Vale Brian Reed

16-Dec-2016  Alice McKenzie

It is with great sadness that we have learned today of the sudden passing of Brian `Brique’ Reed last night. One of the original legends of Targa Tasmania, Brian, along with close friend John Emery, were very well known at Targa Tasmania for their quick-witted humour and in depth knowledge of the myriad of cars that made up the field in commentating at each start and finish of the event. After a nine year absence from the microphone, Brian and John returned to Targa Tasmania earlier this year to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary running of the event, seeing the cars off once again at the Official Start in their traditional green Targa blazers and sharing their fantastic stories with the Targa family at various functions.

 Brian will be sadly missed by everyone in the Targa family and we wish to pass on our sincere condolences to Brian’s family and friends.

Targa Tasmania 17 Course

16-Dec-2016  Alice McKenzie

The 2017 Targa Tasmania course will go down in the events history as the most unique course ever run due to the presence of Anzac Day falling on Day 2, instead of the traditional opening day of the event, as it did in 2006. With the change to a Monday to Saturday format in 2015, that was welcomed by all competitors, the course needs to be configured around this and the obvious need to respect the Tasmanian public on this important day of remembrance, by not closing a myriad of roads normally associated with a full day of Targa Tasmania.
