TARGA TROPHIES  

   

The main goal for most competitors at Targa Tasmania is to be awarded a Targa Trophy. A trophy is presented to the driver and co-driver or navigator of each crew that completes each and every Targa stage within the trophy time specified in the road books for their vehicle class.


More desirable is the achievement of a Golden Targa Trophy, which is presented to any crew member (driver, co-driver or navigator) who is awarded a Targa Trophy in three successive years of the event. The Golden Targa Trophy is presented in lieu of the normal Targa Trophy award.


A crew member winning a fourth consecutive Targa Trophy will then be awarded standard Targa trophy (not another Golden Targa Trophy) but starts on the cycle towards winning a Platinum Targa Trophy.


An even more impressive milestone, the Platinum Targa Trophy is presented to any crew member who has already won a Golden Targa Trophy and, since winning that trophy, has again been awarded a Targa Trophy in three successive years. The Platinum Targa Trophy is presented in lieu of the standard Targa Trophy award. (Note: a Platinum Trophy can be won with two separate groups of three trophies; it is not necessary to achieve six successive trophies).


Only elite competitors achieve the triumph of the Diamond Targa Trophy, which is presented to any crew member who has already won a Platinum Targa Trophy and, since winning that trophy, has again been awarded a Targa Trophy in three successive years. (Note: a Diamond Trophy can be won with three separate groups of three trophies; it is not necessary to achieve nine successive trophies).


A higher accolade again is the Gold Diamond Targa Trophy, which is presented to any crew member who has already won a Diamond Targa Trophy and, since winning that trophy, has again been awarded a Targa Trophy in three successive years. (Note: a Gold Diamond Trophy can be won with four separate groups of three trophies; it is not necessary to achieve twelve successive trophies).


The ultimate achievement is the Platinum Diamond Targa Trophy, which is presented to any crew member who has already won a Gold Diamond Targa Trophy and, since winning that trophy, has again been awarded a Targa Trophy in three successive years. (Note: a Platinum Diamond Trophy can be won with five separate groups of three trophies; it is not necessary to achieve fifteen successive trophies).


Once a Platinum Diamond Targa Trophy has been won, the competitor will be inducted into the Targa Hall of Fame Legends.


The inaugural Denny Hulme Award was presented at Targa Tasmania in 1993, in memory of the late Denny Hulme who fought so hard to finish just nine seconds behind Greg Crick in Targa Tasmania 1992. To qualify for the award, a competitor must overcome extreme hardship and adversity throughout the entire event and must cross the finish line on the Saturday Afternoon in Hobart.
