Targa High Country Early Bird pricing closes this Friday the 17th April.  
Dates 6 - 8 November 2015 

Targa High Country was first run in 2010 and now attracts an average field of 200 entries due to its challenging yet scenic roads, as well as being such an easily accessible region.
 Based less than 3 hours from Melbourne, Targa High Country is based on top of Victoria's most popular Ski Resort, Mt Buller, some 1,800 meters above sea level. In summer the road to the summit masquerades as one of the most exciting hill climbs in the country and is the gateway to the other rally stages.

In 2015, this event will be held over 3 full days and takes in 22 stages, including the ever-popular Mansfield town stage through the streets of Mansfield centre in front of thousands of fans. Having this event based on Mt Buller offers a unique experience, both on the course and on the mountain.

TIM JONES MEMORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD

27-Mar-2015  Alice McKenzie

With the tragic passing of Tim Jones from Perfect Prints, it has been agreed that in honour of Tim’s incredible contribution to Targa Tasmania that we will be introducing an annual photography award to be presented at the Targa Tasmania Presentation Dinner each year. The Tim Jones Memorial Photography Award will be presented to the photographer who we feel has captured the essence and spirit of Targa Tasmania. This will be open to all photographers, amateur and professional, and doesn’t necessarily have to be an image of a Targa car, with a myriad of moments happening during the event that capture the spirit of the event. In terms of competitor images; it has also been agreed that we will not be entering into another exclusive photographer agreement for all of our events, including Targa Tasmania. This will mean that all photographers are free to photograph the events and commercialise their images as they choose. We will be welcoming photographers to request space at the Presentation Dinner to sell their images to competitors as Perfect Prints have done for the last 23 years, which will give competitors greater choice and an option to arrange their own photographer if they choose. We believe this structure will inherently bring more photographers to our events and see Targa images receive wider distribution, which in turn will increase the events profile.
