Hey guys

Indeed, the club event will certainly be occurring again, likewise the Night Stage at the Showgrounds!

The Rookie Rally is a new addition in 2013 too. A short course three day event for Targa Adelaide first time drivers. With lenient vehicle eligibility, owners of hillclimb, sprint or time attack cars can give tarmac rallying a go without having to reverse potentially expensive compliance issues first... and for the Classic and Modern Rookie Rallye winners, a free of charge entry to Targa High Country 2013 is up for grabs too!

There will be a competitor info night held at the Sporting Car Club on Thursday 13 June at 7pm, so feel free to come along and have a chat.

Ps. Todd has moved on from the Targa world, but Samara and Jade will be more than happy to help.

All the best


Stuart Benson
Event Director

From Octagon today to club email address :
Dear Car Clubs,
 
As Targa Adelaide is fast approaching (21-25th August!) we are again offering the Shannon’s Tour, similar to last year. To enter, each Car Club will need to come up with a group of 10 entries, where we then offer the Tour Leader vehicle- a FREE entry! The cost is $450, which includes laps around the Night Stage, Saturday tour as well as event stickers.
 
I have attached the registration form, which includes all relevant information. If you could please issue this out to interested competitors, that would be greatly appreciated.
 
If you have any competitors interested in participating in the Night Stage only, please contact Abbie Taylor from the Sporting Car Club; sccsaevents@internode.on.net as these are separate entries.
 
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
 
I look forward to seeing you all at Targa Adelaide in August!
 
Kind Regards,
 
Forgiveness is easier to achieve than permission!
