TARGA is saddened by the recent passing of former competitor, Brian Learoyd. Our sincere condolences go to Brian’s family and friends.
Brian was a pioneer of the TARGA spirit, being one of the first competitors to bring a late model C4 Corvette to TARGA Tasmania in 1996. The arrival of the C5 in 1997 saw Brian move to this highly anticipated Vette in 1998. Brian competed in nine events, winning a Golden TARGA Trophy in 2000 and a Platinum TARGA Trophy in 2003. Brian also won the Category 8 LMS section in 1998, sitting alongside Greg Waters.
Brian’s passion and desire for TARGA Tasmania, combined with his willingness to bring a uniquely different car to the event each year, helped sow the seeds for what the Ultimate Tarmac Rally would become in the years to follow.
May he Rest in Peace.
