TMR Evo Xs fight for Targa 2015 podiums
Targa Tasmania 2015 was a successful stomping ground for a trio of TMR-serviced Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Xs.
In the intensely-contested Modern outright category Williams/Bush was able to finish sixth, behind three Nissan GT-Rs, a Lamborghini and an Evolution IX driven by local hot-shoe Eddie Maguire. “Max does a good job with that car, he’s very quick and proved once more the competitiveness of the Evo in tarmac rallying, even among the big Nissans, Porsches and Lamborghini,” says TMR boss Alan Heaphy.
Liddle/Lloyd also fared well in the 4WD Showroom category, being the first Evo home in fourth position behind a pair of 2.5-litre STIs and a Mercedes A45 AMG. “Liddle’s Evo X RS was quick throughout the event,” says Heaphy. “We were impressed with his pace.”
Davis/Davis were delayed in-event with their Evo X, though still managed to complete the event by finishing 10th in the 4WD Showroom category.
Targa competition now turns to Targa High Country, to be held from its traditional Mount Buller base from November 6-8, 2015.
