Targa High Country 2012 was completed the past weekend, the event has been documented closely by the organisers with highlight videos posted everyday. A diverse range of cars compete in the event, such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi TT RS, Porsche 911 GT2 RS CS, Nissan R35 GT-R, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Subaru WRX STI, Holden utes, Datsun 1600, 260Z. The Targa High Country is a series of four annual tarmac rallies. Competitions include the Targa Tasmania, Targa Wrest Point, Supaloc Targa Adelaide and Targa High Country.
After dominating the last five Targa events, including winning last years Targa High Country while on fire, Jason White’s run came to and end when his front differential exploded on the second stage of day two. This left Tony Quinn in the R35 GTR and Matt Close in the Audi TT RS to battle it out with Quinn taking the win from Close, with Targa Legend and seven times Bathurst winner Jim Richards finishing in 3rd in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Benjamin Wooster notably driving his Holden SS Ute hard on the stages getting the back end out regularly and also look out for Kangaroos running in front of Targa cars and the usual thrills and spills.
