Was a bit of a shit fight to get them to fit because the reigers stick out more than the stock shocks and rubbed on the rims.

Unofficially heard of a fatality on the first stage today. Very sad news....also tragic given the first few normally have very achievable base times to allow you to get your eye in. Condolences to all.

Tough start for new event director Stuart Benson.

Fatality hits first competitive stage of Targa Tasmania - Speedcafe ... a bit more official.

RIP. Thoughts go out to all involved.

RIP Driver, Sad to hear!

Strange story and very off topic but the other person killed at targa 15 odd years ago shares his name with my father, my mother was distraught when she found out Ian Johnson had passed away as my old man was running an LJ XU1 in that event!

^^^^ Fark. That would be a terrible moment until you got the truth. No doubt the truth was a little slower traveling without widespread mobiles and internet access.

I remember that. Worried a lot of people that day

Condolences to the drivers family and friends.
