Targa Tasmania icon Greg Crick named TRACK & TARMAC special guest
Updated: Jan 2
TRACK & TARMAC is thrilled to announce that Targa Tasmania icon and Australian motorsport legend Greg Crick will be joining our inaugural Tasmanian Tarmac Tour as a special guest speaker.
Crick won the very first Targa Tasmania event in 1992. He repeated that success with a back-to-back win in 1993, both times in a 3.0-litre V6-powered Honda NSX.
His 1992 drive showed how local knowledge – and brilliant engineering – can trump even the best-prepared factory race-car. Crick and his navigator Greg Preece beat 1967 Formula 1 champ Denny Hulme in a purpose-built BMW M5 that year, the five-day race around Tasmania now widely recognised as the event’s greatest.
As one of Australia’s best privateer racers Crick’s career includes stints in the Australian GT Championship, Australian Sports Sedan Championship, Australian Touring Car Championship, V8 Supercar Championship, and Targa Tasmania.
Crick, a car-dealer by day, retired from top-level motorsport in 2015 following serious carbon monoxide poisoning at the Bathurst 12 Hour race in 2014. He will join TRACK & TARMAC guests for dinner in Launceston on the final night of their Tasmanian Tarmac Tour.
Bookings are now open via trackandtarmac.com
