TARGA Tasmania at George Town is an event for all ages and all walks of life.
On Monday, there were the young, the old, the experts and the novices lining the streets to see Targa drivers push their cars to the limit.
There was also a strong canine contingent.
Locals Shane and Cheryl Nichals, with dog Ty, 11-year-old Homer Stanton, Brian Fraser and Rod Lake had arguably the best seat in the house.
They were propped up on the back of a ute, parked on the corner of Macquarie and Ann streets — right in the thick of the action.
It didn't come easy, though — the crew were there by 8.30am to secure their prime viewing position.
Launceston brothers George and Dick Prins are long-time Targa enthusiasts.
Dick recalled the event from its early years, when he was based at Cressy.
"We used to chase them about all over the place, just to see what was going on," he said.
"It's just a glorious event."
