Action Car & Truck Accessories become major Targa sponsor for 2016

ST. JOHN’S (June 23, 2016) – Action Car and Truck Accessories will be the windshield banner sponsor for the 15th annual Targa Newfoundland this September. Action has signed on to become one of the major sponsors of the event and to have its logo on all competitor vehicles windshields in the annual tarmac rally.

Established in 1980, Action Car and Truck Accessories is Canada’s leading distributor and retailer of automotive aftermarket accessories.  With 36 retail stores, a commercial fleet installation network and a wholesale division with
four major distribution centers and four regional warehouses, it has made Action able to offer a very large and diverse selection of car, truck, jeep, SUV and commercial accessories throughout Canada.

Action has been a part of Newfoundland and Labrador communities for over 30 years with locations in Corner Brook, Grand Falls-Windsor, Gander, Clarenville and St. John’s which are directly involved in the Targa event.

“We are very excited to be a part of Targa Newfoundland,” says Jason Coish, Regional Manager.  “I can still remember the first event 15 years ago and I’m really looking forward to seeing the cars and drivers who come from all over the world to compete in this event.”

Action Car and Truck Accessories will have two pickup trucks involved with the Targa this September.  One, driven by Chief Technical Inspector and Action Team Leader Joe Dowden, the other, by Incident Response Commander Tom Norris.  Both pickups will be fully equipped to deal with any technical issue or incident that may arise during the event.

“Targa is very pleased to have such a successful Canadian company come on board for our 15th year,” stated Targa President Robert Giannou.  “We are quite happy that Action Car and Truck Accessories has seen the potential in becoming involved with Targa in an official capacity.  Action will get plenty of promotion with the windshield banner on all the competition vehicles and their pickup trucks on the course.  And with Targa’s national reach, it will provide their locations across Canada with increased visibility. ”

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 16th.  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.
