Local hope, Steve Glenney, driving a 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, has upstaged his more fancied rivals by setting the fastest time at the prologue stage at Supaloc Targa Adelaide.

He will now take the top seeding into the four-day event that now heads to the surrounding hills before finishing back in the city on Sunday afternoon.

Glenney beat the Lamborghini Gallardo of fellow South Australian, Kevin Weeks, by 2.8 seconds around the 3.25 kilometre course, with another Lamborghini, driven by reigning Australian Champion Jason White, back in third, a further 2.3 seconds back.

Finishing second outright in their ex Ralliart Evo 9, Matt Selley and co-driver Hamish McKendrick are delighted with the result of their first full test of a new competition vehicle at last weekend’s Adelaide Hills Tarmac Rally.

“We attempted to run the car in January at Targa Wrest Point but an engine failure only 13 kms into the first stage brought that to an abrupt end,” said Matt.

“The team have spent weeks since then getting the car to where we want it to be and I reckon we are nearly there.”
