City of Perth support QUIT Targa West tarmac rally
- 26th June 2008, 11:03am
With less than 80 days before the event kicks off on September 4, QUIT Targa West director, Bob Schrader, said it was fantastic to once again receive the support of the City of Perth.
“City of Perth first came on board in 2005 and have remained a strong supporter of the event ever since, so it is wonderful they are continuing this support in 2008,” Schrader said.
QUIT Targa West will involve approximately 80 teams from across the country, each team bringing with them service crew, sponsors, family and friends.
“The event is not only a credit to Western Australia but provides an important boost to the region’s tourism and hospitality networks during the week of the rally,” Schrader said. “The 2008 sponsorship is recognition that City of Perth respects the important part QUIT Targa West plays in promoting Perth and its surrounds.”
During the three days of competition the competitors will once again be taken through the stunning countryside of the Kalamunda, Chittering and Toodyay Shires.
Changes to some stages will provide exciting and challenging driving for competitors in both the Competition and Challenge categories.
The partnership between QUIT Targa West and City of Perth will enable the event to hold the official start in the Murray Street Mall, and will allow for the Show ‘n’ Shine to be held along James Street, in Northbridge, on Friday night.
"City of Perth is very pleased to again be a major sponsor of QUIT Targa West. Perth and its surrounding areas are a great venue for motor sport and we enjoy the excitement that this sort of rally event brings to the City," City of Perth Lord Mayor, Lisa Scaffidi, said.
The Show ‘n’ Shine provides rally fans and local residents with the opportunity to see the cars and their drivers that compete in the rally up close and personal when they are parked along the popular Northbridge strip.
With the City of Perth recently announcing development plans for the Northbridge Piazza on the corner of James and Lakes Streets, the night is sure to continue to attract large crowds.
The Honorable Lord Mayor, Lisa Scaffidi, will be hosting the next QUIT Targa West cocktail function on July 2, at Council House. All past and current competitors, along with Council Members, Sporting Council Officials and Sponsors associated with QUIT Targa West, have been invited.
There will also be a number of vehicles parked on the lawn in front of Council House, which will bring colour to St George’s Terrace for the day.
