year old Perth race car ace Peter Major will pilot MOH Racing’s

Racing recently purchased an EVO 9 from Victorian Matthew Heskins.

car in this event and given this EVO is of the same pedigree as last
year’s winner and runner up, I think we have a real chance of a first
up victory” said Illman.

Jones becomes youngest ever winner of
Targa West

What a fitting end to Father’s
Day with 2008 QUIT Targa West’s Competition Modern winner, Steven Jones,
dedicating his win to his late father Warren Jones.

“I’d like to thank my dad for
everything he did for me. My old man is the reason I wanted this for so
long. He passed away when I was 17 and I’ve done this for him – I’ve
given him what he wanted!”

Perth’s Steven Jones has become the
youngest competitor to win QUIT Targa West, taking the honours in the
Competition Modern class ahead of Jim Richards (Porsche 911 GT2) and
Kevin Weeks (Lamborghini Superleggera).

Behind the wheel of a Nissan Skyline
GTR, 24-year-old Jones took the lead from Weeks on Saturday and held off
the far more experienced tarmac drivers over the ten stages run
today to win by 15 seconds.

Proving just how tough the QUIT Targa
West competition is, Jones is the third winner of the Modern Competition
class in the event’s four year history

Former World Rally Championship driver,
Alister McRae dominated the Competition Classic Class from the opening
stage of the rally. After 31 stages, McRae crossed the final stop
control with a total lead of 7minutes 27seconds, ahead of David Moir (Datsun
240Z) in second and Michael Miller (Holden VH SS Commodore) in third.

Kym Illman (Porsche 997 Turbo) took
honours in the Challenge Modern Class, only six seconds quicker than
second placed Simon Gunson (Ford F6 Typhoon).  Paul Davies (Holden
HDT VC Retro) finished in third.

Andy Van Kann (Toyota Levin), who was
joined by two Camp Quality nominated co-drivers, Brook Martinsen and
James Marquet, won the Challenge Classic Class, finishing an impressive
3minutes 47seconds ahead of Nick Rahimatulla (Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV 105
Series) in second. Martin Eyer (Triumph TR8) was third.
