Targa High Country to Remain a Three Day Event in 2018

In spite of wrapping up the 27th Targa Tasmania and working tirelessly on the inaugural Targa Great Barrier Reef, we have also been focusing on how we could continue to deliver a three day event, at Targa High Country.

With numerous challenges in the region to manage, including average speeds and general road condition, we had felt that a return to the old two day format was our only option for 2018.

But, inspired by many of our competitors and all of the stakeholders, we have revisited all of the available options to us, which has lead us to excitingly announce today that we will be able to again deliver a three day event this year.

Even more exciting is that it may even include some brand new Targa stages, never used before. We are just ticking some final boxes on the course and are aiming to release this in the weeks ahead, so watch this space.

For now though, please prepare for yet another three day course in 2018.

But wait, there is more……………..

Whilst no final decision had been made on the Mansfield Street Stage, perception and rumour has persisted that it was not going to be in the event this year. We have been exploring all options to ensure that it could continue to be, so with this now completed, we are also excited to announce today that the Mansfield Street Stage will go ahead for the 9th time this year and will actually be 400 metres longer than the 2017 version. At 4.6km, it will now only be 200 metres shorter than the famous, George Town Super Street Stage.

To enable the growth of Targafest held in conjunction with the Mansfield Street Stage, whilst ensuring that the stage continues to meet international standards, a revised route has been designed that will see changes to how the stage runs through Mansfield itself. The start and finish sections will remain the same.

This will in turn free up the main part of Mansfield, to expand and freshen up Targafest, along with starting it earlier in the day and thus deliver a better festival for all those who attend. As for the stage itself, it removes some areas of concern in recent years and delivers to competitors, the trickiest and most challenging stage that has been run, along with lowering average speeds for the stage.

In all, fantastic news for everyone involved in Targa High Country and we wanted to say thanks to all of those valued customers who provided us with positive input and some great ideas, to ensure that Targa High Country remains the event that everyone loves.

We look forward to announcing the full course for this year’s Targa High Country in the weeks ahead.
