2015 Quit Targa West
Supplementary Regulations
13-16 August 2015
WELCOME MESSAGE
th
Welcome to 2015 Quit Targa West, the 11 running of WA’s most prestigious tarmac rally which includes new and additional
stages to help celebrate this milestone. This event is recognised as one of the top tarmac rallies in Australia.
The event will run on 13−16 August, a time when the scenery of WA is magnificent, ensuring competitors drive in some of the
most beautiful parts of Perth’s surrounding shires of Toodyay, Chittering, Kalamunda, Perth Hills and the City of Swan when
they are at their best.
We are grateful that the authorities and residents allow the competitors to enjoy their magnificent surroundings and use some
of the best stretches of tarmac this huge State has to offer. The grand finale of the event will be the City of Perth Super Stage,
preceded by the awesome 12 km Special Stage in Malaga.
Our Rally HQ and Parc Ferme are moving into the CBD to be at the Perth & Tattersalls Bowling Club across the road to the
Hyatt. This now joins HQ, Parc Ferme, Accommodation and Presentation Dinner in close proximity to make it easier for all
and encourage more competitors to stay at the Hyatt and enjoy the total social atmosphere of the event.
All the stages are detailed in the Road Book for what promises to be another hugely exciting and challenging event for both
Classic and Modern entries in both the Competition and Challenge categories.
New for this year will be a stage around the Barbagallo Raceway, with a total difference, using the access road and the Pits. It
will then be run in the opposite direction. On Friday we will run the Kalamunda Stage in the East to West direction for the first
time, which will put a different slant on the stage. And on Saturday our aim is to have two runs of the Maryville Stage in Lower
Chittering.
As in previous years, we will restrict the field to 100 cars and we are delighted to welcome back an ever increasing number of
repeat competitors. It also gives us great pleasure to introduce and welcome the growing ranks of ‘Rookie’ entries, all of
whom we look forward to meeting at the pre-event Rookie Sessions. At these sessions we will ensure they are fully briefed on
what to expect and how to prepare for what is now one of the fastest growing and most exciting areas of motorsport.
As well as the main event itself, there are a number of pre-rally functions and activities that are open for all to attend. These
include our ‘Social and Information’ evenings; various public displays and a competitor’s sponsor track day. Details will be
broadcast via email and will be available on our website − www.targawest.com.au.
Once the action gets under way, the Northbridge café strip Show’N’Shine on the Friday night will be a fabulous chance to
relax, meet up with other competitors and show off your cars to admirers in the closed street environment. The Sunday Night
Gala Presentation Dinner will be a fitting grand finale after the pressure of competition is over.
As in previous years our key goals are to provide a highly enjoyable ‘5-Star’ event for competitors where the spirit of the event
is centred on taking part and enjoyment of the thrill of the open road in a controlled and competitive environment.
With this in mind, we would draw to the attention of all competitors that it is their sole responsibility to ensure that they drive to
suit the prevailing conditions and within their own and their vehicles’ capabilities. This includes awareness of the road
conditions, the level of safety equipment and that they fully acknowledge the risks and exposure while competing. They also
need to review their level of personal and vehicle insurance cover and be satisfied they are adequate for their specific needs
and circumstances.
Finally, Quit Targa West would simply be unable to run without the enormous support and help from so many of our event
sponsors, individuals, organisations, car clubs, volunteers and supporters who so generously give their time, expertise,
resources and commitment to make the event run. We would like to extend our thanks to all of them and to ask you to
recognise and thank them for their input whenever you get the opportunity over the course of your time with us in 2015.
Once again, the Quit Targa West organising team wishes all competitors a safe, competitive and, importantly, a fun
motorsport event. Remember, SAFETY is our highest priority.
Kind regards
Ross Tapper
Clerk of the Course / Event Director

APPENDIX II - RALLYSAFE
With the integration of the Rallysafe system into Australian Targa/Tarmac rallying, it is very important that all
competitors comply with some very simple conditions and instructions, these same conditions and instructions
are in use in many varied overseas and national events and allow the system to work efficiently and provide the
best protection and ease of use for the competitors and event organisers.
Teams must make provision in their competition vehicle for the Rallysafe tracking system prior to every event
Installation instructions and specifications are available on www.rallysafe.com.au/resources and a new
competitor Training Video showing all aspects of the system can be found here,
http://rallysafe.com.au/2013/02/competitors/
Rallysafe Installation Kits (incl antenna, rollcage or diamond mount & power wiring loom) MUST be purchased
from RallySafe, with two weeks lead time for postage and handling, directly from the Rallysafe online store –
http://rallysafe.com.au/shop/ Options for different installation types or cable lengths are available.
Correct installation of the fitting kit including wiring polarity and permanent power connection will be checked at
scrutineering. Any incorrectly installed kits will result in failure to pass scrutineering and will result in a Re-present
at a later date.
Please Note: It is mandatory that the Rallysafe unit be wired directly to a constant 12V feed, either the battery or
the battery side of the isolator switch as per the Rallysafe fitting instructions; connection to an accessories feed or
cigarette lighter is not acceptable. It is up to the competitor to fuse this supply with a 5 amp fuse if they choose.
The unit has its own internal circuit protection.
The Rallysafe units will be available for collection from the Rallysafe table at Crew Briefing Session. Rallysafe
unit user guide/installation instructions will be provided with the unit handout.
Rallysafe has substantial benefits for both competitors and organisers including:
• Real time tracking via GPS / Satellite transmission.
• In–car hazard notifications including ‘SOS’ capability.
• Timing (using light beams) aligned with in–car communication system.
• Ability to view progress of any car via internet and Google Maps.
• ‘Push to Pass’ capability.
Should a competitor experience a problem with their Rallysafe unit during the event, they should notify an event
official at the next control of the problem, and ensure they speak to a Rallysafe representative at the next
available service break to have any issues rectified.
Any attempt to tamper with the unit will result in a message transmitted to race control as well as logged internally
to the unit; and will be dealt with appropriately by event officials.
Should a competitor retire from the event, they must return the tracking unit to the Rallysafe team (only return to
a Rallysafe representative or CRO) in the Service Park or as soon as practical.
It is the competitors’ responsibility to return the Rallysafe unit. Failure to do so will result in the competitor
being liable for the cost of the unit. If due to medical or situational reasons this is not possible, a CRO must be
notified prior to 8.00pm on the night of event completion so an alternative can be arranged.
Please Note: RallySafe offer a damage waiver fee which covers the unit for fire and/or damage for $15+GST per
event, or an annual fee for multiple events of $50+GST. The loss or theft of unit will not be covered and the
damaged unit must be presented to avoid a cost. The damage waiver fee must be purchased on line at
http://rallysafe.com.au/shop/damage waiver prior to the nominated event/events.
