To enter, all you need is a car that meets all the required safety standards for brakes, tyres and seat belts and has a Fire Extinguisher fitted.
The Driver and Co-Driver will obviously need helmets and a minimum of neck to wrist to ankle non-flammable clothing and fully enclosed shoes (although higher standards, including driving suits and frontal head restraints, are strongly recommended). A minimum of a Motorsport Australia Speed Licence is required for both Driver and Co-Driver.  See the Supp Regs on the Official Noticeboard page for more information.

At only $230 per entry, it is great motorsport value with 4 runs over the 3.25 km Special Stage. Held mid-week on a Thursday night, it does not eat into your valuable weekend time.

The Shannons Targa Rallysprint series is designed to cater for drivers with a wide-range of skill and experience, from novice through to those preparing for the WA’s premier tarmac event, Targa West.

Drivers and Co-Driver have their acceleration, braking, handling and teamwork skills tested as they navigate their way around the track against the clock.

The Shannons Targa Rallysprint Series is a series of 6 Rallysprints held over the summer months.

A Rallysprint as defined by Motorsport Australia is for a Driver and Co-Driver competing in a Tarmac or Gravel Rally Car.

The event is open to Drivers who hold a minimum of a Motorsport Australia Speed licence. All cars must meet minimum safety standards, and are required to undertake pre-event scrutiny. Whilst a ‘roll cage’ and ‘harnesses’ are not mandatory, they are very strongly recommended.

The Mid-Year Shannons Targa Rallysprint action kicks off at 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm on Sunday 31 July.

Watching all the action at the Shannons Targa Rallysprint is absolutely FREE.

The Motorplex has ample parking, and entry is free.

The pit area is open for spectators to mingle with the competitors and get up close and personal with the cars and crews. There is also Coffee and Food vans available.

There are a number of fantastic locations to watch the rally action including the bridge at the top of the Drag Strip, or over near the Main Motorplex Entrance, affectionately known as the “key hole”, or even the start or finish area.

Action starts at 6pm and is normally wrapped up by 9.00pm.

The only thing we do ask is that Spectators park in the Eastern most lane of the pits to allow the other areas to be utilised by competitors and their service crews.
