Near-misses on Targa day two

SLIPPERY conditions have caused several near-misses on day two of Targa Tasmania.

At least four cars crashed out of the 200-strong field as the tarmac rally wound its way through eight stages in the state's North-East. All crews escaped without injury.

Two cars rolled over, including Peter Avery's Mitsubishi Evo 8.

Avery lost control on the Elephants Pass stage, rolling off the road and into the bush.

The car came to rest upright, with the driver and his navigator, Trent Avery, emerging with barely a scratch.

The Targa recovery crew had to use a chainsaw to free the badly damaged vehicle.

Today's racing, which began in Rossarden, was due to wind up with the traditional Longford street stage this afternoon.

The accident-prone day follows an event opening marred by tragedy.

Newcastle driver John Mansell, 71, died yesterday when the Porsche Cayman he was driving hit a tree near Deloraine.

Tristan Catford, Mr Mansell's 26-year-old navigator, was seriously injured in the crash.
