2005 NDSOC Tassie Targa Tour 04-09/02/05

Event Report and Pictures: Ben Winstone


The Nissan/Datsun Sports Owners Club held its annual Tassie Targa Tour for the second time this year. The tour involves traveling around the state of Tasmania on a variety of roads including numerous stages from the Targa Tasmania road rally.

Held over six days, the group of 30-plus cars travelled from the docks at Devonport down along the west coast taking in some twisty forest roads, then headed inland to Hobart where the club held a show and shine display in the middle of the city before travelling back up the east coast along some fantastic coastal roads mixed with a few more winding mountain passes. A track day at Symmons Plains raceway was held on the last day with many owners taking their cars out and pushing them to the limit on the track, the day was closed with a burnout demonstration by the mazdarotary.net project car, a 13BT Datsun 1200 Coupe (see photos on page three), a perfect end to the trip, the group then made their way back up to Devonport for the ferry back to Melbourne.
