Great day despite Targa mix-up

Molesworth Primary School provided packed lunches for each
Targa crew as they arrived at New Norfolk.
MOTORSPORT fans enjoyed the chance of a close look at this year's Targa Tasmania entrants in New Norfolk earlier today, despite confusion over the location of the racecar assembly.

Without warning, the event was moved from the advertised location of Circle St and upper High St. Instead, unexpected road closures were put in place to accommodate the event in lower High St and Bathurst St. Despite the confusion, the new location still provided plenty of up-close viewing of the more than 300 cars participating in the 25th running of Targa Tasmania.

Spectators and competitors mingled at
the St Matthew's Church end of Arthur
Square in New Norfolk.
Drew and Fletcher Kent's 1971 Ford

and David Rust's 2013 Daytona Coupe.
