This terrible incident occurred at Targa Wrest Point 2012 on the Esperance Coast stage. A miscommunication between driver and navigator lead the classic car to its demise.
Both occupants were relatively unharmed, the navigator had a short stint in hospital, but was checked out later that evening.

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.

Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!

1981 Ford Capri 2.3 V6 cold start in winter
Auf mehrfachen Wunsch die deutsche Übersetzung:
Hier seht ihr meinen 1981er Ford Capri, er verfügt über einen 2.3 Liter
V6 Vergaser-Motor. Das Fahrzeug hat eine Automatische Choke-Vorrichting,
was bedeutet, daß man bei Kälte keinen Knopf ziehen muß so wie bei
früheren Vergaser Motoren. Zweimaliges drücken des Gaspedas sollte den
automatischen Vergaser aktivieren (hat hier anscheinend nicht so
funktionert) Ich finde das Fahrzeug hat einen tollen Sound verglichen mit
den heutigen Autos. Wenn euch das Video gefällt gebt mir ein 'Daumen
