Targa High Country 2018 Entries are now open

Targa High Country becomes the final round of the new CAMS Australian Targa Championship in 2018 with the event going `Back to the Future’ later this year.

A combination of increasing challenges on the available roads around Euroa in relation to average speeds and general road conditions, along with a large amount of comments being provided via the competitor survey as to their vision for the event, we have made the decision to drop the Friday leg to Euroa and revert the event back to its original two day format used from its inception in 2010 until 2014. 

The original course included an extra stage to Whitfield and back on the Saturday, so these will be re-introduced into the event to maintain competitive kilometres, whilst drastically reducing the amount of touring kilometres required to get to Euroa and back to Mt Buller. 

This change will provide cost savings for competitor’s, whilst not reducing the thrills and high level competition that Targa High Country has become renowned for. The two runs up the fantastic Mt. Buller (one on each day) will remain a key feature of the event along with the second longest Targa stage in the country between Jamieson and Eildon on the Sunday. 

As a key part of the Championship, a presentation dinner will be introduced on the Sunday night (11th) for the first time to acknowledge and applaud all of our inaugural winners, so make sure you stay up on Mt. Buller on the Sunday night to enjoy a great night out with the Targa family. 

Entries are now open, with Early Bird discounts in place until 30th June, so be sure to get your entry in on or before this date to secure your discount. 

There are many more exciting innovations to be announced for the 9th running of Targa High Country as we get ever closer to the 10th Anniversary in 2019 of Australia’s second largest tarmac rally.

Christmas Closure Dates

Targa Australia Offices will be closed from Friday 21st December, 2018 and re-opening Monday 7th January, 2019.

2018 was a very big year for the Targa family, a year that included our first brand new event since 2010 in Targa Great Barrier Reef, which was a massive success in its first year. 

We would like to wish all of our loyal customers, sponsors and officials a very joyous and safe Christmas and New Year period.

We look forward to seeing you all at a Targa Australia event in 2019.

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!
