The Forklift Power Solutions all-female team of Samantha Stevens and Claire Ryan has claimed the Early Modern title in the Australian Tarmac Championship with an impressive result in the final round at Targa Tasmania last week.

One of the toughest road challenges in the world, the Targa Tasmania tarmac rally, covers 2000km of twisting tarmac with over a quarter of that distance as competitive kilometres. Of the 260 cars that started the six-day rally, many fell victim to mechanical and human error, and 56 cars did not make the official finish in that Tasmanian capital of Hobart.
