NASA at Targa California

NASA - SoCal Rally

Thursday, Jun 8 — Sunday, Jun 11, 2017
Targa California, ,

Welcome to the Targa California 2017 Registration page. Please go over all the information below carefully. Our time to the event is short, so it is important that we communicate clearly on what this event is about.


The Targa California is for 1975, and earlier, era classic cars. We do allow some continuation series, and replica cars that meet the spirit of the event.

In general, any 1975 or older make / model can register for the event that fits within this spirit.


Using the Porsche 911 as an example, a back dated 1994 964 that LOOKS like a 73 RS (or RSR) would be eligible. A stock 964 would not. We have made some exceptions for entrants that have supported us from the beginning, or your classic car broke down at the last minute < we want PROOF!


If you think your post 1975 car may qualify, because of it’s unique character (example Renault R5 Turbo, a newer Alfa) please contact the event director Dave at asap for pre acceptance.


This event is a non competitive tour ! This is not a race, there is no timing, no prizes for first (or  last ;-) ) We share the roads with the rest of the world out there. And as such, you will respect others and the situations you will find yourselves in. This is not a parade either. You proceed at your own comfortable safe pace. Find others that share your pace and have fun.


Entries are limited to a total of 110 cars. We sell out fast!


Apologies for the late posting of the registration, but we wanted to secure accommodations for the entire group in the Mammoth Mountain area. Accommodation info will be updated and posted both here, and the site as soon as it is in ink.


NO Refunds once you process your registration!  You can transfer your entry to someone else, but that has to happen before May 15th. That way your substitute can get their appropriate sized goodies included in the event.  Be sure you will be joining us before entering.


NO ordering of goodies after the event. We will offer any extra goodies at the Farewell Breakfast on Sunday June 11th.
