Close snatches lead in final stage

Melbourne driver, Matt Close, leads the GT2 class in the 25th running of Targa Tasmania after seeing off the challenge of reigning champion, Jason White, on day two of the six day event.

Driving a Porsche GT3, Close finished the day two seconds in front after a battle that saw the lead change several times throughout the day’s seven stages.

Multiple winner Jason White, in a brand new Dodge Viper, held an eight second GT2 advantage before the final stage of the day, but Close flew through the twisty stage to snatch back the lead.
