DENNY HULME MEMORIAL TROPHY


The inaugural Denny Hulme Award was presented for 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. 

Denny’s untimely death due to a heart attack whilst competing in the 1992 Tooheys 1000 Bathurst meant that he was robbed of the opportunity to “turn the tables” on Greg Crick in year two. Throughout his distinguished motor racing career, Denny earned a reputation for being a fighter and a tough competitor.

The late John Large, founder of Targa Tasmania was speaking to Denny only the day before he lost his life. He was looking forward to returning to Tasmania to compete in the 1993 event. John chose to honour Denny’s enthusiasm for the event through the Denny Hulme Memorial Award.

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.
