  • Targa Tasmania

    Targa Australia run the world's largest, longest and hardest tarmac rally event- Targa Tasmania. The concept of the Targa is drawn directly from the best features of the Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse. However, Targa Tasmania is not a slow motion re-run; it is a genuine "red-blooded" motorsport competition.
