After 4 days in sometimes trying conditions the Whitehot Motorsport crew of John and Jason White have taken out Targa Adelaide in their first attempt.
At their first attempt John and Jason have conquered Targa Adelaide 2012. In often trying conditions they led from the front from day 1 and were never headed.
An inspired choice of soft tyres proved decisive on the first 3 days as conditions more often than not quite wet , cold and slippery. Day 1 claimed a couple of big scalps, Event sponsor Kevin Weeks crashed on SS7 Castanbul and the next stage saw the demise of local hope Sims and Sims in their Nissan GTR.
The next couple of days saw the Whites lead ease out to 44 seconds from Tony Quinn in his GTR.
Day four was fine and the soft tyre choice almost bought the team undone , but the had enough time in hand to hang on from a fast finishing Quinn followed by the Rullo GTR in Third.
The boys also battled a few issues along the way from broken Driveshafts , worn out clutches and an intermittent \'miss\' but came out in front at the end.
Big thanks to Ole and his apprentice Mike at OBR for all their help and to Tony from TDv Autosport , the worlds best sparky and to Ric Kemp from RTE who didn\'t turn up for a free feed this time but is always available for a stir at the other end of the phone.
Enjoy the Day 1 run through a wet and slippery Castanbul.
