Tony Quinn Wins His Fifth Targa New Zealand

Tony Quinn and Naomi Tillett have been a potent combo in targas downunder the last several years.  The VIP Petfoods sponsored Nissan GT-R just won this years Targa New Zealand, his fifth time winning. Tony mentioned if he won this year the GT-R would be headed for retirement.  After four wins in a row in a GT-R, the question would be, new GT-R, or another car?

Record-setting Targa New Zealand tarmac motor rally winner Tony Quinn said before this year's event that if he and co-driver Naomi Tillett won it the sleek black Nissan GT-R35 the pair have shared for the past four years was heading to his new motor museum in Cromwell.
That mission was accomplished today in Havelock North, the Quinn/Tillett GT-R crossing the finish line for consecutive win number four - and Quinn's fifth - over 10 minutes ahead of Auckland Mitsubishi Evo duo Jason Gill and Malcolm Read.
