Tarmac rallying -Targa events in Western Australia promote ‘Quit smoking’

Want to help promote a  healthy lifestyle? Have a look at whom the Targa organizers have found over in Western Australia to sponsor their four events a year suitable for novices to serious competitors.  Healthways has come on board to spread the message about Quit Smoking.

So if you are competitive and over in Western Australia with its open spaces and lovely long roads, check out this website for more information on four events a year. Already August dates have been set for 2016, 2017 and 2018 so you have plenty of time to prepare. It is rallying and competitive, rather than the slower and more scenic long distance drive.

I agree wholeheartedly with director Ross Tapper on mental and physical stamina.

“We are pleased the sport of rallying has been chosen to advocate for living a healthy, active lifestyle, and as promoters of the important Quit smoking message,” said Targa West Director, Ross Tapper. People who are new to motorsport are surprised by the high level of fitness required to compete, particularly in rally where the stages are long and demanding and you can’t afford to get fatigued. Due to the growing popularity of tarmac rallying in Western Australia, our event’s portfolio has increased this year to four Targa events: Targa South West, Targa Bunbury Sprint, Targa West and Targa City Sprint. We’re excited to announce all four events will promote the Quit message and they will also be completely smoke free.”

“Quit Targa South West is an event suited to all levels of motorsport experience. We get everyone from the tarmac rally novice competing in their daily drive, to the serious competitor with the purpose built rally car. There’s fantastic camaraderie between all competitors, the experienced and the rookies,” Tapper said.
