After a successful debut in 2017, the Targa Florio Australian Tribute’s 2018 route has been confirmed, with a host of Victorian tourism hot spots on the schedule.
With new cars, trophy categories and routes on show, Targa Florio will return to Victoria bigger and better, allowing car enthusiasts of all ages to experience the joys of motor sport.
The new route, which will again start Geelong, will see competitors travel more than 1000 kilometres through some of Victoria’s most scenic roads and iconic regions, before ending at a special location in the heart of Melbourne.
The route includes popular tourist destinations such as the Bellarine Peninsual, the Great Ocean Road, Mornington Peninsula, Gippsland and the Yarra Valley, while competitors will also visit the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit and the Australian Automotive Research Centre near Anglesea.
In addition to Targa Florio’s new route, a new live site will be open on the Geelong Foreshore giving fans the chance to get up close and personal with the cars competing in the event.
Drivers competing will be able to enter into three main trophy categories as well as put their pride and joys on display throughout the five-day festival for fans to admire.
Classic Cars Trofeo will be made up of cars produced from 1906 and 1970, Ferraris from 1977 to current day can be entered in the Ferrari Tributo category and factory manufactured Supercars from 1990 to the present day will make up the Supercar Trophy.
Australian racing legend, Alfredo Costanzo has been confirmed for the event alongside fellow Ferrari Tributo winner Carlo Travaglini, while Classica Trofeo winners Giordano Mozzi and Stefania Biaccha have also confirmed they will defend their inaugural Australian title.
The Targa Florio Australian Tribute will take place on 28 November – 2 December across six regions in Victoria.
