VICTORIAN driver Matt Close has taken the prized Showroom class title at Targa High Country after a brilliant drive in his 2015 Porsche GT3.
Close and co-driver Cameron Reeves stormed into the lead on the second of the three days, extending that advantage over the 2014 McLaren 650S of Tony Quinn to eventually win the new glamour class by two minutes and 32 seconds.
The 4WD Showroom competition was taken out by West Australian Stewart Liddle, while another Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, in the hands of Toby Gill, won the Modern category.
In one of the drives of the event, Alan Roe took the Early Modern honours in his Lancer Evo 6.5, with Steve Glenney calling the notes.
Tasmanian Pete Nunn was the class of the field and convincingly won the Classic Outright competition in his 1985 Porsche 944 Turbo.
The final day of the Mt Buller based event was the toughest of the three.
