The Targa Tasmania Hall of Fame has been set up to honour outstanding commitment to the event by past and present competitors. Competitors are automatically admitted to the Hall of Fame on completion of 15 events, when they are also awarded the John Large Memorial Award. Targa Tasmania believes that if a competitor reaches this milestone, they really deserve to be remembered forever. The Targa Tasmania Legends section within Targa Tasmania Hall of Fame is for the competitor who achieves the ultimate Platinum Diamond Targa Plate (5 sets of 3 Targa plates).

Jason White wins back-to-back Targa Tasmania titles
Local hero Jason White has claimed back-to-back Targa Tasmania titles after dominating the five-day marathon in his Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale.
In securing his fourth Targa Tasmania title, White and his co-driver, John White, also claimed consecutive CAMS Australian Targa Championship wins.
Denyer thrilled with Showroom triumph
The RDA Brakes Showroom competition went to Grant Denyer and Dale Moscatt after a convincing drive that saw them take victory by 17 minutes.
The pair had trailed the similar Renault of Adam Spence in the early part of the rally, but after Spence went off the road, the result was beyond doubt.
Denyer loved everything about the event, and was glowing in his praise.
“With the lead we had today I was thinking about taking it easy and just cruising home, but we somehow finished third fastest outright on Mount Arrowsmith,” Denyer said.
Kennard conquers 4WD Showroom
Kennard would probably be the first to admit that he wasn’t the fastest driver
in 4WD, but he was in front when it mattered.
Regularity win is all in the timing for Friths
David Frith have completed a stellar event, taking the Targa Tasmania and
Australian Targa Championship titles in the Regularity competition.
