Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

TARGA West has an­nounced driv­ers will spend the 2016 sea­son fight­ing for the Targa Cup across 11 events.

Event di­rec­tor Ross Tap­per said the main goal was to make mo­tor­sport ac­ces­si­ble to more peo­ple.

“The points-based Quit Targa Cup se­ries will in­cor­po­rate 11 events,” he said.

“Th­ese rounds give com­peti­tors a va­ri­ety of driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, from the tight city and town stages to the faster flow­ing coun­try roads.”

The Targa Cup se­ries will in­cor­po­rate the McRae Rallysprin­t events, Bus­sel­ton Sprint, Targa South West, the new GT Fab­ri­ca­tion Targa Bun­bury Sprint, Targa West and the Targa City Sprint.

The McRae Rallysprin­t se­ries will be held on Thurs­day. For de­tails, visit www.tar­gawest.com.au.
