Video: Targa Tasmania through Porsche’s eyes

The 2012 Targa Tasmania is still a few months away but I spotted these videos and couldn’t help but share them.

These videos of the 2011 Targa were shot by Porsche, who were celebrating their 60th Anniversary and spending up big to make sure they did it right. Not only did they send out their biggest name historical driver, Walter Rohrl, but they also sent a crack film crew who did a wonderful job of filming the state that I live in and its premier motoring event – Targa Tasmania.

Targa is a tarmac rally comprising 47 stages on public roads, held over 5 days. It’s not for the faint-hearted. In these videos you’ll get to see some great cars, some of Tasmania’s fantastic driving roads and of course, just a little bit of the spectacular scenery we have down here (really, there’s much better stuff than what they show, but what they show is nice).

Each video is around 4 minutes, so if you’ve got 20 minutes to spare then sit back, relax and enjoy.
