Targa Tasmania 2017 Course
The 2017 Targa Tasmania course will go down in the events history as the most unique course ever run due to the presence of Anzac Day falling on Day 2, instead of the traditional opening day of the event, as it did in 2006. With the change to a Monday to Saturday format in 2015, that was welcomed by all competitors, the course needs to be configured around this and the obvious need to respect the Tasmanian public on this important day of remembrance, by not closing a myriad of roads normally associated with a full day of Targa Tasmania.
Macleod and Hunter set winning pace at Targa North West
The Launceston team of Trevor Macleod and Scott Hunter have taken the overall win at the inaugural running of the of the Burnie-based Targa North West, which provides a key lead up event to the annual Targa Tasmania.
Vale- Deirdre Flint- OAM
It is with much sadness that we pass on our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Deirdre Flint. Deirdre was a long-time supporter of Targa Tasmania in her role as Mayor of Central Highlands Council, always ensuring that we had access to the Tarraleah and Ellendale stages along with last part of the iconic Mt. Arrowsmith Stage. Deirdre always made it a point to attend the Targa Tasmania dinner each year and enjoyed the many friendships that she made with the Targa family, including considering competing herself in her own Volvo alongside none other than Ronda Matthews.
Deirdre worked tirelessly for the Tasmanian community, in particular the people of the Central Highlands, and she will be sadly missed by us all.
Dedicated volunteer honoured in Burnie
The Targa Tasmania community were humbled to hear that one of our very own volunteers has been honoured at this year’s Burnie Australia Day ceremony. Terrance (or as he is known in the Targa community,) Terry Ferguson was named the 2017 City of Burnie Australia Day Citizen of the year with recognition for being one of the region’s most hard-working and hands-on community members. As most of you know, he has dedicated his time to every single Targa Tasmania since its inception in 1992, being only 1 of 11 people that have completed all 25 years of Targa Tasmania. We would like to join in the congratulations and extend our thanks to Terry for all of his hard work, dedication and support of the event.
