About the 2018 Tour with Ferrari:
The event is called a "Tour" - it is not a race, but the roads are closed in many sections. It follows the same course as the competition vehicles, on closed roads using both sides of the road, ensuring you feel every twist and turn of the event.
The lead car sets the pace typically around 130 kms per hour, which is very spirited on these twisty roads. No helmets. You must have one passenger who helps navigate.
The Tour also lets you relish the stunning scenery of Tasmania while indulging in the many culinary pleasures and some of Australia’s best wines.
This is an ideal event for partners or friends to undertake together. Stimulating. Engrossing. Engaging. And above all else, fun. You will meet many other enthusiasts.
Ferrari Australasia will organise everything for each participant – from the journey across Bass Strait, to the entry into the event, the accommodation, food, drink, hospitality and so on.
Everyone in the Ferrari group last year had a lot of fun and speak highly of the event, and many are back again in 2018.
The program will be finalised by mid February and the plan is:
Saturday, 14th April: Overnight sailing to Tasmania on Spirit of Tasmania ferry, departure from Melbourne.
Sunday 15th April: Arrive, complete paperwork, briefings, check-in.
Monday 16th April: Official start of Targa Tasmania 2018, two stages and George Town Street Stage followed by corporate lunch function.
