Targa West on TV this Saturday, October 3
- 29th September 2009, 9:43am
In 2005 QUIT Targa West made its debut in the worldâ€™s most isolated city, Perth, and at 2pm this Saturday 3 October you can watch all the action from the 2009 event on Channel Seven.
The one hour documentary will feature highlights of the largest and one of the most exciting events in QUIT Targa Westâ€™s five year history.
A record 99 vehicles, ranging from classic Australian Holdens and Fords to the very quick Nissans, Porsches, Subarus and Mitsubishis, all competed along some of the best roads in Australia in some of the toughest conditions the event has seen.
QUIT Targa West 2008 Modern Competition winner Steven Jones; Targa Tasmania winner Tony Quinn; Asia Pacific Rally Championship driver Dean Herridge; former World Rally Championship driver Alister McRae and current Australian Classic Tarmac Championship leader Kevin Weeks were just some of the big names competing for honours in the prestigious event.
Special stages were run in the City of Perth and the shires of Kalamunda, Toodyay and Chittering, and the documentary will provide some fantastic vision of not only the motorsport action but also this beautiful part of Australia.
Weather dominated the first two days of competition as the drivers used all their skills to keep their cars on the tarmac and navigators became all the more important as rain made visibility hard at times.
With the sun out on the final day of competition crews were able to attack the stages and the day produced some fantastic action and another great result for the event.
The event is broken up into four separate categories, Modern Competition, Classic Competition, Modern Challenge and Classic Challenge.
Filmed by Black Magic Media, QUIT Targa West 2009 is a must see hour of entertainment this Saturday.
