Huge crash in a 73 Mach 1 Mustang in Targa Tasmania 2012
This is the entire stage and huge crash we had on TS10 Elephant Saddle in
Targa Tasmania 2012. We had MANY requests for a slow motion replay of the
in-car footage so here it is. You have to wait for the end, but it's
probably worth it.
We have been asked many times what caused the accident, and it's a typical
concoction of many factors. But ultimately it was wrong tire selection. We
used to run Bridgestone RE55, then they stopped making them. They produced
the RE11 which we were told were an improvement and a direct replacement.
Unfortunately we could not get any info about them except for what we were
told by our supplier. But when the info came out, they are a hot track day
tire, not to be used in cold or wet. When I downshifted, the rear lost
traction but gave no feedback at all - no shudder, no squeal, etc. and then
when the road camberchanged, or the surface changed, or I adjusted the
wheel ... the rear was already in a spin.
The main thing is that both Dad (navigator) and I are OK, and no other
crews were involved. The car shell is badly damaged, but the running gear
is OK. We have a new shell on its way, and we will start the rebuilding
process and get Junior back on the road. It might take a year, it might
take two years. It might take 10 years, but Junior will be back on the
So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please
leave nice comments.

The crash - Targa Tasmania 2012 in our 1973 Mustang
This is the stage and in-car footage of our crash on Elephant Saddle
yesterday! Only yesterday. Dad and I are both fine and well. Dad has been
checked out by his GP and given a clean bill of health. The FIV guys on the
course were very thorough and looked after us too.
I would like to thank Barry and Charles from car 925 (the Envy Scooters
Ute) for doing the right thing and then going above and beyond inensuring
we were OK and helping us alert every car after the incident. They knew
thier own stage was over, and they might have missed the whole day and yet
they stayed. That's the Targa spirit.
A huge thanks goes out to our crew who volunteer for us. They take annual
leave to be at Targa. They build us an amazing car and I have killed it. So
to our crew goes my heartfelt aplogy. Words cannot express my gratitude
towards Warren, Steve, Matt, Pete andthe dozens of people who have
contributed overthe years.
This incident was my fault in the end. You might be able to see/hear a
downshift to 3rd with a rev match that was obviously not good enough. It
unsettled the car enough to lose traction in the rear, and here are the
The car, Junior, was only finished the day before Prologue, so we are
pretty gutted at the result of this. But we will come back bigger and
better. We love what we do.
And lastly, but certainly not least, my apologies go out to our fans (or
Junior's fans) that actually extends overseas. To you all, my thanks for
you support and my apology for not lookingafter Junior properly.
And to everyone, we will rebuild. The only damage is in the shell. We are
looking for another 1973 shell, and we will be back bigger, better,
stronger and more experienced.
