Ferraris will be out in force at Targa Great Barrier Reef

Up to 10 Ferraris will be part of the Targa Great Barrier Reef tarmac rally from August 30-September 1.

Millions of dollars worth of machinery will take part in the 16-stage rally in Tropical North Queensland that includes a variety of models from a 488 GTB, a 488 Spider to an 812 SF and Portofino.

The Ferraris will be on display at the Cairns waterfront on the opening day of Targa Great Barrier Reef on August 30.

The Tour component of Targa allows participants to enjoy the tradition of tarmac rallying without the pressure of timed competition across the stages.

It is designed for drivers to enjoy their machines on closed public roads in a safe and controlled environment where they can experience the thrill of their cars on the same route as the competition component of Targa.

“Customers can really explore the true performance of their Ferraris in a safe and controlled environment however it does get to test the ponies under the bonnet,” Ferrari Australasia chief executive Herbert Appleroth said.

“It has to be the Ferrari experience which includes the best food, the best wine and high levels of service and that is what an official Ferrari event can bring.

“We say our key performance indicator is the size of the smiles and if we really do our job well then Ferrari owners will go away not only having a great time they will probably form lifelong friendships with other Ferrari owners.”

The Ferrari Tour will include experienced drivers as the leaders who will be at the front of the group through the various stages along the acclaimed roads around the Cairns region and the Atherton Tablelands.
