Porsche’s coverage of Walter Rohrl Rally Porsche on Targa Tasmania has started with two videos: a quick report from the start line, and a stage-by-stage account of how the contenders are playing themselves in.
Targa regulars Rex Broadbent and Jim Richards, both multiple winners in Porsche cars, finished the first day 7th and 8th in their respective categories. Former World Champion, Walter Röhrl and co-driver Christian Geistdorfer finished joint 4th in their 911 SC. The videos show two old friends on a proper road trip in a wicked 911 – just too cool.

It’s great to see Walter rekindling his relationship with this classic 911 on a rally event, and not on some half-arsed marketing exercise to the end of the road in Austria. Targa Taz is worthy of such a huge effort from everyone at Porsche and the guys at the Porsche Museum. I hope it stays this positive for the best part of the next week.
