The Great Barrier Reef Tour - 28 Aug to 2 Sep 2019

Following on from our highly successful Targa Great Barrier Reef tour last year we are pleased to again offer this exciting new Targa event based in tropical Cairns. What better place to combine the exhilaration of driving some unbelievable roads in a relaxed holiday environment. Due to the popularity of last year organisers are already closing this event off! So, if you are interested it is a matter of urgency to get your entries in..

What’s required to join in?

All that’s needed to join in is a performance road car and two people (driver & co-driver) with a passion for driving and keen sense of adventure. The tour adheres to the sign posted speed limits, although there is still plenty of opportunity to enjoy your car in a very “spirited” manner- the way they were designed.

The Targa Tour follows the same course as competition vehicles, on closed roads using both sides of the road, ensuring you feel every twist and turn of the event. Getting to drive some of the twisty highways around Cairns has proven so popular that Targa GBR is well on the way to becoming a world recognised iconic event and as such will be a sell out!

Other requirements

  • Minimum CAMS Level 2 Non-Speed Licence
  • First aid kit
  • An oil spill kit (1kg of kitty litter will suffice)
  • 2 x Safety triangles

Roll cages, harnesses, special tyres and extensive modifications “are not” required.

Joining Driving Events tour is truly a unique experience. Not only for the fact that you get to be part of one of the largest Tarmac rallies in the world but you also get to rub shoulders with some sporting legends and follow our own 2018 championship winning V6 Lotus Exige, meet the crew and share stories over dinner each night. The excitement of competition is addictive as Paul Stokell and his navigator Kate Catford take on round 3 of the Australian Targa Championship.

Our group will consist of between 8 – 12 cars with our nominated Tour Leader taking you through each stage. As the tour precedes the start times of the competition cars some early starts can be expected - often before 7.00am. After returning to your accommodation in Cairns relatively early each day you will have the opportunity for service work ahead of relaxing into your evening. We have selected quality accommodation and a Targa guide to help make this a stress free and
guaranteed fun event.
