The demanding course for the 10th anniversary Targa High Country tarmac rally based in the Victorian alpine playground of Mount Buller has been confirmed.
Comprising an almost identical make-up to 2018, the three-day event, that also acts as the final round of the four-round CAMS Australian Targa Championship, embraces 20 competitive stages.
Each of the three days starts with the short but tricky 6.76km Mirimbah run off the mountain as the event takes on a total competitive distance of more than 270 kilometres.
On Leg 1, a total of more than 80 kilometres will see the field tackle eight stages which will finish with the first of two climbs of 18.22km up to Mount Buller.
Predominantly run around the Lake Eildon region, the field will converge on Eildon for lunch on the opening day.
On day 2 a further eight stages confronts competitors, the longest of which is TS11 Tolmie, with the 16.37km making the field head toward the lunch stop at Pizzini winery. Powers Lookout is set for TS14 which is Tolmie run in reverse.
Leg 2 closes with the customary fan favourite blast through the 3.62km Mansfield street stage which always delivers plenty of action.
While Leg 3 comprises only four special stages, it represents the longest single day journey with more than 113km of competition ahead of the field.
The monster Jamieson stage (TS18) sees the field traverse the southern edge of Lake Eildon National Park with the 48.73km run, the longest single stage of the event.
Eildon (TS19) measures 39.95km before the field is asked to tackle the Mount Buller climb of 18.22km for a final time which will decide the event and most likely many of the 10 Targa categories.
The ever popular Street Stage and TargaFest is scheduled to be held at Mansfield from 3pm on Saturday, November 9.
