I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

This year's Targa Adelaide Night Stage is again being held at the Wayville showgrounds, with spectators getting an opportunity to get up close to the rally cars and talk to the drivers in the Jubilee Pavilion after the race ends.
The rally cars will do two laps of a specially built 1.5 kilometre circuit in the showgrounds, while spectators seated on grandstands get a magnificent view of the competitors racing around the track.
It's a great evening of family entertainment, giving you the chance to see the car rally entrants without heading for the hills.
The first day of Targa Adelaide has cars leaving the Jubilee Pavilion at 8.15 for the north east part of the Adelaide Hills. Starting at semi rural Upper Hermitage, the cars will also visit Anstey Hill and Chain of Ponds. A town was actually built at Chain of Ponds in the 1850's but demolished in the 1970's to safeguard water quality in the local reservoir.
Finally, after passing Kersbrook and Forreston the cars will return to base at Wayville.
The Targa Adelaide rally moves to the Adelaide Hills immediately east of Adelaide for day 2. Starting at Montacute and scenic Mount Lofty, the car rally will progress through Piccadilly, Marble Hill and Verdun. Rally cars then head back towards Adelaide through the sharply winding road of Upper Sturt, past Belair National Park to Belair.
It should be a great opportunity for photos of the rally cars against spectacular panoramic views of the Adelaide city skyline.

On arrival at the finish line, competitors receive their Finisher‟s Medallions from hostesses, while thousands of locals interested in car racing will turn out to join the celebrations. Last year was a very popular family event with live entertainment for the crowd, and Norwood is sure to match that.
