Stage Team Delta – doing it for the kids
You may have seen some of our hard working officials putting in some extra work with buckets during this year’s Targa Tasmania, but maybe what caught your attention further was the fact that one was wearing a green mankini!
We are happy to tell you that this was all in the name of a good cause – well, two causes actually – “Give me 5 for kids” and also the Royal Hobart Hospital Emergency Kids Ward.

Hammer - Achieving "The Dream" with technology
Paraplegic Alan "Hammer" Bloore is a man on a mission – to help people with disabilities lead active, healthy lives and achieve their sporting dreams.
His latest quest is to compete in the 2015 Targa Tasmania (27 April – 2nd May) in his EuroMarque customised 2013 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, with his son Baxter along side him in the navigator seat.
Over the history of the Targa Tasmania event we have seen other inspirational competitors with disabilities take on the challenge, however Alan will be the first one to use the latest high-tech “fly by wire” hand controlled satellite accelerator.
