TARGA OFFICIALS ROLES


Targa Stage Teams are made up by team members who work together to deliver a stage each day throughout the entirety of the event.

The Targa system still uses officials who are only available for one day in road closure roles.

Supporting the Stage Teams are the Communications Officials.

Communications Official

The Communications Team consists of two groups of officials.  Officials on an SOS point record the passage of competition vehicles through the stage.  They also provide the means for competition vehicles to stop and report any incidents within the stage.  Officials at a relay point set up and operate a repeater, which provides communication between the Start and Stop Point on stages where direct communication is not possible.

 

Road Closure

Where the closed roads join roads that are still open to the public, Road Closure Officials are positioned to assist the public with information.  This may consist of alternate routes or road closure times, rally protocols or general information about the rally (as road closures can become small spectator points for locals).  It helps to have good communication skills in this role.  Any person over the age of 16 with a trainee officials licence can be a Road Closure Official, if supervised by an official holding a general licence.

Track days are fun, don’t get me wrong, but the idea of racing your own car flat out on twisty and mountainous public roads is rather appealing to any car enthusiast. The fact that you can do it legally is almost seemingly absurd. But that’s exactly what Targa events in Australia have offered for years. A chance to race along some of our great nation’s best roads legally and, more importantly, safely.
