The Motorsport Australia TARGA Championship has announced a revamped Targa High Country this year, with the country’s second largest tarmac rally mixing up its schedule.

Traditionally, the Victorian event’s stages in Mansfield were in between runs up and down Mount Buller, however with organisers wanting all post-event festivities to take place in Mansfield now, the town’s street stages will occur on the Sunday as opposed to Saturday.

Still confirmed to take place in November, albeit one week later than previous events, Targa High Country will see competitors tackle 260 competitive kilometres across the weekend, with two runs on the famous Mount Buller road still included. 

Friday’s action will have a twilight start time, beginning in Mt Buller and heading down a lengthened Mirimbah Stage and then all the way to the alpine village.

On the Saturday, the competition heads out to Whitfield and then back to Mt Buller before Sunday’s action goes out as a far as Eildon before returning to Mansfield for the final four-kilometre stage.

Targa High Country takes place in and around Mount Buller and Mansfield in Victoria on 13-15 November.
