Targa North West

When: 15-17 February

The CAMS Australian Targa Championship returns, as Paul Stokell looks to defend his title against a host of big names including seven-time Targa Tasmania champions, Jason and John White.

Competitors will battle it out across some of Tasmania’s most picturesque towns in the north west, drivers will tackle more than 170km of competitive distance on 11 stages. with many of these being more than 20km long.

Last year, CAMS Australian Rally Championship drivers Steve Glenney and Andy Sarandis took out the event, while the Whites were forced in to an early exit, which eventually stopped them from winning the outright championship.  

Acting as entree to Targa Tasmania, the event has great local feel where all competitors are based in the one location, making it a great weekend for spectators to get up close and personal to the action.
