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.

Former F1 Drivers set for Classic Adelaide Rally
Classic Adelaide have recently received confirmation that Former F1 stars Stefan Johansson, Pierluigi Martini and Ivan Capelli will all be taking part in the Shannons Classic Adelaide Rally, November 17-20.
The trio, who all raced in the Australian Grand Prix when it was held in Adelaide between 1985 and 1995, will drive exotic supercars in stages of the rally. They will headline the field for the Classic Adelaide’s ‘Marque Tour’ section, which is the non-competitive aspect of the rally that includes all 21 stages and finishes with a run around the famous Adelaide Parklands circuit on Saturday night.
“Having the three Formula 1 drivers join the Tour on the Friday adds to the experience for those taking part in the Tour, and those competing for the victory in the Classic Adelaide Rally,” said event spokesperson Tim Possingham.
