Targa West Rally Car Display Langley Park

As part of the 2011 Targa West Rally, the Perth super stage at Langley Park saw a display of interesting historic racing cars and cars from other car clubs which was combined with the rally event on Sunday 28 August. Amongst the car clubs there were: Vintage Sports Car Club of WA, HSV Owners Club of WA, WA Toyota Car Club, Street Car Racing Association of WA & Triumph Sports Owners Association of WA.

Overall this was a very well organised and planned event by Targa West with a well-chosen central location that was quite accessible. In addition, it had plenty of facilities such as food and toilets provided for the spectators and competitors. Best of all, entry was free!
