Targa Tasmania - Rookie Rallye
The Targa Tasmania Rookie Rallye is a great introduction for first time entrants who have dreamed of competing in Targa but are not ready for the physical and financial commitment of the full event.
The Rookie Rallye is conducted over the Prologue, Day One and Day Two of Targa Tasmania as a stand alone competition.
It culminates with a gala podium finish in Launceston on Day Two. Winners of the Classic and Modern sections also receive free, full entry into the next Targa Wrest Point event.
The Australian Targa Championship technical regulations apply to the Rookie Rallye entrant in exactly the same way that they apply to the full Targa competitor. Entry fees can be viewed via the link in your competitor console.
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.
