UPDATE: 24th March 2020
The worlwide Corona Virus pandemic has impacted Targa West also. As of today we have rescheduled hoping that the health crisis is under control by late October.
Our new dates are:
22nd – 25th OCTOBER
In the meantime keep washing your hands, maintain social distancing…and where better to do so than in your garage preparing your car for October? 🙂
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 Make Smoking History Targa West is set to rev up Perth for the 15th time over the 22nd – 25th October 2020. The competitors will compete on closed road special stages in and around Perth, Whiteman Park, Ellenbrook, Kalamunda (including the infamous Zig Zag), Parkerville, Toodyay, Chittering and Bullsbrook along with Malaga prior to the finalé at the City of Perth Special Stage along Riveride Drive next to the spectacular Swan River.
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 full Competition, Targa 130, Targa 165 and 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?
