As entries for the 2008 Quit Targa West continue to flood in organisers have released details of two track days to be held in the lead up to the tarmac rally which is run in and around the Shires of Kalamunda, Chittering and Toodyay.

The track days, to be held at Barbagallo Raceway on July 15 and  August 7, will allow teams
an important opportunity to shake down their vehicles in the lead up to the event, which will be held between September 5 and 7.

After the successful trial of a similar track day in 2007, organisers chose to offer competitors two days in 2008 to meet the requirements of a growing field.

“This is a perfect opportunity for those involved in Quit Targa West to drive their vehicles in two-up
form in preparation for the rally,” said Quit Targa West Event Director Bob Schrader.

 “Purchasing an individual track day is often an unrealistic situation for teams, yet it is an important part of preparation. By putting on these track days we hope to provide teams with an opportunity to have a better experience at the event.”

Along with the opportunity to shake down vehicles, the track days will also provide teams with the
opportunity to invite their vehicle sponsors, family and friends along to experience the thrill of tarmac rallying.

Todd Zani from Team HSV has applauded the track days saying it is evidence the organisers are looking at the needs of competitors.

“We run a three car team in Quit Targa West and the track days will provide the perfect, cost effective opportunity for us to put on a fully catered for ride day for our sponsors,” said Zani. “Our team focus is on returning value to sponsors and there is no better way to do that than to get them involved, we will be able to use the track days to build up the excitement around the event and best of all our sponsors are stoked!”

To ensure the day is run in a smooth and safe manner, there are only 25 places available for each track day so competitors are urged to contact organisers on if they are interested in taking part.
