SKELTA SHINES AT TARGA TASMANIA

The Queensland designed and built Skelta G-Force, being driven by Tooowoomba's Ray Vandersee, was head and shoulders above the opposition on day two of Targa Tasmania winning four outright stages of the opening eight and clearing a further two.

The bitter sweet reality that Vandersee's self designed sports car may have been capable of taking overall honours this year has been well and truly rammed home today.

Despite being out of contention for overall spoils after rear suspension dramas yesterday, the Queenslander has delivered on his promise to maintain an assault like approach.

Prior to the lunch break there were five stages completed with Vandersee and Adelaide co-driver Jahmeil Taylor nailing two outright successes (Weldborough Pass Long, St Mary's Pass), coupled with a clearing of the Legerwood stage under base time and an equal second on Moorina.

Those efforts proved a prelude to a total domination this afternoon where the duo has mastered quickest times at Elephant Pass and Cranbrook, plus clearing the base time at Triabunna.

Undefeated across five straight stages has the team in great spirits as they go into tonight's historic first ever night-time Targa Tasmania stage at Glenorchy.
