The all-new Targa Great Barrier Reef tarmac rally, to be held in Queensland at the end of August, has already received over 160 entries.
This comes seven months before new event arrives in Cairns, and is unprecedented for any new Targa event since the first ever Targa Tasmania in 1991.
The current list of 163 entrants includes multi Targa Tasmania winner, Jason White, in a Dodge Viper, and five-times Australian Rally Champion, Ross Dunkerton, in a Subaru Impreza WRX.
Entries from every state and both territories have been received.
Targa Great Barrier Reef will run from August 31 to September 2 on a course of over 200 competitive kilometres, including the exciting range roads out of Cairns and Port Douglas.
Organisers promise a Targa event like no other as it passes through landscapes that are truly unique to Tropical North Queensland. Sugar cane and banana plantations will line the various stages.
“Targa is renowned for showcasing and bringing awareness to many of Australia’s iconic and important World Heritage Areas through its TV Specials, broadcast around the world, and will continue to do so with Targa Great Barrier Reef in highlighting the beauty and importance of preserving the Tropical North Queensland region," Targa Australia director, Mark Perry, said.
