Targa Tasmania 2017 Course


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.

 In order to achieve all of these requirements, the field will head to the East Coast on the opening day of the event for the first time. Naturally, going straight the famous Sideling stage would be a big ask of all those competing, so the field will head to Kayena to `shake out the cobwebs’ before tackling the pass roads to St. Helens.

Anzac Day will see a `traditional Prologue style’ day with the field leaving the Silverdome later in the morning, to enable anyone wishing to attend a dawn service being able to do so, and heading to George Town for lunch and an afternoon run around the famous stage that will be `uncleanable’ as it has been in recent years.

The course route remains the same as 2016 from Wednesday with another big night planned in Burnie.

The course will throw up a whole new set of challenges for everyone, with those getting on their game early sure to make some inroads into their fellow competitors, who in turn will need to take up the chase from Wednesday, all the way to the finish line on Saturday. As was the case in 2016, the finish will again be held at Princes Wharf 1, after the massive success of this year’s finish, right beside Salamanca Market.
