The countdown is on for QUIT Targa West which will be held in the City of Perth and the surrounding shires of Kalamunda, Chittering and Tooday, from September 4 – 7 this year.

Entries for this prestigious tarmac rally close next Friday, 15 August.  In order to uphold the high level of competitor experience shown over the last few years, the event has restricted entries to 85 vehicles, meaning there are now only a few places left available for interested crews.

Now in its fourth year, QUIT Targa West has now secured itself a spot as one of the major tarmac rallies in Australia.  The event continues to grow, attracting some of the biggest names in tarmac rallying, and boasting a field of some of the best cars in the country.

However, one of the most attractive features of QUIT Targa West is that it provides an opportunity for anyone, not just professional motorsport drivers, with the chance to compete in a premier event.

QUIT Targa West is broken up into four separate categories run under one banner, with teams competing in either the Competition or Challenge categories, which are further broken down into Modern (post-1982) and Classic (pre-1982) classes.

Competition cars are set up as competitive rally cars, under similar guidelines to those used in other tarmac rallies. Each car is equipped with a roll cage and full safety features and competes at full speed throughout the tarmac circuit.

Challenge cars are standard road cars, which run without a roll cage and are speed restricted to a maximum of 130kms per hour, monitored by a GPS tracking system.

The wide and varied field of classic and modern vehicles will compete along some of the most spectacular roads Western Australia has to offer. Changes to some stages since 2007 will provide exciting and challenging driving for competitors in both the Competition and Challenge categories.

“QUIT Targa West is more than just a rally; it is a chance for teams to escape from the real world and indulge their passion in this beautiful part of Australia,” said Event Director, Bob Schrader.

“The rally is a great way to combine passion with the social and competitive side of rallying, and battle it out on some of the best roads WA can offer.”

He went on to say, “Whether you like, Alfas, Porsches, Hyundais, Holdens, Fords, Aston Martins or the latest Nissan GTR QUIT Targa West 2008 will be sure to excite with a wide range of vehicles all getting ready to line up in the first weekend of September.”
