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 a poor change down to 3rd that tipped the scales, and the road conditions didn't allow me to catch it like I had many times before. I won't bother with listing the contributing factors because it may sound like I (the driver) am looking for excuses! 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 road. 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 results. 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.

V8 Cars - Holden Torana Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia
More at http://amzn.to/hTjVoh and http://www.thetraveltart.com/ V8 Car Holden Torana Loud Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia. Very, very loud video of the start line. I could barely hear myself above the engine noise. This is what you would call a muscle car in the United States, like a Camaro or Ford Mustang. Australia loves producing their version of the American muscle car. I really love the comments from everyone below about how good this sounds! This is obviously a highly modified V8 car (or Muscle car) that sounds fantastic! The way cars should sound me thinks! I've written about this elsewhere on another related Holden Torana video ripping down the road as fast as possible. Anyway, the Holden Torana is a circa 1970's muscle car. Was great listening to the car at the starting line here, even though I now suffer from industrial deafness! I was right next to this beast! Back in the 1970s (yes, well over 40 years ago), the Holden Torana was a very popular road car in Australia. It was small in size, but had a large, loud and noisy V8 engine (called a 308) which gave it a high power to weight ratio. Many car enthusiasts have maintained their Toranas until this day so some of them now are collectors items and are highly sought after by Holden fans. This was the General Motors Holden weapon used against the massive Ford Falcon, and this is a rivalry that exists until today In the Targa Tasmania, there are many different categories of cars, including ones of different capacities, sizes and eras. This can range from classic cars to supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Petrol head heaven! The Targa Tasmania takes place all over the state of Tasmania around April of each year. This is quite different to dirt based rallies, as this rally occurs on public tarmac roads and cars must be able to be registered to be driven on public roads. I stood next to this car at the starting line and I could barely hear myself speak. Turning the speakers up to maximum goes nowhere near the crazy noise that this sounds like in real life! And this is a fast car, considering the age and era of where this comes from. I think the driver has souped up this car a lot just for the noise factor! Holden is also a subsidiary of the General Motors organisation. The Holden Torana was also designed, engineered and built in Australia. It was famously driven by the legendary Peter Brock who won a number of Bathurst 1000 titles, which is an endurance race for touring cars that has been held for decades and is usually a battle between Holden and Ford. So anyway, for the fast car fans out there in petrol head land, enjoy this very short but sweet video of a V8 Holden Torana revving it's guts out at the starting line. I'll never forget listening to this loud V8 muscle car, and neither will you!
