I just spent some of the most amazing days of my life working as part of a team of volunteers that makes the Targa Newfoundland happen. Yes, it is run by volunteers.
This is the most unique automotive event of its kind in the world and it is held on one of the most fascinating islands in the western hemisphere. There are only two other Targas held in the world. This year was the tenth time that Targa Newfoundland has been held.
This rally is held on public roads with the cooperation of many communities and its people. It means that for a few hours their community and life is disrupted by teams of stage operations crews and roaring race cars as they get to see and be part of this special event.
Most everyone I met as I traveled from stage to stage during the week-long event just loved excitement and cars and looked forward to it coming each year. There are always a few that just don’t get it.
NTV (Newfoundland TV) has a question of the week that it has proposed: Should Targa Newfoundland Continue?
