Targa Florio Australia | Review 2022

Aus Grand Prix - Targa Florio Aus

The Targa Florio Australian Tribute has been run and done for 2022. It was the best event so far in the history of this event in Australia. Here is a summary of the 70+ drivers who got a taste of La Dolce Vita in the the Targa Florio Australia 2022 edition.

 

Mon 4 April – Day 1:

Event start at lunch at the beautiful Point Leo Estate. Competitors will arrive and complete documentation with plenty of time to enjoy the sculpture park and lunch before the official start to the 2022 event. Day 1 will be a half day driving the sweeping curves to Arthurs Seat and winding the roads down into Flinders where the main street will be closed for the community to come out and enjoy watching us compete down Cook St. We look forward to a lively Monday afternoon fun followed by dinner and accommodation at the renowned Flinders Hotel.

Tue 5 April – Day 2:

Competitors enjoyed the roads of the Mornington Peninsula with a stop at the Tyabb airport, historic planes flanked the competition as the crowd was out to enjoy the cars competing before a fun filled drive around Westernport Bay into west Gippsland. A stop for lunch at the Korumburra Showgrounds with the School children cheering each of the cars through the competition and then off to Inverloch for a competition stage at the Marina, a recap of the day at the Inlet Hotel and a special night at award winning RACV Inverloch.

Wed 6 April – Day 3:

Leaving Inverloch the competition then drove to Stony Creek track, it was a joy seeing cars of every shape, size and length navigate the tight corners of the Go cart Track! The competition loved the Italian community and screaming school children (rev it! rev it!) in Mirboo North with special hand made gifts from the children treasured by all and a spirited drive up and around the Haunted Hills track. Then taking in some of Victoria’s great driving roads up into the mountains, Blue Rock dam, through Noojee and back down to the RACV Healesville where 4 Pillars Gin set the tone for a great night.

Thurs 7 April – Day 4:

From Healesville, the cars roared through Yarra Glen up to a lovely community event in Seymour, more treasured gifts from the community there, then from Romsey to Albert Park for an unforgettable Finale driving the grand prix track and awards night at the Torque bar at the GP.

Thurs 7 April – 10 April: Australian Grand Prix

The event enjoyed 8 of Victoria’s Tourism regions and was planned to combine community involvement and provide a link between Victoria’s regions and the Australian Grand Prix. A full week of motoring starting at Point Leo Estate and finishing at the Grand Prix on Thursday. The fun continued each day with the Targa Florio cars driving the track each day, enjoying the best seat on the track! There were no words as competitors hopped out of their cars after each track time… just smiles and pure joy!!
