At least two stages of the Targa New Zealand Ultimate Road Race will take place on local roads in October.
The race takes place in stages and drivers race against the clock to earn points over the four-day series.
At noon on Thursday, October 15, competitors will be racing from the intersection of Cove Road and Tara Road in Mangawhai through to 1069 Cove Road, north of Langs Beach.
The following day, the race continues at 12.15pm in Wellsford, from the start of Whakapirau Road in Te Hana, then west along Wellsford Valley Road and down Port Albert Road to the intersection with State Highway One.
The sealing of Wellsford Valley Road route was completed by Auckland Transport last month, making it eligible for the race.
The full four-day race spans stages all the way from Albany to Whangarei and then back down to Ellerslie in Auckland, before heading to Whitianga in the Coromandel Peninsula and back to Pukekohe in Auckland. The race runs from Wednesday, October 14, to Sunday, October 18.
There are different entry classes for the event, ranging from rally car racers to everyday drivers. Entry details: Targa.nz
