Australian Targa Championship Tour Information
The Australian Targa Championship tours are amazing experiences but they are not competitive races. Instead, the tours are designed to display a cavalcade of motorsports history, giving owners an opportunity to use their vehicles safely while enjoying the thrill of riding past thousands of spectators.
Normal posted speed limits apply to the tours although there is still plenty of opportunity for drivers to enjoy their cars in a very “spirited” manner! Street stages also add to the event's unique character.
The tour leaves from parc ferme, passing through landscapes varying from open farm land to beautiful vineyards and large mountain ranges. The Targa tour follows exactly the same course as regular competition, going through approximately 20 minutes after road closure time.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE ENTRY FEE?
Apart from the once in a lifetime thrill of riding on some amazing roads, you will also receive the following:
• A ticket for the driver and co-driver to the Welcome Party
• Lunch on each day of the competition
• A set of vinyl number plates (metal number plates for Targa Tasmania) and vehicle door panels
HOW DO I ENTER?
You will need to create a competitor's account via the Login box in the top right hand corner of the site, then pay your $500 deposit for your event and you are away and touring!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Tour entry fees are dependent on when you enter and which event you plan to enter. To view the latest costs, please have a look via the Enter Here button in your competitor console.
HOW MANY SPACES ARE AVAILABLE?
This is determined by the total number of vehicles that can safely complete each stage within the four and half hour road closure limit.

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 would probably be the first to admit that he wasn’t the fastest driver
in 4WD, but he was in front when it mattered.
