Burnie Council backs newest Targa rally
Tasmania’s newest motorsport event, Targa Hellyer Gorge, has received a major boost with Burnie City Council signing on as the event’s major partner.
Burnie City Council has committed a significant amount of sponsorship for the inaugural Targa Hellyer Gorge, to be held on February 7.
The brand new event is designed to give first time drivers a taste of real Targa competition on one of Targa's most legendary stages, enabling them to learn what it takes to tackle the demanding week-long Targa Tasmania (27
April – 2 May, 2015).
It has also attracted more experienced competitors keen for a pre-Targa Tasmania hit out.
“Burnie City Council welcomes this new event and is very pleased to be a sponsor of the 2015 Targa Hellyer Gorge event.” Mayor Anita Dow said.
“We acknowledge the economic and community benefits this event will bring to our vibrant city.”
