About Targa

With a proud history dating back to 1992, our reputation has been built on our ability to deliver high quality, professional tarmac rally events and driving experiences in unique and iconic Australian destinations. TARGA gives you closed roads, greater distance and an extraordinary sense of achievement.

We bring energy and excitement to everything we do, and consistently meet all required international safety standards. We show the utmost respect to our people, partners and customers and don’t compromise on this, no matter what. 

TARGA deliver both competitive races and non-competitive touring events, sanctioned by Australia’s peak motor racing authority Motorsport Australia. TARGA includes tarmac rally events in Victoria’s High Country, Cairns in Far North Queensland and the longest and hardest tarmac rally in the world, in Tasmania.

Whether you’re entering for the ultimate tarmac rush, an adrenaline-fuelled drive with your partner and friends, or to fulfil your competitive streak, TARGA offers a once in a lifetime experience.

The competition

TARGA is a genuine, red-blooded motorsport event. It is a tarmac rally designed for the true motoring enthusiast.

A tarmac rally is a unique form of motorsport where purpose-built rally cars compete on sealed roads closed for competition. Starting at 30-second intervals, cars race against the clock with the winner being the fastest car over all stages.

Each TARGA event makes up the Motorsport Australia TARGA Championship, which is a championship like no other. With over 250 different cars taking part and including more than 20 manufacturers, it is the country’s largest championship.

The Tour

Based in some of Australia’s premier driving and tourism destinations, TARGA tours are a complete adventure – packed with great roads, fine food and beverages, high-quality restaurants and accommodation as well as the beautiful scenery.

In the TARGA Tour, participants experience a true tarmac rally but in a noncompetitive, non-timed format, and without the need to modify your car. Enjoying the same challenging, closed-road stages as the competition cars, the Tour delivers the exhilaration of driving your car as it was designed, without the pressure of competition, on some of the country’s best and most exciting roads.

The TARGA Tour is available as entry-only leaving you to decide on accommodation and dining options, or as a package which is a complete travel experience, comprised of your entry, preferred accommodation package and dining, all pre-booked on your behalf.
