Shannons Classic Rallye Tour 2019

By Shannons - 02 August 2019

The Shannons Classic Rallye is a unique opportunity to take part in a world-renowned Targa Australia tarmac event, purely as a motoring enthusiast. Participants will enjoy the freedom of driving on closed road Special Stages shared with the Targa Great Barrier Reef.

Rub shoulders with legends, feel the rush of the corners, brace for the g-forces and enjoy the exhilaration of the scenic mountain roads of the Atherton Tablelands.


  • Non-competitive
  • Posted speed limit
  • Classic vehicle – minimum 25 years old
  • Minimum CAMS Level 2 Non-Speed License

The tour adheres to signposted limits, although there will still be plenty of opportunity to enjoy your car in a spirited manner, just how the manufacturer intended. The Shannons Classic Rallye follows the same 16 courses as the competition vehicles, using both sides of the road during the closed stages. You will feel every twist and turn of the event and cross the hard-earned finish line, just like the competitors.
