Cars And Drivers at Targa Tasmania – Funny Moments

Be a share millionaire! Tell the world!

Racing Car Drivers are a different Breed!

Today was our last day of pimping the Mazda MX5 around Tasmania – a car which has been a great drive, and hence it was also the last day of the Targa Tasmania. I’ll write something about the MX5 a bit later that won’t be too serious!

After having a few outstanding Tasmanian beers the night before, it was awesome that today was a relatively slack day driving wise. There was a lot of activity happening in Hobart, and a buzz awaiting the arrival of the Targa Tasmania fleet.

This created a great opportunity to check out the lunch break at nearby New Norfolk – which was basically a petrol heads most erotic dream, with millions of dollars worth of Cars and Drivers in the one place:

Once again, say hi to Mazda and Mazda Motorsport on TwitterFacebook and Youtube.

The Drive to New Norfolk

Just outside of New Norfolk, there is a big stump of one of the tallest trees in the world – the Mountain Ash, or Eucalyptus regnans for the botanists out there.

This specimen would make a few toothpicks:

Racing Car Driver interviews

I even managed to catch up with two legends of Australian Motor Sport – Jim Richards and Dick Johnson – who has driven for Mazda previously.

This interview includes a description of some funny moments that happen on the Targa Tasmania including being ‘flashed’ at by female spectators on the side of the road.

Here it is:


Well that’s it from me from blogging on the road, but there’s a lot of other funny material generated from this great trip, so stay tuned for more updates.

    Ha ha! I’m surprised Dick Johnson managed to stay on the road when he was ‘flashed’! I know this has happened to other drivers and they’ve lost races because of it!
