The Shire of Manjimup once again welcomes the Make Smoking History Targa South West to the Southern Forests region of Western Australia. The 2019 event will be held over the weekend of 17th & 19th May 2019 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 Competition, Challenge and new for 2018 there is even an Electric Vehicle category.
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 like the Tesla Roadster and the ‘gull winged’ Tesla Model X. And what event would be complete without an exotic or two. What about a Ferrari 488 Spider or Porsche GT3 RS?
