Claiming their fourth event win in as many years, this year’s Targa New Zealand winners, Patumahoe’s Glenn Inkster and co-driver Spencer Winn from Howick, have matched the consecutive event record of previous event ‘King’ Tony Quinn and his co-driver Naomi Tillett.
The pair did it in some style this year too. In their Mitsubishi Evo 8, the duo won the lion’s share of the 28 closed special stages, while successfully managing a turbo manifold issue which twice threatened to see them parked at the side of the road.
Inkster and Winn still have one more win to match circuit-owning entrepreneur Quinn’s total (five). Next year’s race is set to begin in March.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
