Targa Tasmania 2019 Spectator Guide

With more than 33 competitive stages covering an overall total distance of 2000km, there are a veritable endless choice of spectator vantage points at Targa Tasmania from April 29 to May 4.

As the time-honoured tarmac rally sweeps the length and breadth of the state, we have compiled an exhaustive Spectator’s Guide that covers everything you need to know to help you safely enjoy the event.

The guide gives you a host of information including a rundown of the order the various categories within the event will begin.

Spectators are in for a real treat over the six-day event with 265 cars ranging from a 1938 Dodge Speedster Special to present-day road-going supercars including Dodge Vipers and Porsches.

The sheer volume and range of machinery essentially provides a rolling automotive museum to reaches most parts of Tasmania, ensuring that there is something to admire and follow for all spectators.

At the start of each stage the Targa Tour cars (slowest) will be waved off first while the outright competitors (fastest) are the last class to get underway.

A stage-by-stage breakdown will give you an insight on where you can safely position yourself and offer tips on how to leave a stage before the roads are reopened.

An example to help maximise your experience is to find a junction or intersecting road where you can either arrive or leave before the stage ends.

Alternatively you need to be in place before any particular road is closed and be mindful that you may not be able to leave for quite a few hours until officials reopen the roads.

Everything from road closure times, maps and an explanation of what the coloured safety tapes mean are included in the guide.

There are also crucial tips on where you can best position yourself and remain safe on the stages and what locations are strictly off limits.

The guide is a must for enthusiasts who are keen to sample live six days of some of the hottest tarmac rally action in the world.

Importantly Targa Tasmania officials and police will not allow a stage to start if spectators are not deemed to be in a safe location.
