Targa Tasmania is a world class international motorsport event about to enter its 26th Event. This is a tarmac rally that travels over 2000kms with over 40 competitive stages on closed roads for the true motoring enthusiast, catering for up to 300 selected cars approved by invitation.
Targa Tasmania's heritage comes from a passionate history dating back to 1906 in Sicily, where the inaugural "Targa Florio" was unveiled. Targa Florio took its name from organizer Vincenzo Florio. Each winner was presented with a plate bearing the Florio family crest. The Italian word for plate is "Targa", hence the name, "Targa". While Targa Florio is no longer a competitive race, every year a pilgrimage still takes place driving the Sicilian Course.
Our competition also draws concepts directly from the best features of the Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse to create the worlds largest Tarmac Rally with a cross section of marvelously restored classic vehicles as well as the latest in grand touring and sports vehicles.
While all competitors who cross the finish line receive a finishers medallion, those who qualify in completing each stage under a pre-set time will also receive a Targa Plate.
Competing in Targa is your opportunity to share in this unique history in the making, and experience some of the most exciting and challenging tarmac roads in the world the way your car was designed to be driven.
This is the ultimate experience - this is the Ultimate Tarmac Rally.

Mansfield to host the longest street stage in Targa High Country’s history!
After last year’s much shortened street stage, all stakeholders have been working hard to create a stage for 2016 like nothing ever seen in Mansfield. For the stage to be approved and then be successful, it needs to tick a myriad of boxes. For competitors, we felt strongly that it must tick two key boxes; it needs to be a part of the competition and it must provide a suitable challenge.
Member of the Targa Family needs our help
Many of you would remember the happy and always smiling face of Natasha Deniese, who competed at Targa for many years, winning the Showroom competition in 2010 with Tony Warren.
Natasha has a rare condition that has over many years severely impacted her health.
A ray of hope exists through ground breaking treatment in the US so please help Natasha to raise the funds so she can make this potentially lifesaving trip to have this treatment that will hopefully see her be well enough again to compete in Targa in the future.
