Perth’s premier tarmac rally Quit Targa West has signed a sponsorship arrangement with Perth’s Mercedes-Benz dealerships (Diesel Motors & Westpoint Star) to showcase a selection of their high performance AMG vehicles at the 2015 event, which is held from the 13 to 16 August.
Car enthusiasts will get to view the rare high-power production AMG vehicles plus the 60 competitive rally vehicles a number of times including the Forrest Place Ceremonial Start on August 13, Northbridge Show ‘n’ Shine on August 14 and the City Sprint on August 16.
Rally spectators will also get to see the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG 4MATIC and A45 AMG 4MATIC in action, when they are driven by professional drivers at the prelude of each of the 32 rally stages.
The association between the Mercedes-Benz Dealers and Targa West will expand in 2016 to include a new, one marque touring category, the Targa Tour, which will give AMG owners a controlled environment to take a spirited drive in their vehicles on some of Perth’s best roads.
Quit Targa West Director Ross Tapper said the sponsorship arrangement would further promote and strengthen tarmac rallying in Western Australia.
“We are proud that Perth’s premier tarmac rally is associated with a brand that is such an innovator in the high-performance vehicle segment, and we look forward to seeing the partnership grow in 2016 into an exciting new category,” said Mr Tapper.
“The addition of the AMG vehicles at this year’s Quit Targa West will be a drawcard for enthusiasts.”
Diesel Motors and Westpoint Star Managing Director Jason Novatsis says the partnership will showcase the AMG vehicles in an environment which will highlight their high-level of driving performance. Read more....
