Siddins has victory in sight

Jon and Gina Siddins will take a five minute lead into the final day of Targa Tasmania, after a consolidating day in their 1970 Datsun 240Z.

Beginning the day five minutes and nine seconds clear of Keith and Mary Callinan in a 1977 Ford RS 1800, Siddins maintained that lead throughout Day 5, eventually extending the margin by a further 11 seconds.

Mick Downey, driving a 1977 Holden Torana, moved up two places today into third position.

Downey holds a slender 20 second lead over fourth placed Barry Faux in a 1985 Mazda RX-7, which will make for fabulous viewing for spectators as they battle for a podium place in Shannons Classic GT.
