LaFerrari set to wow car lovers

Thousands of car enthusiasts are set to flock to the annual Targa Expo this Sunday night and they are set for a special treat in 2017 with the limited production LaFerrari on display to visitors for the one night only.

 


As well as the exotic Ferrari, the whole of the Targa field will be on display when the doors open at the Silverdome at 6pm. Entry is $10 with children under 12 free.

 

The car is Ferrari’s first ever production car to be equipped with the F1-derived hybrid solution, and will be part of a number of Ferraris that will be making the trip to Targa this year.

 

The cars of Targa will also be ready for viewing at a number of Targafest events scheduled across the state during the Targa week, starting with the return of the field to the streets of Launceston on Monday. This free event set to draw a big crowd into George Street in the city’s CBD where festivities will commence at 6:00pm and run through until 8:00pm.

 

Following the outstanding success in 2016, Burnie will once again play host to Targafest this year on Wednesday.

 

Competitors will stay overnight in that city and fans will have the chance to check out all the cars and meet the drivers at the Marine Terrace car park between 6:00pm-9:00pm.

                 

Fans in the state’s south won’t miss out either, as PW1 on Hobart’s waterfront will host Targafest on Friday night, 28th April, with entry at $15 with children under 12 free.

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

5. You will become addicted

This is another big gap in the documentation from Targa Australia, nowhere does it warn you about this and it will be hard for many to avoid. Although, once you get a taste for the amazing twisty closed roads, being part of a large motorsport event, drooling over lots of cars, getting sore cheeks from smiling too much and getting that little taste of what race drivers get to enjoy….you will most likely become addicted and want to do it again. You’ve been warned!

The Porsche Targa High Country Tour in a 718 Cayman GTS

Sports cars are designed to be driven hard. Foot to the floor, tyres gripping, the engine singing, and you don’t even glance at the speedometer. Try doing that on a public road, though, and say goodbye to your car and licence. But what if you could do all that legally? The Targa Australia rally series is just that.

CarAdvice was invited to the Porsche Targa High Country Tour this year to drive the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS around Mount Buller, Mansfield, and Eildon over three days.
