Further statement from TARGA Australia

Sadly there has been double fatality after a crash on the Cygnet stage of TARGA Tasmania.

A 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (Car 902) hit a tree 6.2 kilometres into the stage at approximately 11:45 this morning. 

Medical and emergency teams were immediately dispatched to attend the scene of the accident but were unable to revive both the driver Leigh Mundy, and co-driver Dennis Neagle, who died at the scene.

The stages were downgraded at 12:17 to touring only and competitors returned to the finish at PW1 in Hobart.

Targa Australia CEO, Mark Perry, said:

“This has been a devastating few days for the Targa family.

Today our thoughts and deepest condolences go to Leigh and Dennis’ family and friends.

Both loved Targa and we knew them so well, which makes their passing so difficult for everyone in our community.

They will be sorely missed by us all.”

As this is now a coronial matter, there will be no further statement from Targa Australia.
