Rullo and Mar­quet claim Targa hon­ours

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

PETER Rullo, fa­ther of emerg­ing V8 driver Alex, and Jimmy Mar­quet were Targa West rally win­ners at the week­end.

The pair won the Com­pe­ti­tion Mod­ern cat­e­gory and out­right.

Will White and Matthew Thomp­son in an EVO 9 were once again brides­maids in this event, com­ing in sec­ond.

The elu­sive win was taken from them when a turbo pipe came off, cost­ing them close to a minute.

A speed­ing in­fringe­ment leav­ing a der­e­stric­tion zone a frac­tion too early also cost them a chance of win­ning.

Mark Greenham and Steph Ester­bauer were third in their EVO.

Mark Dob­son and Nigel Jones won the Com­pe­ti­tion Clas­sic cat­e­gory in their TR7.

Nick Mitic and Ge­off Duck­worth in their Lo­tus Aus­tralia 220 Cup Lo­tus con­vinc­ingly won the Chal­lenge class by more than six min­utes.
