Hopefully 2021 will be better than 2020.

The Bath Festival Targa entry opened today, you had to be quick too.
There are 119 entries for the 75 places.

A decent events calendar for the South is being compiled Here
Even if all events don't run there looks to be a fine chance of getting some fun.

Hoping to get my Panda out on a couple of single venue, tarmac Targas this year. Got my eye in the one at Kemble and i think there’s one at Finmere at some point too?
I have a feeling all of them are going to fill up very quickly!

Interesting that you use a Panda!. Is that a classic one, or a more recent Car?

There seems to a packed season of events this year, I just hope they can all be made to run. But I’m afraid I can’t see anything happening before April, despite the quick fill of entries for the Festival. Bearing in mind entries opened and it filled hours before the lockdown was announced!

I’ve got an entry in on the HERO challenge 1 in March, but again I don’t hold out much hope.

It’s 2008 Panda 100HP, so small and light!
I’m currently using it for autosolos so looking to step up to some Targas this year if Boris allows!

Ah right, nice little cars the 100hp, though you may find some Targa's could be a bit rough, the lowered suspension might be a bit short of travel. Need to choose your events carefully.

Yeah absolutely right, I'm going to just focus on any single venue, tarmac based ones. I was Chief Marshall on the Hatsford Targa last year, that was an eye opener on how rough some could be!

There were a few nasty ones to catch you out the first time round. Good event though.
Hope to get an entry again if it runs this year.

Just managed to get an entry for the Devils Targa in May.
Entries opened 18.00, by 18.06 it was full, 65 cars entered, 45 Cars as reserves!
Good indication of how popular Targa has become, plus the pent up demand from lockdown for the first Northern event this year.
