More than 130 competitors are expected to be part of this weekend’s GT Fabrication Targa Bunbury Sprint with some of the headline entries to include classics such as the Mustang, Datsun, Triumph and Chevrolet Camaro
Before drivers take to the streets of Bunbury, on Sunday, car lovers will be able to get up close and personal to the cars themselves through the Shannons Show ‘n’ Shine, which will take place at the Bunbury Geographe Motor Museum from 6.00pm to 8.30pm AWST on Saturday evening.
When the action does eventually get underway, cars will compete against the clock over the challenging 4km course, which is made up of around 25 corners.  
Event Director Ross Tapper highlighted the popularity around the event and was eager for what was to come.
“The street circuit will be exciting for competitors, spectators and local businesses as cars give it their all to finish on the podium,” Tapper said.
“There’s a real appetite in the South West for the short, sharp format of the GT Fabrication Targa Bunbury Sprint - it’s so popular that we've had to cap competitor numbers.
“To keep things manageable, we’ve split competitors into two groups which also gives drivers a break and the chance to watch the competition, something they don’t normally have a chance to do.”
With reigning champion Troy Wilson locked into the 2021 edition of the event, the three-time winner was just as excited for it.
“I love this event because it’s like the street circuits you see on TV - you’re allowed to cut loose as fast as you can on the streets, legally,” Wilson added.
“The atmosphere is amazing with Bunbury locals who show so much support, the crowds that go along to watch are pretty awesome.”
Spectators will be allowed to watch the event for free, however they are encouraged and only permitted to watch in marked spectator areas.
