Mansfield to host the longest street stage in Targa High Country’s history!

15-Aug-2016  Brittany Smith

After last year’s much shortened street stage, all stakeholders have been working hard to create a stage for 2016 like nothing ever seen in Mansfield.  For the stage to be approved and then be successful, it needs to tick a myriad of boxes.  For competitors, we felt strongly that it must tick two key boxes; it needs to be a part of the competition and it must provide a suitable challenge.

03-Aug-2016  Alice McKenzie

Many of you would remember the happy and always smiling face of Natasha Deniese, who competed at Targa for many years, winning the Showroom competition in 2010 with Tony Warren.

 Natasha has a rare condition that has over many years severely impacted her health.
 A ray of hope exists through ground breaking treatment in the US so please help Natasha to raise the funds so she can make this potentially lifesaving trip to have this treatment that will hopefully see her be well enough again to compete in Targa in the future.

Targa Technical Regulations V2 update

08-Jun-2016  Alice McKenzie

As we do each year after Targa Tasmania, our Safety & Technical Team (STT) discuss any changes required to be implemented for the following year. As custodians of Targa Tasmania, it is in the interest of all to ensure that the event can continue in as safe a manner as possible. Furthermore, the event works tirelessly to ensure that it can meet and exceed the expectations of not only the local authorities but also the local communities, whose support is vital to the sustainability of the event. This process has been updated in the past 12 months to also include the recommendations from the Coronial Inquest and the provisions of the use of the CAMS Tarmac Rally Standing Regulations (TRSR), which were re-introduced to Targa this year.

 Please click the link to download the updated technical regulations to be used from Targa High Country later this year. Changes are highlighted in grey for easy reference.
