Targa Sixty Six was started in 1991 by Brian Redman for owners of classic and modern high performance cars that do not necessarily wish to race them, but who like to drive at speed under controlled conditions, in the company of others with like interests. After 31 consecutive years at Palm Beach International Raceway, the event is moving two hours south in 2023 to Homestead-Miami Speedway. The move comes following the sad news that PBIR has closed its doors after 57 years of operation. “Homestead-Miami has everything we need for a Targa event,” remarked James Redman, the event’s organiser. “Easy to get to by road and air, both domestic and International, good hotels just 2 miles from the track, large, paved paddock, garages and a pit suite for our members’ catered lunches, motorhome parking in the paddock with hookups. We already have several Targa members planning a few extra days enjoying the Florida Keys—Key Largo is just 30 miles from the track!”
A mid-February staple, the Targa Sixty Six has traditionally served as a casual winter weekend with an abundance of track time and a good opportunity to test and tune before the start of the historic race season. Registration for the 2023 event opens soon at https://gorace.com.
