The Targa Tasmania Experience

This isn’t the story from the 25th running of the Targa Tasmania rally that I ever hoped to write. In my mind, I was going to recount the experience of racing along the legendary 51km Mt Arrowsmith stage, of how my friend Guy’s Alfa 2600 sounds going up The Sideling…

My iPhone alarm buzzing at 6am on a Monday morning is an all too familiar disturbance. That happy-go-lucky Marimba tone is anything but when it’s still dark outside, and it usually elicits a mixed Pavlovian response of emotion that ranges from anger, to mourning the loss of being asleep, and…
