Mansfield to host super Targa stage

The very nature of Targa events usually means that the competitive stages are held in remote regions, far away from the eager eyes of spectators
Targa High Country, however, offers spectators the best of both worlds. Saturday and Sunday’s stages head over the mountain ranges to Whitfield and Eildon, while Friday afternoon (November 8) provides the event’s most popular stage – right through the heart of the beautiful Victorian high country town of Mansfield.

Closing the main street of any regional centre is not easy, but Targa High Country organisers have again worked closely with the Mansfield Shire, VicRoads and the Victoria Police to enable the three-kilometre stage to open the event.

While the stage itself is a prologue and won’t count towards the overall results of the rally, it’s a perfect chance for competitors to showcase their cars, their driving style and their sponsors, while also giving the thousands of rally fans their best look at the cars in action.

Starting in Rowe Street, the stage winds its way through the centre of Mansfield, taking in Murphy, Hunter, Chenery, Ailsa and Collopy streets, before a fast blast down High Street – Mansfield’s main street.

Here, spectators line the footpaths and clamber onto balconies and up any available vantage point to see the cars head past the shops, before braking hard and turning left at the roundabout, into Highett Street.

Cars then progress down Curia, Apollo and Ultimo streets before finishing at the intersection of Evlins Street.

Without a doubt, this stage offers rally fans some of the best spectating in the entire CAMS Australian Targa Championship, and another huge crowd is expected.

The first car is on the stage at 4.30pm. With free entry for spectators and a Targafest with all the cars and crews in High Street until 8pm following the conclusion of the stage, you couldn’t ask for anything more.

Grab your friends, your partner or your kids and line the streets for Targa High Country’s thrilling start. You won’t be disappointed.
