TARGA SOUTH WEST POSTPONED
For many years Targa West have been at the forefront of safety innovations in tarmac rallying and have implemented many safety measures that have now been adopted by other events.
Recently due to another tragedy at Targa Tasmania, Motorsport Australia announce it will be pausing all tarmac rallies in Australia. There has been no indication of when, if at all, the pause will be lifted and worryingly Motorsport Australia have provided no indication of how long their investigation is expected to take leaving all events in limbo.
We are actively exploring other options however given the tight timeline we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the 2022 Make Smoking History Targa South West. We are hoping to be able to run the event later in the year.
Thank you to all our Sponsors, Competitors, Officials and especially the communities of Pemberton, Manjimup and Northcliffe for your support over the past 15+ years…we will be back!

Targa West Pty Ltd
The Shire of Manjimup once again welcomes the Make Smoking History Targa South West to the Southern Forests region of Western Australia. The 2022 event will be held on TBA and will compete on closed road special stages in and around 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?
Targa South West is a unique Motorsport event that brings all the action to you. Unlike traditional motorsport, where you have to go to a race track to watch, competitors in the Make Smoking History Targa South west come to Pemberton and Northcliffe to compete on the roads in and around the towns.
The Make Smoking History Targa South West is a SMOKE FREE EVENT.
