The worlwide COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Targa South West also. As of today, 6th April 2020, we have rescheduled hoping that the health crisis is under control by August and we will be able to run a rejigged ONE day event…washed hands and crossed fingers.
Our new date is:
8th AUGUST 2020
In the meantime keep washing your hands, maintain social distancing…and where better to do so than in your garage preparing your car for August? 🙂
But seriously, we hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and we look forward to seeing you on the other side once the world returns to it’s new normal.

The Shire of Manjimup once again welcomes the Make Smoking History Targa South West to the Southern Forests region of Western Australia. The 2020 event will be held on Saturday 8th August 2020 and will compete on closed road special stages in and around Manjimup, Pemberton and Northcliffe.
A Tarmac Rally is a unique form of motorsport where Tarmac Rally Cars compete on roads closed for competition. Cars start at 30 second intervals and race against the clock with the winner being the car that is fastest over all stages. Cars are grouped into classes and there are categories for outright Competition, Targa 165, Targa 130 and of course the non timed Targa Tour.
There is a wide variety of cars competing including Classics like Ford Escorts and Mustangs, Toranas and Commodores to more modern turbocharged Mitsubishi Evos, Subaru WRXs and Nissan GTRs and even a range of Electric Vehicles including the Tesla Roadster. And what event would be complete without an exotic Porsche or two?
Spectating is FREE!!
