Australian Targa Championship

It is with great excitement today that Octagon and CAMS are proud to announce the launch of the 2012-2013 CAMS Australian Targa Championship. Entries are now open to all four rounds of the championship, so get in fast to take advantage of the early bird prices on offer for just a $500 deposit per round.

The 2012/2013 Championship sees some exciting changes including:

  • A brand new points system that will see much closer competition and 50% bonus points for the Supaloc Targa Adelaide opening round alongside the double points on offer for Targa Tasmania.
  • A `best three rounds’ points system that will allow competitors who compete in all four rounds to drop their lowest round and therefore gain a second chance at championship success along with also giving those competing in three of the four rounds a very realistic chance of securing the championship.
  • The introduction of Showroom Sports for two wheel drive vehicles that sell for between $100,000 and $200,000; an exciting competition is sure to be seen amongst Europe’s and the US’s finest performance machines with Porsche, BMW, Audi, Chevrolet & Ford all certain to make appearances.
  • The introduction of Regularity for those competitors wishing to enjoy the spirit of Targa competition that still requires great thought and planning whilst removing the requirements of full competition vehicles.

The 2012/2013 CAMS Australian Targa Championship Technical Regulations will be released on 31 May and the great news is that it will be `business as usual’ to avoid any major or costly modifications for competitors. The regulations will include rules for the new Showroom Sports, which will be very similar to the current Showroom regulations.

In conjunction with the launch of the championship, we now also have a new user friendly portal system for competitors. The new portal will include a new log-in system, a reminder system and a profile system that will allow competitors to upload car and sponsorship images in line with the feedback that we have been receiving from the large fan base that now follows the CAMS Australian Targa Championship.

If you have any questions or enquiries, please email or call Todd Grant on 03 6221 8855 or [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you all at Supaloc Targa Adelaide and a reminder to all previous Classic Adelaide competitors that we are acknowledging the plate system from previous years and like Targa Tasmania, Targa plates are awarded to all competitors completing each stage under the trophy time. Don’t miss the opportunity to secure your gold, platinum or even diamond Supaloc Targa Adelaide Plate.
