The roads through the Shire of Kalamunda will be the focus of the nation’s best tarmac rally crews in just under one month when QUIT Targa West returns to the region.

Playing host to the opening leg of the event for the fourth year running the Shire of Kalamunda boasts some of the best stages in Australian rallying - highlighted by the renowned summerslegal Zig Zag Special Stage.

“We are delighted to be once again running our event on roads through the Kalamunda Shire,” QUIT Targa West Event Director Bob Schrader said.  

“As well as a host of local crews QUIT Targa West 2010 will boast an impressive line up of national competitors and an unbelievable assortment of cars, from the super powerful Nissan GTR to modern and classic Porsches, American muscle cars and iconic Australian Holden and Fords and the Japanese Subaru’s and Mitsubishi’s.

“The summerslegal Zig Zag Special Stage is always a highlight for drivers and fans and offers some spectacular views of Kalamunda, the City of Perth and surrounding regions,” Schrader added.

After witnessing some spectacular action on the stages, spectators can then easily return to the Kalamunda Service Park in the centre of town and will get the opportunity to meet the drivers and check out the cars and soak up some of the atmosphere.

With live bands, roving entertainment and the Shannons Super Rig rolling into town as well as the fantastic local shops and cafes in Kalamunda there will be plenty of action to keep local residents and motorsport enthusiasts entertained while the drivers have a rest.

“The Shannons Super Rig transforms into a 24 metre long, eight meter wide and eight metre high Super Automotive Expo and includes Sony Playstation consoles, automotive footage, motorsport memorabilia, an outdoor stage and web kiosks and will be a fantastic inclusion to the atmosphere in Kalamunda,” Schrader said.

Spectators can view the live rally stages at designated areas along both Zig Zag Drive and Mundaring Weir Road. These will be listed in the Official Spectator Guide in the Autotrader magazine available on 20th August, from the Kalamunda Newsagency and Lottery Centre.

“There is no parking along the Zig Zag but Spectators can catch a Shuttle Bus from Jorgenson Park, off Mundaring Weir Road, and be dropped off at the stage or at the Kalamunda Service Park in Haynes Street,” Schrader added.

QUIT Targa West will be held from the 26th - 29th August 2010 in the Shires of Kalamunda, Toodyay as well as the City of Swan and City of Perth.
