The 2012 Targa Tasmania has officially come to a close, and while we were a long, long way from the action this year, YouTube closed the distance with a slew of day-end recaps aimed at keeping us up-to-date on the action. This year, Jason White took his Lamborghini Gallardo all the way to the top of the podium despite running into a tuning issue late in the event. Wet weather made for slippery conditions with low visibility more often than not, and more than a few competitors were forced to retire due to unintended departures from the course.

Day three saw some impressive driving from Sam Tapping and his Holden Commodore SS Ute. The duo ran down a total of three competitors on the same stage, including two Porsche 911 GT3 models. That's some impressive driving given the Ute's tail happy nature and the wet asphalt. Of course, there are plenty more highlights that are well worth your time. Scroll down to check out all five recap videos for yourself.

      Day 3 @ 2:47. What an understatement! Lucky buggers. Targa style races are fast becoming my all-time favourite form of racing!

      Pretty good highlights packages - thanks for that :-) To me, the end of Targa Tasmania means the countdown to Targa West has begun!
