White holds fifth position after time penalty dropped.

THURSDAY, APRIL 18: Devonport driver Jason White was this morning promoted to fifth position in the Targa Tasmania tarmac rally after his time penalty of 3-hrs 37-mins imposed from yesterday's opening leg was dropped.

White was last night given a time penalty of 3-hrs 37-mins after his Mitsubishi Evo VII was passed by the Sweep Vehicle before the start of the Quamby Brook stage. The stage was closed when he arrived at the start.

The 29-year-old then applied for a derived time for the stage, claiming he had been passed by the Sweep Vehicle during a brief fuel stop.

Targa Clerk of Course Tom Snooks announced this morning that White's application for a derived time had been successful. White was then promoted to fifth position with a revised penalty time of 33-secs. Defending champion Jim Richards leads the event with a penalty time of 6-secs in a turbo Porsche 911.

Today's second leg comprises nine stages, starting at Launceston and finishing in Hobart with a total competitive distance of 75.40km.
