Targa is a week of pure escapism. For me the communities, the racing, the volunteers and the camaraderie have combined to make a bucket list event an annual ‘pilgrimage’. My advice to those thinking about this, who have petrol in their veins, is to find a way to get to Targa Newfoundland. If this isn’t fun, then you need to check your pulse.

After hearing stories of Targa Newfoundland from fellow racers, my dad and I competed in 2015 and the experience lived up to its prestige. We thoroughly enjoyed the race and meeting fellow race nuts from around the world. Beautifully rugged scenery, world class racing, extraordinary camaraderie and a top-notch organization have us looking forward to racing in Newfoundland again.
