The Shannons Targa Tour is a unique opportunity to take part in the world renowned Targa Tasmania as a Shannons club member and motoring enthusiast.  

You will enjoy the freedom of driving your pride and joy, your classic restoration, or brand new GT on the ‘Special Stages’ of the event.  You will rub shoulders with legends, feel the rush of the corners, the exhilaration of mountainous roads and enjoy a bonding journey like no other.
