Festival Targa Rally

The Festival Targa Rally
3rd March 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Festival Targa Rally organised by Bath Motor Club. Every year we make small changes, but for 2018 it is a change of direction. We have decided due to the increasing PR pressures in running a competitive night event, to change format and run a competitive Targa Rally.

We have organised around 30 miles of tests in a total route of 100 miles, starting in the afternoon and finishing later that evening. The format has been designed to meet the landowner’s wishes, starting at 16:30 and finishing around 22:00: remember to bring your spot lights for special tests run in the dark!

The event will be dual permit, both National ‘B’ and Clubmans events run as a Targa Road Rally allowing any 2WD cars suitable for road rallies, subject to safety and tyre restrictions.

Included in the entry fee there will be a dinner available for driver and navigator to enjoy when you arrive back at the finish.

The entire route will run in Wiltshire and Somerset, starting and finishing at the Frome Cattle Market. All road sections and special tests will be defined by a tulip road book. Competitors are not required to bring a marshal, but it would be appreciated.

We hope you can join us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, the landowners of the special test venues for their continued support and the Frome Cattle Market as start and finish, this being a new venue for us.
