Solway Coast Targa Rally

Solway Coast Targa Rally

Solway Car Club Ltd are pleased to promote the Solway Coast TARGA, in association with our long-term sponsors, the Stewart family of


Solway Car Club regret to inform you that the Solway Coast Targa Rally scheduled for Sunday 8th October, will not take place in 2023.

Despite plans being well underway for the event on the ‘Range’ near Kirkcudbright, Landmarc who run the facility have recently imposed a new cost structure on the Club, and these vast increases makes the 2023 Targa, and any subsequent events on the Range, financially unviable.

We will endeavour to investigate other potential venues in and around the Stewartry, and hope that the Targa can make a return in a future year to create a fun and competitive day out for us all.

We are proud to have organised three successful Targas since 2019, and we would like to thank all past competitors for their support, our Army of Marshals for volunteering, the local staff at the Kirkcudbright MOD Training Facility, the Arden House Hotel, and last but not least the Stewart family of for supporting us over the years.


Finally, I’d also like to personally thank Albert, Norman and Glen for all their work to make the three Targas the success they were.
