Here Are The Top Five Reasons To Not Do A Targa Rally

05-Dec-2018  Brittany Smith

You’ve been warned!

The fact that you can do it legally is almost seemingly absurd. But that’s exactly what Targa events in Australia have offered for years. A chance to race along some of our great nation’s best roads legally and, more importantly, safely.
