Outright winners Jason and John White
At the conclusion of Targa Tasmania 2012 it appears that Dunlop tyres have dominated the results again. The DUNLOP DZ03G tyre has been the preferred choice of the majority of competitors, taking first and second places in both Modern and Classic categories.
Local hope Jason White has secured his second Targa Tasmania title in three years with his Dunlop shod Lamborghini.
The win has given White and co-driver – uncle John White – a clean sweep of the CAMS Australian Targa Championship, the pair having already won Targa High Country in Victoria and Targa Wrest Point earlier this series.
Classic Outright leader Rex Broadbent cruised to victory in Classic Outright, his 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera securing a sixth straight title, all on the redoubtable Dunlop rubber.
Second was Jon Siddins in his 1970 Datsun 240Z, who put up a dogged fight with Broadbent, finishing just one minute, two seconds behind.
Dunlop shod cars also won Showroom 4WD, Early Classic handicap and Late Classic Handicap.
DUNLOP tyres were chosen by 46% of all Modern competitors (Yokohama 27%, Toyo 11%, Kumho 9%, Bridgestone 4% and Pirelli 4%).
