Updated Targa FAQ's

We have recently updated our Frequently Asked Questions to help get a better understanding of Targa events.

This year, we have seen a drastic rise in new comers & first timers, especially with the introduction of Targa Great Barrier Reef. We are hoping these will make the process a little easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I enter without a navigator?

Targa Australia proudly run team events.  As such, a crew of both driver and co-driver/navigator is required for all cars. 

Do I need a roll cage?

Not necessarily. A roll cage is required for full competition crews and GT Sports Trophy competitors. To participate in Tour or TSD Trophy categories a roll cage is not required.  A detailed explanation can be found in our Technical Regulations located on our website.

Do I need a helmet?

A helmet is required for all competitors except Tour crews.  The only time a helmet is required for Tour is if the crew are participating in a convertible with the roof down, or an open car.

What category would be best for me?

It is best to read the Sporting Regulations, located on our website, to ascertain which category would best suit your crew and vehicle.  From a “spirited” drive on our magnificent closed road stages with a Tour group, through to the fast-paced thrill of full competition, there is sure to be a category to suit everyone. To read our event categories click here.

Can I pay in instalments?

Yes, you may pay in instalments.  We require an initial deposit to secure your entry, then you may pay off the entry fee as best suits your needs.
