Catch up on the week that was with all five legs of the Australian version of the Targa Newfoundland. In usual Targa style, the racing was close, the weather was demanding, and the cars were inspiring.
Ultimately, Rex Broadbent and co-driver Chris Randell would take their fifth consecutive Classic Competition victory in their yellow 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. After 5 wins, Rex was quick with a smile and a cheeky offer to race in Europe, should anyone out there be looking for an aging Ozzie with the reflexes of a 20-year-old. Rex, with the usual Australian modesty, attributed his success to the reliability of the 911 platform. I can’t honestly say that these videos make me want a 911 any less, so watch them at your peril.
Video documentation of legs 2-5 is below, including plenty of Walter Röhrl and his 1981 911 SC.
