Re­built and ready to roll

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

IT was a close call but Bi­bra Lake’s Si­mon Gun­son says he and co-driver Jur­gen Lunsmann will be ready for this week’s Targa West tar­mac rally.

The pair were push­ing it when they de­cided to build a replica 1971 Ford Capri Per­ana just two months out from the event’s first stage.

Gun­son ad­mit­ted he was un­sure how the car would per­form.

“The car has only been lightly tested at a cou­ple of sprint events, so hasn’t had its full baptism yet,” he said.

Start­ing Thurs­day, com­peti­tors will tackle 898km of track through stages in Wan­neroo, Malaga, White­man Park, Kala­munda, Toodyay, Lower Chit­ter­ing, Bulls­brook and Perth city.
