Targa Tasmania 2013: Hunter Holden VL Walkinshaw Highlights
Adam and David Kaplan thrill the crowds at Targa Tasmania 2013 receiving
the official title # One Hoons for the event. Despite breaking a couple of
rockers, the team had a good run and as you can see, a lot of fun. Enjoy,
please share and comment.
Targa Adelaide Nightstage 2013
Targa Adelaide is the first round of the 2013 / 2014 CAMS Australian Targa
Championship, and runs from Wednesday, August 21 until Sunday, August 25.
The course is held on closed tarmac roads, with up to 100 competitors
battling it out in cars ranging from a 1955 Fiat 500 Abarth, through to
current model Lamborghinis and Nissans.
Following Targa Adelaide, the CAMS Australian Targa Championship is
followed by Targa High Country in Victoria (November), Targa Wrest Point
(Tasmania) in January, and the season-ending Targa Tasmania in May 2014.
Walkinshaw enhanced 365kw E3 HSV LPI Clubsport with 3inch bimodal exhaust launch & drive by-HD
Please note video footage is best viewed in 720p/1080p HD and was taken
during the new year holiday break on a quiet outer suburban road to ensure
the safety of others. The launch was performed on lpg and comp mode was
selected to prevent wheel spin. Drive by shows how quite the Exhaust can be when cruising and when you open
it up past 3800rpm mark the sound that it makes when the vacuum operated
valves open up with the bimodal system.
VL turbo RB25/30 manual
As far as VL turbo's go the majority
choose to stick to an auto transmission so it was good to see Nigel's
giving his manaul box some stick at Calder Park. The VL Commodore is
powered by a D'Annello Performance Nissan RB25/30 twin cam turbo six combination that makes big power on pump
fuel. Nigel was testing a new 2-step / flat shift setup and the Holden
certainly showed promise going 10.04 at 140mph and 113mph to mid track.

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
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! Web: http://www.TheTravelTart.com
