“The Zig Zag is a great stage, but it’s one of those stages where you can lose a rally, but you can’t win a rally and it’s not forgiving if you make a mistake,” Gunson said.“The car is going quite well, just a couple of little fuel issues with the carburettor. But we’re having a fun battle with the Bray brothers.” Challenge Modern / Classic The Zig Zag SS8 caused a few head aches for the Challenge competitors with the extremely tight hairpin bends. In their 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI, rookies Nick Bailey and Kyle O’Neil lead after Leg 1 by 9 seconds over Sharon Gunson and Helen Lunsmann of GTI Girls Racing in a 2001 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 7. Bailey said his goal is to finish Quit Targa West. “I stuffed up the Zig Zag and turned too early. But it’s all part of the experience and I’m enjoying it,” Bailey said. “I hate the Zig Zag!” Sharon Gunson said. “I had to do a three point turn to get around the first hairpin and then stalled it and lost about ten seconds, it was a bit of a nightmare. It’s still early days, so I’m not worried about the time so much,” said the driver of the event’s only all-female team.
