CAMS Australian Targa Championship returns in 2018

THE LARGEST motor sport championship in the country returns in 2018 with all eight Targa competitions being included to give all Targa competitors a championship to compete in.  Another major first will see the introduction of two OVERALLChampionships that will be recognised as CAMS National Championships.  

One will cover the Early Modern, GT2 and GT4 competitions and the winners will be crowned the CAMS Australian Targa Champions.  The other will cover Classic and Classic GT competitions and the winners will be crowned the CAMS Australian Targa Classic Champions, with both winning teams being invited to the CAMS National Awards dinner each year to receive their accolades, alongside the winners of the Australian Rally Championship and the Supercars Championship.

It is great news for Targa and tarmac rallying competitors across the country.  To finally be recognised in this way will inspire many competitors to achieve this goal and will surely see the introduction of many new manufacturers, along with increased involvement from our current manufacturers, in the years ahead.

The Championship will be contested over four events, yes four, with a soon to be announced event added to Targa North West, Targa Tasmania and a final round at Targa High Country.  The points table to be used in 2018 will be released in the weeks ahead.

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.
