Targa Day 2

Off to the Sidling stage first up over towards the East Coast of Tasmania

It was dark and cold as we left Launceston this morning. We watched the temperature gauge drop slowly as we crept up through the hills.

The lowest we saw before getting to the Sidling stage was -3C

Last year the stage was covered in fog and no sun.

This year it was a very different story with clear skies and sunshine, it made for some very nice scenic images

Robin Lowe & Peter Lowe - 1971 Datsun 240Z

Eric Grimshaw & Martin Brewster - 1980 Ford Escort RS2000

Kevin Weeks & Rebecca Crunkhorn - 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

Bill Pye & Grant Geelan - 1974 Porsche RS

Dean Evans & Simone Bachman - 2009 Lotus Exige Cup 260

As well as the scenic images, I also shot some nice tight action shots, including the one of Dean Evans, putting the Lotus in the gravel

From here we headed back to Launceston, to cover the last stage of the day in the small town of Longford. It is a great street stage, the light is good late in the day and there is nice colour and action to be had

After Longford we head back to the Silverdome in Launceston for the end of day service, it was a nice opportunity to photograph the cars arriving back into the dome at the end of the day
