini Gallardo Superleggra, and emerging rival and local hope, Steve Glenney, driving a Nissan GT-R, in the quest for modern honours.

While White has won six of his last seven starts in his Lamborghini, including Targa Adelaide on debut last year, he faces a fierce battle at the 2013/14 CAMS Australian Targa Championship season opener from Glenney, who finished second to him at the last event, Targa Tasmania in April, and would love to go one better at home.

The event will get underway with the InterContinental Targa Night Stage at the Adelaide Showgrounds on Wednesday night (August 21), but the event will be run and won across the following four days in the Adelaide Hills.

Glenney grew up on the tight twisting roads that border the South Australian capital, and knows the GT-R will be more competitive than the 2006 Subaru WRX STI he competed in last year.

"While I grew up on these roads they are actually the roads I’ve raced on least over the years, as I never did Classic Adelaide much, and last year we missed stages with a range of issues in an older car," Glenney said.

"I wouldn’t say we were confident (of a win) because Whitey is driving well and he has his car really well sorted.

"But our car this year should be good. Hopefully we have fixed the brake and gearbox issues that affected us in Targa Tasmania, and we are in a position where we can attack Whitey on more of the stages than we could then.

"It’s still an older car and we know that there is not much speed left in the car to develop. We are definitely entering with a view to doing well in the Championship, so it won’t be an all out attack.

"But with the gearbox and brake fixes we want to be able to push for longer. If we can keep the pressure on, that’s when the racing starts and that’s what we all love."

White is in no doubt that Glenney is the man to beat this year in Adelaide.

"Steve will be in the box seat for this one," White said. “He has a real home town advantage as he knows these roads so well.

"If he has got his car sorted to let him do what he does best, it will be a big chore to get ahead of him.

"That’s not to say that we won’t be having a crack, but he will definitely be hard to beat.

"But I think Jamie Vandenberg and Matty Rickards will be really quick as well.

"There’s no real tactic you can exploit in Targa these days, given the level of competition. You have to start very fast and then maintain that pace for four days – it’s about as complicated as that really.

"These are up there with the best rally stages in the land and it’s a better use of the roads this year. It’s one of the most enjoyable in the Targa Championship and I’m really looking forward to it."

Targa Director, Stuart Benson, believes the field will enjoy the new course.

"We are using some of the best roads in both directions this year, which makes it a really compact rally,” Benson said.

"When you add names like Tony Quinn to the mix with White, Glenney, Rickards, and Vandenberg, you have the makings of a superb contest.

"As always, as well as these boys in modern, you will see great action in all the classic cars and the showroom classes as well.

"We expect the night stage at the Showgrounds to be a big hit again. Adelaide people love their motorsport, so I know everyone at our end, from the organisers to the drivers, are really looking forward to putting on a good show for the fans.”

After the opening sprint around the showgrounds, the rally heads to the hills where competitors face a further 28 competitive stages across 250 competitive kilometres on closed roads, before finishing at The Parade in Norwood on Sunday afternoon (August 25).

19-Aug-2013
The winner of the classic car outright competition at Targa Adelaide last year, South Australian Craig Haysman, is looking to make it back-to-back titles in 2013.

Image

Craig Haysman performed well in the wet in Adelaide last year Haysman will fire up his magnificently restored 1981 Triumph TR7 V8 at the Adelaide Showgrounds next Wednesday, for the first of 29 stages across five days that will test all cars in the event, but particularly the classic cars, built before 1986.



Haysman, who debuted his V8 Triumph in Adelaide last year, will face many challengers, but good judges are thinking that Roger Patterson could be his biggest threat.



Patterson finished third last year in his 1974 Porsche 911 RS, one minute 43 seconds off the winning pace, but the Adelaide surgeon has worked hard on his car to improve his speed on the twisting stages in the hills.



Haysman had a strong end to 2012, adding to his local victory with a third at Targa High Country in Victoria in November.



At the season finale in April, Targa Tasmania, mechanical issues ruined his event and his championship dreams, frustrations that he hopes are now well behind him.



“On the final day with just a few stages to go we were over a minute clear of our nearest rival for both the Targa Tasmania title and the CAMS Australian Targa Championship series win,” Haysman said.



“We had a gearbox problem with three stages to go and all that just disappeared. It was pretty devastating really.”



Since that setback Haysman has worked hard on getting his car ready, as well as on his own preparation.



“There is a lot of pressure for us to go back-to-back in Adelaide,” Haysman said.



“We have put in the maximum amount of preparation for the car. Targa is such a hard event it takes a lot out of the car, but we’ve put the hard yards in and hopefully it all pays off.



“This year is a really compact course that is very technical, very challenging, but that should suit our car very well.”



Haysman is well aware that he won’t have it all his own way though.



“I see Roger Patterson as being a big challenger. He’s done some recent local events and did extremely well and he’s definitely getting faster,” Haysman said.



“Tim Knappstein is a seasoned campaigner. His Datsun 240Z is fast and he’s another one certainly not to be discounted.”



As well as outright honours, Haysman will be in with a chance for the Late Classic handicap title, but Paterson is probably the man most likely to succeed here if he can get his car to the finish line.



In Early Classic handicap (pre 1972), Victorian Jack Waldron is always in the hunt in his reliable 1955 Fiat Abarth 750, although others, including Knappstein, would like to keep all the trophies in South Australia this coming weekend.



Targa Adelaide starts at the Adelaide Showgrounds with a special spectator friendly stage on Wednesday night, before heading to the hills for a further four days of competitive action across more than 250 kilometres of closed roads.



The event concludes with a champagne celebration at The Parade in Norwood early on Sunday afternoon.

Reigning Australian Targa Champion, Jason White, has made some specification changes to his Lamborghini to fall in line with rule changes for this year's championship.

Reigning Australian Targa Champion, Jason White, has made some specification changes to his Lamborghini to fall in line with rule changes for this year's championship.

With the season-opening Targa Adelaide starting tonight, White's Italian supercar has been changed to Superleggera specification.

The Tasmanian, who won Targa Adelaide on debut last year, says that despite the changes, his car should be just as fast out on the closed road tarmac stages.

"The changes aren't that crucial from a performance point of view, but we have had to take the big rear wing off the car, replacing it with the original smaller one," White said.

"Perhaps the biggest difference is that a computer software issue has meant that we can't run the steering wheel-mounted gear change paddle set-up this weekend.

"We've had to put a gear stick back in the car, and while this will take some getting used to again, it's actually quicker going up through the gears this way," he added.

White's biggest rivals in the Modern competition of this year's event will be the Nissan GT-R of former Adelaide Hills local, Steve Glenney, and the similar vehicle of Targa regular, Tony Quinn.

In the Classic Outright competition, Adelaide's Craig Haysman will start a firm favourite in his Triumph TR7 V8, with another South Australian, Roger Paterson, another to watch in his 1974 Porsche 911 RS.

Targa Adelaide gets underway on Wednesday night with a special spectator stage around the Wayville Showgrounds. Wet weather in Adelaide this afternoon could make conditions interesting for crews, while giving the large spectator numbers plenty of sideways action.

Tasmanian Jason White has taken the opening honours in Targa Adelaide, winning the InterContinental spectator stage at the Wayville Showgrounds in his Lamborghi.

He finished just over two seconds clear of the man who is set to push for the remainder of the event, Steve Glenney, in a Nissan GT-R.



A crowd of 16500 spectators watched the battle.



After rain threatened to put a dampener on proceedings, the weather cleared in time for the 90 cars to make their way around the four kilometre course.



Thursday sees the cars head to more traditional Targa terrain for the final four days, tackling 29 stages across 250 competitive kilometres on closed roads, before crossing the finish line in The Parade in Norwood, from around 12:15 on Sunday.



The trophy presentation to winners, along with the traditional champagne shower, will get underway at around 2:15pm.

22-Aug-2013
Adelaide Hills driver, Steve Glenney, has had a brilliant opening day at Targa Adelaide, winning five of the day's eight closed road stages to take an 18 second lead with three days remaining.

Image

Steve Gleeney back in the Adelaide Hills Glenney and his Nissan GT-R have out-paced last year's winner and reigning CAMS Australian Targa Champion, Jason White, in his Lamborghini Gallardo, with the Nissan GT-R of veteran Tony Quinn in third place, a further two seconds back.



Adelaide surgeon, Roger Paterson, sits 23 seconds on top of the Classic Outright leader board in his 1974 Porsche 911, with fellow South Australians Craig Haysman (1981 Triumph TR7 V8) and Simon Hoff (1975 Ford Escort RS2000), in second and third places.



After last night's opening spectator stage at the Adelaide Showgrounds attracted a crowd of over 16,000 fans, wet weather greeted the 100 strong field as they headed off on the day's stages north east of the city.



In a car that has plenty of fine-tuning since its last outing at Targa Tasmania in April, Glenney gradually increased his lead over pre-event favourite Jason White, storming home over the day's final two stages.



"It was a good day for us. Very tricky conditions, but we found a good feeling with the car and that enabled me to have good day," Glenney said.



"It was very slippery and we took it relatively easy, not wanting to have any moments in the big, heavy GT-R, but as I said the car was working quite well.



"We're running the standard Dunlop tyres that come on the car from the factory, but we've made a few tweaks to the suspension and the brakes since the last event.



"We'll keep improving the feeling of the car, but if it dries up we'll have to make a few more changes, but it's been a good start so far."



In second place, Jason White had some small problems throughout the day, but is still well within striking distance of the lead.



"We had a myriad of electrical issues across the morning and we just really struggled to get the car off the line at all," White said. "Still, that didn’t cost us too much time which was good.



"The last stage was where we lost most of our time. Steve (Glenney) was about eight cars ahead of us on the road, and just as we took off it started absolutely bucketing down. We spent too much time aquaplaning and we lost a bit of time.



"We’re in a pretty good position though. Eighteen seconds with three days to go is not really a problem."



As predicted, the Classic Outright battle was a two-way fight between Paterson and Haysman, with last year's winner in second place as the Porsche man won six stages.



Paterson was clearly in the better car in the wet and slippery conditions, although Haysman limited the damage with equal quickest time on the day's final stage.



"We've had an enjoyable day. The car hasn't put a foot wrong, but the driver was a bit of a problem," Paterson said jokingly.



"We set out to be leading after the first day, but we didn't have expectations as such. The aim was to try to win this event, and to do that we had to be ahead after day one.



"The conditions suited us better today because we're running soft tyres all round, but I think that might be different on the drier days and we'll see who's made the better choice.”



In other categories, Michael Ford (2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X) holds a six second lead in Showroom 4WD, Adam Spence has his Renault Megane eight seconds in front in Showroom 2WD, and Tim Possingham (1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R) is a clear 53 second leader in Early Modern.



The Modern Muscle Car class is being dominated by the 2009 HSV Maloo of Toby Gill, while Craig van Diemen (2004 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII) is just two seconds ahead of Scott Limbert (1989 Nissan GTR R32) in the Rookie Rallye for Modern cars.



Day two of Targa Adelaide heads west of the South Australian capital over another eight closed road tarmac stages covering a further 72.05 competitive kilometres.



The longest stage of the day is the 15.21km Marble Hill stage, the fourth of the day.



Targa Adelaide finishes in Norwood at lunch time on Sunday.

Tim Possingham on Day 1 in Adelaide The reigning Early Modern champion, along with his co-driver Ben Scott, have taken their 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R to a 53 second lead over the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI of Robert Balint and Peter Lane.



Andre Lukasz and Adam Tillett are third in a 1995 Nissan 200 SX, one minute and 23 seconds from the lead.



"It's been a good day but we've had quite a few problems with the car," Possingham said.



"We have a new LSD in the front of the car and we've had some torque steer issues that took some getting used to.



"And the turbo was over-boosting and the engine was cutting out, but we've now fixed those problems and we're looking forward to a trouble free run tomorrow."



In the Muscle Car class Toby Gill and Sam Tapping, in a 2009 HSV Maloo,have opened up a two minute advantage over Neill Ford and Colin Maher who are driving a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
