VALE PAUL DARKO

Paul Darko has played a key role in motorsport in Tasmania for well over 30 years. He was a regular attendee at the various tracks and events around Tasmania, as well as many on the mainland, and was always happy to take on any role or position asked of him. One of his main motorsport loves was Targa! 
Over the years that Targa has been in existence, Paul has not only volunteered for almost every position going, he was responsible for recruiting, training and managing many of the past and present officials we cherish and rely on to make Targa what it is.

His involvement and friendship with the late John Large and Ken Roddam helped fashion what is now a world recognised and coveted event. From manning a road block, to managing parking of 300 plus cars in the Silverdome for our 20th Anniversary, Paul was more than capable, proud of his work and always available for a chat.

His engaging manner and down to earth nature meant that his friendships with both officials and competitors were heartfelt and everlasting.

Paul not only leaves behind his biological family, but a Targa family of hundreds of staff, volunteers and competitors that will also miss him greatly.
