The Targa Tour is for people with a special interest car who want to experience driving on spectacular winding closed roads, in an exciting non-competitive atmosphere, without the full safety equipment in their car such as required for the competition vehicles.
The Targa Tour is not a race, but an experience. The tour leader governs top speed and the vehicles travel in convoy through all the closed road special stages using the racing lines on both sides of the road.
The Targa Tour travels through the Targa special closed road stages prior to the Targa competition vehicles, but well after the road closure has been secured.
The Targa Tour is for Historic, Classic and Sports Cars, including GT and special interest cars.
Entrants will use the same route books as the Targa competitors, with the instructions being Tulips and Cautions indicating areas of particular concern. It is recomended to fit a Brantz meter (Monit is the prefered unit) to accurately record distances between instructions.
Cars must have a current warrant of fitness and registration, carry a reflective warning triangle, a first aid kit, a Tow Rope, a 2kg fire extinguisher and have a TrackIt GPS Unit installed.
Entrants (Driver & Co-Driver) need to have a minimum of aM grade license together with a current full civil driver licence.
