Targa Tasmania is a world class international motorsport event about to enter its 27th Event. This is a tarmac rally that travels over 2000kms with almost 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.

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.
