The 31st annual Targa 66 gathering for high-performance sports cars and race cars returns to Palm Beach (Fla.) International Raceway on February 11-13, 2022.
Founder and host Brian Redman has extended an invitation to owners of modern high-performance road cars and racing cars of all ages to exercise their cars on the 10-turn, 2.2-mile state-of-the art road course featuring some of the fastest and most challenging corners and straightaways.
Three days of track use are offered, and entrants can expect 6-8 hours of track time on the weekend. “Targa 66 is a relaxed event to get race cars ready for the 2022 racing season or to just exercise them at an interesting track,” said Redman, the world-renowned racing champion who founded Targa 66 in 1991.
“For those in the colder climates, it is a nice time of year to visit Florida, with temperatures expected to be in the high 70s for Palm Beach in February.” Redman added.
The event’s host hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn in PGA Gardens, Florida.
