Targa High Country 2012 - video screencap

Australia's Targa High Country has officially come to a close, with Tony Quinn and his Nissan GT-R taking the gold overall. Our friends at Targa News have whipped up a few quick videos following the competitors through the first few days of over-the-road racing. As you may recall, Jason White won last year with a dramatic sprint up Mt. Buller in his Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo. With flames licking at the the rear valance, White closed the gap on his nearest rival and took the lead. This year, a faulty front differential kept White from the podium in the RDA Brakes Modern class.

All told, three of the top five finishers sat behind the wheel of a Nissan GT-R, with second place falling to Matt and Casey Close in their Audi TT RS. Jim Richards and Barry Oliver fleshed out the top three in their Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Of course, we're fans of classics like the Ferrari 308 and FC Mazda RX-7 models bashing about.

You can watch the Targa High Country prologue as well as the first and second days of competition in the videos below.
