Centsible Car & Truck Rentals re-sign for a 3rd year as the official rental company of Targa Newfoundland

For immediate release

ST. JOHN’S (February 3, 2016) – Targa Newfoundland is proud to announce that it will once again use the vehicles of Centsible Car & Truck Rentals to transport volunteers, race officials and their equipment for the 15th Anniversary Targa Newfoundland this September.

The partnership, which began in 2014, will continue with the use of several makes of sedans, hatchbacks, and vans in 2016.  Each vehicle will be assigned to specific management and volunteer teams, each with their own duties and special assignments, that will utilize each vehicle to its maximum potential.

Derek Thomas, General Manager of Centsible Car & Truck Rentals, is proud to have the Centsible Car & Truck Rental logo on each rental vehicle that it provides to Targa’s management and volunteer teams.

“Targa is a professional motorsports event and we really like how the volunteers use our vehicles to represent that fact while performing their tasks” stated Derek. “We had a great experience with Targa the last couple of years and we didn’t hesitate to continue being a partner with them in 2016, their 15th Anniversary event.  Being locally owned and operated, supporting a home-grown event such as Targa Newfoundland is something we are proud to do.”

Darren Sheppard, General Manager of Targa Newfoundland, is pleased with the association between the companies over the previous two events.  “Dealing with Derek and his knowledgeable staff is a pleasure.  They have always been quick with answers and provide professional service to our volunteers and officials when picking up and dropping off the vehicles.  The fact they are locally owned and operated is an added bonus and we look forward to another great year working together.”

Centsible Car & Truck Rentals is a 100% Newfoundland owned and operated business and salutes Targa for partnering and supporting local business.  Centsible is proud to be a part of a world-class motorsports event that has brought millions of dollars to the Newfoundland economy and supported many local charities during its long history in Newfoundland and beyond.

Centsible Car & Truck Rentals is a full service rental firm with three locations in Newfoundland, offering modern cars, trucks, and vans, through rentals, leasing, and sales.  For more information, please check out their website at http://www.centsible.ca.

Owned and operated by Newfoundland International Motorsports Limited, Targa Newfoundland is one of three internationally recognized Targa motorsports events in the world.  The 2016 competition will start in St. John’s on September 12th and concludes back in the capital on September 17th.  The annual rally will cover more than 1,600 kilometers of the challenging, twisty roads of the central and eastern portion of Newfoundland, including over 440 kilometers of closed-road, flat-out Targa stages.
