Targa Tas waterfront finish celebrations at Mac 2

01-Sep-2014  Tracey Button

Continuing the revamp of the Targa Tasmania course for 2015, the official finish of the classic tarmac rally has been moved to Hobart’s waterfront, maximising crowd engagement with a new Saturday afternoon finish.

For the past 21 years the event has concluded at Wrest Point on the Sunday, but will now be at the Macquarie 2 terminal, right in the historic heart of the city.

Event Director, Mark Perry, is excited by what the new arrangements will mean to the event, and the city.

“This is a real win-win situation,” Perry said. “Our event and all the participants will enjoy a finish in the brilliantly refurbished venue, and I believe it is great for the city to be able to bring the cars and the excitement to the people in this major tourism precinct.”

In it’s 24th running, Targa Tasmania will undergo the biggest changes for a decade, including the re-introduction of stages south of Hobart not used since 2007.

The event will now start in Launceston on a Monday (April 27) and run for six days, finishing on a Saturday afternoon (May 2) for the first time. The southern loop stages in the Huon Valley were part of every Targa Tasmania course for the event’s first 16 years, and will precede the finish at Macquarie 2 on the Saturday.
