A CLEAR sky and warm weather greeted spectators as expensive-looking cars roared past, drivers waved and others burnt rubber.
Targa Tasmania continued on Tuesday for day 2 of the highly anticipated event.
Spectators wanting an up-close look at the cars went to the Moriarty stage near Latrobe to see the drivers navigate the tight hairpin.
Mike and Moira Wellman, of Legana, rode their motorbikes to Tuesday's stage to spectate.
"We look forward to it every year," Mr Wellman said.
"We're here more so for the older cars. When Targa first started - they were the golden years.
"It is still good to see the new cars and hear them."
Another spectator Stuart Rattray, of Burnie, was lucky enough to have the day off work.
"It's a good event, it's good for the state and the economy, especially in the times we're going through at the moment," Mr Rattray said.
Devonport's Trent Rigby visited Moriarty with his sister and nephew.
"My sister is good friends with Jamie Vandenberg, so we're here to see him through," he said.
Targa competitors will return to Launceston on Wednesday evening before heading to Strahan and then Hobart for the finish on Saturday.
