The City of Perth once again welcomes the LF Performance Targa City Sprint. The 2020 event will be held on Sunday, 9th August 2020.

The LF Performance Targa City Sprint is a speed event competition where up to 80 cars compete on the City of Perth Special Stage on the Sunday morning prior to the Targa West cars arriving in the afternoon. Cars start at 30 second intervals and race against the clock with the winner being the car that is fastest over the 4 runs of the City of Perth stage.

There is typically a wide variety of cars competing including Classics like Ford Escorts and Mustangs, Toranas and Commodores to more modern turbocharged Mitsubishi Evos, Subaru WRXs and Nissan GTRs. And what event would be complete without an exotic or two. What about a Ferrari 488 Spider or Porsche GT3 RS?

Spectating is FREE!!

Not only is there the action of the LF Performance Targa City Sprint to watch but alongside Riverside Drive there is also a display of up to 300 cars and bikes of interest in the Shannons Classics on the Park display.

There are many vantage points for Spectating, for further details see our Spectator information here.
