Anyone ever contemplated driving the magnificent roads of Tasmania on a closed road following Targa Tasmania....? We have the answer! Following on from this years highly successful event, join us as we head down to take on Targa Tasmania in our specially prepared Supercharged V6 Lotus Exige. We're not asking you to compete but join the field in the Touring Section leading the competition field with the aid and guidance of our own appointed tour guide. Plus follow this up with a Track Day at Baskerville Raceway in Hobart, one of the countries best and most demanding short courses.

For the first major event in 2021 we head to Victoria, touring the scenic highlands around Mt Buller. This is the re-scheduled 2020 event moving from its traditional home of November to February 4th - 7th 2021.The event based in “Mt Buller” takes in all the fantastic surrounding roads around the Mansfield area as well as the spectacular Mansfield “street stage” and the epic run up Mt Buller.Places in the tour are very limited with a maximum of 10 cars so don’t miss out!

Tour Targa Great Barrier Reef
This event continues to grow so we plan to conduct another tour to take in some of QLD's finest roads. The community of Cairns is very supportive of this event even going to the trouble of shutting 3 of the major highways so we can enjoy our cars to their full potential. Details will be posted online soon! 2nd to the 5th September 2021
Tarmac Short Course Challenge and a NEW Challenge Series!
This year we have even more opportunities to blast around the DTC course at Lakeside in our Tarmac Short Course Challenge plus this year we are introducing an additional 6 "officially timed" events which will constitute our Tarmac Challenge Series. Point will be awared for each round based on consistancy to produce an overall champion. Trophies and prizes will be awared. (full details TBC). This is a great way to safely and inexpensively enjoy your car in a gymkhana style event and have bit of fun competing if you wish.

Half days on the QR National Circuit to offer a more exclusive day tailored around dedicated in car and video data coaching with optional timed sprints - STAY TUNED!
