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.

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD
Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original
Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann.
Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l
In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme
nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen
2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf.
Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug
umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und
deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad".
Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf
Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde
von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan
Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei

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
So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please
leave nice comments.

Partial throttle runs for fuel mapping. Dyno was set to sweep
1000-7000rpm in 18 seconds. Limiter at 6450rpm. Crash at 5400rpm most
likely due bad conrod bearing.

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!

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.

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
