Please enjoy a few of UMPH's photos from the Longley stage of Targa Tasmania's 25th anniversary event.  

An Alfa Giulietta

A big Mercedes coupe.

An early Porsche.

A Cortina GT.

An XR or XT GT Falcon.

An HR Holden overtakes Greg Crick in his Honda NSX.

A 911.

An early Porsche.

One of two identical Corolla coupes from the Japanese team.
The Japanese team's 3rd car - a Mitsubishi Lancer coupe.
Aussie muscle:  an HT Monaro.

Another 911.


A Lotus Elan.

An early Citroen.

An Alfa Spyder.

An early Volvo.

A Ford Galaxy.

A local legend:  A Fiat 850 Abarth replica. 

One of (or the?) oldest entrants, this 1938 Dodge Speedster won its class.

A Triumph TR3.

A Devilish 911.

Another classic 911.

A beautiful Alfa 105.

A lovely Renault Alpine.

Ideas as to what this is, anyone?

A Datsun P510.

Possibly a Nissan Sylvia.

A BMW 2002.

Its twin.

A fabulous Ford Zephyr.

A Mazda 323.

A GTR Torana.

A Fiat 131.

A Ford Anglia.

A GTR XU-1 Torana.

A classic FJ Holden.


A Mid-70s Corolla coupe.

A colourful BMW 2002.

Another early Volvo.

A Triumph.

An Austin A40.

This Hillman Imp was particularly quick.

A GT4 Celica.

A Mini Cooper S.

A Series I RX7.

Does anyone know if this is a Lotus Elan?  Looks like one but where are the pop-up headlights?

More Aussie muscle:  a second HT Monaro.

A later RX7.

A TR7 V8 or a TR8 (not sure what the difference is).

A 944.

Fist pumpin' fun!  A magnificent Mustang.

Another 944.

For UMPH, this Aston Martin was car of the day.
A 914 Porsche.

Another 911.

A 3 Series BMW.

They are popular.

With good reason.

A later RX7.

An Evo-something Lancer.

It's probably fair to say that classic 911s are the mainstay of the Targa Tasmania fleet.

The car that ruined Bathurst: a Ford Sierra Cosworth.

Another very tidy GTR XU-1.

A later-model Commodore.

An absolute ripper HQ Monaro.

A hot Renault overtakes an R8 Audi.

Another TR7 / 8.

Ford Australia's answer to the Monaro: an XC Cobra.

This excellent 1963 Jensen was beaten to 1st place by a Porsche by a mere minute.

A big cat.

A couple of current Porsches going for it.

It's probably enough to make Brockie fans cry!

A bit of action in the newer classes.

Love this SLR 5000 Torana.

Outright winners:  Matt Close and Cameron Reeves' 911.  Well done, men!  A well-deserved win after 12 attempts.
