At the start of the stage the Navigator of the rally spec Celica in front said "my Driver hates Rotaries but I love em, I bet you a beer you cant catch us on this stage..." With such high stakes, it was on !!
30 seconds head start, 9.86km and got him on the final straight where we hit approx 215km/h as we passed him! 10,000rpm with the 13B PP
Enjoy, we did!

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.
